hey

eiher: how can you make Fujitsu Lifebook, win95, 3com etherlink III 3c589D-card  and TCP/IP work together ????

got 3 machines all similar except;
1; finds network and works nicely
2; doesn't give any message but doesn't either find network
3; gives message(freely)" any domain didn't regognize password. some of network resources may not be in use"

all came in "same shape" from ICL and No's 1 & 2 worked at the begining. had problems with No 3 and changed No 2 card to 3. not working, changed back and now 2 didn't work either.

or: can you clone 95's and if, how do you work?

The 589D has been NOTORIOUS in our company to cause trouble.. things to know:

1. The card can not use the same driver under Win95 as under Win95 OSR2

2. If the machines comes with any TranXit drivers install, remove them

3. The card does not like other hardware (for instance the Modem addon for Toshiba Machines)

So, make sure yo uhave the right driver for your windows version, and remove any tranxit drivers..
