Good luck! It's a tough thing to get working, so I hate to downplay
your hopes, but you may want to be a bit less optimistic.   :-(

Wi-fi isn't well-supported in DOS. But ....

In bare DOS, try running NICSCAN.EXE (from below):


Otherwise, I suppose other people can help more. All I can suggest
(for "quick 'n easy" DOS-based 'Net use) is based upon emulators, e.g.
VirtualBox + PCNTPK or SwsVpkt via WinXP. So, if you're really
impatient, at least that will give you some idea of how things work.
(P.S. Try the Dillo port, it's cool.)
