Look a the ethernet controller and tell us the name or number that is on it. It will be the square processor about an inch by an inch or if there is a mac address or node address include this also and we will track down a driver for you.

Look at the metal "spine" (where the connector to Ethernet plug in)
and tell us all the letters/digits stamped into the metal.

The only way that I can think of is to physically pull out the card and look for any labels or stampings with a serial number or a company name.

AZSURE, what nice "etiquette" you do *NOT* have!!

You seem to have copied the "suggestions" which were submitted,
and posted them as an "answer".

EEEE, you should not "accept" the "plagarized" answer.

OK, the FCCID is EJMNPDSPD035, text/num stamped on the metal spine are "LINK" beside LED, "ACT" beside LED, "100TX" beside LED, "DATA" beside RJ-45 port and the down of the spine is a number 5342, there are two square processors on it, the first one stamped with the text

"S82557"
"L7053245"
"SL24Z"
"i © 1989 1995"

the second one is stamped with the text "S8255S"
                           "L7081944"
                           "intel © 1996"

Hope you can find it out for me....thanks help

The fcc # should be 17 characters
FCC ID Number
Enter the FCC ID number located on your card or peripheral to obtain
company information. The first 3 characters are the company code, the next 14 are the product code.

I have not been able to find it as of yet I will continue to look.

According to the page at:

 http://www.vinca.com/support/ntlink.html

the FCC ID: EJMNPDSPD035

describes the "Intel EtherExpress Pro 100B card".

So, browse around on http://WWW.INTEL.COM
to find the appropriate driver.

> may i know how you did that ?

Using the string you provided as the 'FCC-ID',
I used http;//WWW.ALTAVISTA.DIGITAL.COM
to search on that string, and looked at the web pages
which contained that string, and which hinted that it
was an INTEL card.  Then, going to INTEL's web-site,
and using the other information you provided,
I found the specific page on INTEL's web-server.

> is it any site can do a FCCID or barcode reference ?

Not that I know of.

Please "grade" the "proposed-answer", if the information
provided has been correct.

Use whatever information _IS_ available to you.

If you have another "unidentified" card,
please open another question on Experts Exchange.
