NE2000 card...

I have a NE2000 compatible ethernet card and I tried installing it in my Win95 computer. I am running Win95 ver B on an AMD K6 233 with 64 meg of SDRAM. The card does not work. i put it in the computer, start her up, and it doesn't detect it to start off.. so i add new hardware and try auto-detect, which alsio fails, so then I add it manually as I don't have a driver disk for the card. After I add it manually, I restart the computer and it says that it is not functioning properly????? I have tried a lot of different irq's and i/o addresses in the resources tab, but to no avail. The card itself has no jumper's or settings on it at all???? I need help, can someone please direct me on where to (i) get a driver for it?
(ii) tell me what I might be doing wrong?
(iii) provide a solution???

Yes, it is a friends card, it still works in his computer, he lent it to me so I can network my 2 comps together. Actually he lent me two, and neither of them work in my machines, but both work in his....

Did you try ALL IRQ# and I/O Range combinations?
If not, maybe you can first plug back the card in your friend's computer and check what setting he's using. And then try those settings with your computer.

He came around and tried the setting he uses in his computer, and it still didn't work, and the setting didn't have any conflicts? Maybe a need a driver for this card, is there a generic driver for a NE2000 compat. card other than the one in Win95, that actually helps set up the card??

nigem,
If it has no jumpers, then it is sofware-configurable.  If Win95 won't find it, then you're going to need the drivers that came with it.
Try looking for the manufacturer on the web.  I'd try:
http://www.windrivers.com/
and search for your network adapter manufacturer and model of card.
Good luck,
Ralph

I don't know the manufacturer of the card?? Is there any generic drivers for NE2000 cards??
I also don't know the model. My friend knows that it is just a NE2000 compatible card...

You mean he lost both disks that came with the cards?  Unfortunate.
I don't think you'll get it to work without the proprietary driver for that card.  
Sorry, if Win95 doesn't find it, then it can't be very "generic".

Oh well, your answer was to my quiestion, so you might as well have the points as I am nearly there in finding the drivers, I have to go home and look at the card for the model..

Thanks heaps...

Well that's what you get for buying cards from the local computer fair :)) we can't expect to get the driver, or you expect it on a copied disk so you lose it easier, I'll ask him if he could have a look...
