20th Anniversary Ethernet Card ?

I have installed a PCI 100baseTX Ethernet card in my 20th Anniversary Mac.  Also, installed the FastEthernet software that came with it.  

When I choose AppleTalk .... the only options are Printer or Modem port ... when I choose TCP/IP the only options are "AOL, PPP, or AppleTalk (IRTalk)"

I can't seem to figure out where the problem lies ... because all the extensions appear to be where they should be and I have just re-installed MacOS 8.1.

Sorry guys ... the proposed fixes did NOT work.  

I zapped PRAM several times (could not find the "kuda button" so it is not something that is user accessible.  

I still do not have an "ethernet" option in the AppleTalk control panel (printer and modem only) and cannot set the IP addresses in TCP because AppleTalk is not active (it fails if I try to use either the Modem or Printer ports).  

Nothing is mentioned in any of the 8.1 or OT documentation that would help diagnose this one.

Any other ideas ... I am beginning to believe the card itself is not working properly.  The card is properly seated in the adapter.  MacOS 8.1 has been recently installed (including the 10/100 Base TX Ethernet extension.  Nothing seems to work.

I still think it's the kuda button look around it will be small and look insignificant. this button resets the motherboard, you use it when you add ram or graphics cards try to find it again and see if something like techtool reconizes that you have a cad in the slot

uhm....adding ram and grafx cards does NOT require a motherboard reset..heh..motherboards should only be reset under extreme cases.

I will look again for the button but could not find it the first time.  perhaps it is under the card so I may have to route around a bit.

Will let you know  -- thanks for the patience.

Nope ... still struggling.  Have reinstalled MacOS 8.1, updated the driver for the card, checked all the wiring, verified the hub is AppleTalk compatible, and danced around the Mac three times to the left chanting the right mantra's ... and am out of ideas.

Do you have another machine that you can test the card in or will any software such as tech tool recognize it
