i have an older 233MHz computer that i recently reformatted and loaded with win2k from win98. everything went ok and all until i noticed that the network adapter is not working. well, windows says its working properly but it also continues to say cable disconnected when it isn't.
the card was working fine under win98 before the format, and although win2k recognized the correct card and installed the drivers something's off. the led's on the card are on while windows is booting, but about half way thru its load the led's on the NIC shut off, which makes me think its some kind of hardware conflict.
any thoughts or ideas?
