Hello all !

I finally bought a +-56 old computer and Aros One x86 1.6 version rocks on it !
The only fact is that i need a wifi usb dongle to pretent to internet connexion but i have no idea for any ?
Perhaps have you some ideas about it ?

But apart this, this is superb even in vesa mode :)

Wouldn't it be easier to find an Internal WiFi PCI Card?

Find compatibility HERE

but there is the wifi Netgear wg111v3 dongle, but it has always worked badly, the only solution is via cable with a network card, I have an RTL8169

If you don't have a free PCI Slot for a WiFi Card, then you could use a supported LAN Network Card, forget about the Wifi USB Dongle that doesn't work well.

Merry Christmas to you and family too

If the need of a wifi connection is because you don't want cables all around your house and your pc has a working ethernet card, then you can use a wifi repeater. Many of them can provide an ethernet connection, so your computer can connect to the repeater and the repeater connects to your wifi router.
