Hi socket9001,

When you are booting your computer you can see vendor/device number for all of your devices, write down numbers for net adapter (or thomething like that) and put it here.

Cheers!

i've tried them all :)
even before i asked the question
win98 wont install those drivers.....
when it detects the device and pops the 'add new hardware' dialog box i lets it serach for drivers and when it doesnt find any and ask for driver
i give it the path for the directory with the driver
it says it doesnt find a driver....

if  choose in the 'add new hardware' dialog box to do it the manual way,  select  network adapter and direct it to the driver, it almost works, it finds the driver  but then i get an error message that the installation failed with error code 1F6

any suggestions ?

Hi socket9001,

Eh, look at this:

If it is true, your card is dead.

This can be wrong, of course :)
Cheers!

if the driver is not certified by microsoft, it very well may skip right over the file...
you may want to try forcing windows by telling it what drive to install instead of trying to let windows do it automatically. i would try the drive from the manufacturers website above.

That network card probably uses a realtek chipset, the card is manufactured by MPX an Australian company that was bought out by belkin. Best suggestion is to find out what the chip is, it should be written on the card once you find out the chipset just search for the realtek drivers for the card.
