NIC Driver Needed

NIC: - WS-P220CT/S

This is a WiseCom NIC although a sticker on it says GVC.

The wisecom site has a page describing it but the driver page has no driver for it. &%#%!

399 BIG POINTS if I get this by 0900hrs PST. Nov. 12, 1999

If not, I will reduce it to 150 points because the urgency will be gone. (sort of).

Have you tried to use the WS-P200C/CT driver instead ?
Could be worth a try...

Or send an email to: webmaster@paylesscomputers.com

They helped me several times regarding drivers or other info.
The WS-P220CT is listed here:

Maybe they can send you the driver...

Try these 2 sites:

www.drivershq.com
www.windrivers.com

Mkae sure you have the card handy or write down its FCC code. The FCC code is used to identify more precisely who actually manufactured the card , so you can get an accurate driver.

simonet,

I hope you didn't get 495 "good answers" this way...

This is pretty annoying since you give just general information instead of trying to follow your suggested links first.
- drivershq points to the manufacturer's site
- windrivers points to the manufacturer's site, too

at the manufacturers site there's *no* driver for this model...so, correct me if I'm wrong, but I cannot see any help/advantage in your answer.

Sorry for being that "directly" but this "rude question blocking" happened too often to me now.

Regards

> mitrakis,
I called them up and within 2 minutes they sent me the entire install disk.
Thanks, I will only grade you a "C" because I actually had to do the grunt work. I would have given an "A" if you sent it to me.
Many thanks!

Post an answer for your points.

It's on you.
Anyway, glad I could help you.

I live in germany, so calling them would be qite expensive for me...furthermore it was 10:30am MET when I posted my comment.
Correct me if I'm wrong but in US it would be 4:30am; as you stated it's urgent it didn't make sense to me to wait until they wake up to get the files via email ;-))

Best regards

>rude question blocking

Why is it rude? If I believe that if  have a suggestion that can actually br an answer, I should, and I will, post it as such.

It has happened to me one time too many to have users delete "commented-only" questions after they got a comment that solved their problem.

Alex, I agree.
Though, I hope you can understand my objection since I tried to find a site skylab can *download* the driver (not a fifty-fifty chance to find it or not).
Imagine this kind of answer would be the standard answer for such questions, believe me, 50% of EE's answers would be "goto drivers.com" or "do a search on the web", wouldn't it.

I hope you don't misunderstand me...just had a "bad day" this day ;)
