Windows 9x-right click my computer-properties-device manager

win2k and winxp-right click my computer-properties-hardware-device manager

In device manager look for network adapters.  It should have a brand name listed (not dial up, aol, microsoft vpn)

Or look on the back of the pc.  The network card will have a jack similar to a phone only bigger.  a phone jack (RJ11) has 4 pins, a network card (RJ45) has 8

If you dont see any of the above you may have a yellow question mark with communications device or lan adaptor. This means that you have a network card but dont have the drivers installed on your machine!
