wfw3.11 networking setup

i tried to setup the networking with wfw3.11, the network is MS network, the ethernet card is ISA NE2000 compatible, i set the IRQ at 5, I/O address at 0x220h, which should be ok with the manual.i use checkit to find the available IRQ but don't know how to decide the I/O address so just use first one on manual. the protocol is MS NetBEUI which I think should be general and good.
now the problem is when the window starts it always tells that " MS&NE2clone adapter is not responding..." and the error when"loading protocol number 0..." happens, something like that, where should i start to check the problem?i have no idea. from the floppy with the card i tried to install the driver from it but it always said that i need to install a network driver under windows first then i can install from that floppy, which i never know what this means, because it thinks there is no driver file on HD which is not true.i setup networking setting first then trying to install that floppy...
BTW, there are 2 data acquisition board inside, one use IRQ 10, A00H, another with jumper setting at I/O 320h, unknown IRQ(haven't use it yet)

Go to the network installation. Remove your adapter, then choose "Add"
Pick the "adapter not listed" and point to the floppy drive where you'll put your drivers' floppy. Thta'll install the correct drivers.
Let me know if this doesn't soolve the problem

thanks, it's solved. i found that just change the setting of the card of working mode from "auto" to NE2000 then it works, i forgot to keep in mind that todays card mostly have PnP mode so i didn't disable it, the result is that the card always reset itself to IRQ 10 and not working.

well, at the beginning i also think about adding adapter and it's necessary to have netBEUI to work so i think your answer is at least acceptable on the direction to solve it. and of course, if you don't like it i can reject it.
