Unable to install Integrated 82257 on IBM PC 300PL

I installed Windows 98 and Windows 95 on IBM Pentium 200 MMX 300 PL with Integrated Intel Ethernet LAN Card 82257 and unable to remove yellow sign on exclamation on it.

Though it is enable in BIOS...I also upgraded the Flash BIOS...it shows no IRQ conflict.....and says that the device is not attached or driver is completely installed.

Anyone can help me out.

I've got the exact same machine!!
it's running very happily on the drivers provided by ibm on the internal intel network card.

take a look at this site to download the drivers:

1) Get the newest drivers for this NIC card from Intel or the motherboard manufacturer ( Intel's will be newer ).
Also get any other newer drivers for this computer. Motherboard drivers, IDE, etc.

2) Remove it from the device manager and reboot.

3) Feed it the new drivers and the problem should be resolved.

I hope this helps !

Adnan,
Although I would try Sysexpert's advice first, I have had so much trouble with those same cards in Windows, that I stopped using them.  The best advice I can give is to start using another brand.  I've had pretty good luck with 3Com and Netgear.  That's my two cents.

I agree with e-r, I have wasted a lot of time trying to get that particular card to work with windows98 and NT along with other Intel cards . . . The Intel web site was no help and when I installed 3Com 3c509's they worked immediately.

Sorry I can't help.

Good luck.

Adnan,

There should be a diskette with the IBM machine for the integrated network card.

There is a utility on this diskette (I dont remember the name for it has been so long since I worked on such machines).

If you run that utility, then you can configure the network card, and you should be able to see all confilcts on the network card and resolve them.

Main problems were the memory addresses allocated for the use of the card.

I think this utility was under DOS, so, you might have to boot under DOS to run it. Although there is a Windows version.

When you run it, you should be able to change the memory addresses, IRQ, DMA.

Try it, and if you face any problems with that, just post it here.
