Network Anywhere Card Not Working

Hey All -

I just bought a new Network Anywhere NP100 card (the disk says NT100, so I don't know which to believe), and I can't get it to work.  It is a PCMCIA card for a laptop running Windows 98 SE.  I have tried re-installing it, and to no avail.  I have tried reinstalling all the protocols, etc... and getting new drivers, but again to no avail.  

Also - It has lights on the pigtail corresponding to:

ACT - IF the light blinks, the card is detecting network activity.
LINK - If steady, the card is connected, but if blinking it is receiving network packets.
10/100 - If steady, in 100 Mbps mode

The ACT light is flashing, but the others are steady.  

Any help you can give would be appreciated.

Are you connecting the NIC to a switch/hub or directly to another pc using a crossover cable?

What network protocals are you using?

I am connecting to a switch/hub, and I know that the cable is correctly wired, as I am using it with my desktop right now.  

I am using TCP/IP protocol, IPX/SPX, and NetBEUI.  I will be communicating with Client for MS Networks, and MS File/Print Sharing, all of which are installed.

kevinpbCommented:
yes, for the win98 machine
but use ipconfig/all if the other machine is win nt,2k or XP

look for the ip address and subnet mask for both machines

Here is what I am trying to connect to:

A hub, which connects the rest of the computers in my fraternity, and then leads to a switch downstairs.  The switch has an outgoing connection to a DSL modem, serviced by USWest.  

I will get the ip configuration asap.

Here are the IP configurations, using WINIPCFG:
Please note that I only listed the items that had a value.  If the item didn't have a value, it is not listed here.

Node Type: Broadcast
PPP Adapter (No Other Options Available in this Drop Down List)

Adapter Address: XX-XX-XX... (If you need the MAC address, let me know, I didn't copy it down)

I.P. Address: 0.0.0.0
Subnet Mask: 0.0.0.0
DHCP: 255.255.255.255

Thanks -

That is your problem - the network card isnt installed properly.
Try removing it fully and re-install with latest drivers, if that doesn't work, try the card in a different machine. The card could be faulty...

Hmm... I have tried completely uninstalling, and reinstalling, but it somehow doesn't need a disk after Windows detects it.  I assume there are still residual driver files left over.  How can I delete/remove them completely?

Have you tried the card in a different machine?

TopaceAuthor Commented:
I don't have another laptop accessable to put it into.  I could try just taking it back to the store I bought it at, and seeing if they will give me another one that works.

Well it does appear to be a h/w issue. If you do bring it back, try getting a different make/model

Thanks for your help.  It was a h/w issue, and although it was a fight to bring it back to the retailer, I now have a working card.
