    It's very unlikely that there are many manufacturers out there who produce them.

    Why do you want DOS drivers? :blink

    Depends what you mean by 'card'. But the main problem is that it would need to operate in real-mode, and the lack of memory space in that mode would be a headache.

    I've heard of USB DOS drivers, so it *might* be possible to run WiFi on that. But by the time you have loaded those up, a shim to get packet drivers to work, then the DOS version of TCP/IP I wonder how much memory would be left to actualy run an app!
