Hi, Windows 95 doesn't recognize my network card, and I don't know what kind it is and I don't really feel like opening it again and destroy it (it's old and fragile). Is there any default driver for this?

Thanks, but I already tried that and it only told me that there was a pci slot controller
But I used AIDA32, not Everest (oups, I burned the wrong one on my CD). Does REALLY it makes a difference?

It may install OK with whatever standard network card driver is built into Win95

Try the D-Link DFE-530TXS driver (you can find it on driverguide). This driver somehow works on a lot of network cards
