generic network driver?

The harddrive on my friend's laptop went bad and was replaced. As part of a complete reinstallation of Win95, he is now at the point where he needs a driver for his PCMCIA ethernet adaptor card. It's a Info Express model, and he doesn't have the driver diskette, nor can he find a reference to it on the web.

Is there such a thing as a generic driver for this, or one, such as 3Com, that is commonly emulated?

To install the card, does he need to install the Win95 generic PCMCIA driver first, then the network driver?

I'm looking for an answer that will provide info leading to a successful installation of this card.

Drivers can be downloaded from their web site or in most cases the generic driver would be "NE2000" found under "Adapters->Microsoft".

Goto 3com web site you can down load the driver from them,  make sure you know which card you got, read the label on the card it should tell you which one, 3c589, or 3c589c or 3c589d.  Or Post the modul number I may have the driver.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

That driver can be downloaded at:

By the way, in my previous comment, Microsofts NE2000 drive should also work.

Please reject proposed answer, so I can submit an answer.
