AMD PCnet ISA+ ether card
Posted on 1998-10-28
I recently purchased an AMD PCnet ISA+ (it's ISA of course) network card, but windows (95 AND 98) doesn't like it...
When i boot windows, it find it, but thinks it's a "Boca Research BOCANETlan" (?) card. i tried to delete it from the device list, then add the AMD driver, but the next time i boot it still tries to find the BOCANET card. so, then, i have two devices listed, and they both have a ! beside them.
if i don't add the AMD driver, the boca card still has a ! there. I made sure there are no IRQ conflicts, no DMA ones either. These are the systems i tested it on:
----- System 1 --------
Cyrix P150+ (120mhz)
windows 95 (non-OSR2x)
(no cards in it besides the PCnet ether)
-------- System 2 ---------
amd k6 200
3com EtherLink express 10baseT pci
windows 98 (not beta anything)
ess688 sound card
no floppy drive (?)
