Hi Everyone:

        I am in the process of wrapping up some loose ends with a friend's older pc.  At this point, I am needing Windows 98 drivers for the following:  PCI Ethernet Controller... Davicom Semiconductor, Inc. DM9102/A/AF_DM9801 Fast Ethernet Adapter.  Any possible help on locating drivers for this NIC card will be appreciated.

        Thank you

Dear George,

1. First Choice Will Always Be The NIC Manufacturer. Since smiffy13 has already shown you the path, he is definitely the winner. I can only throw light on the way.

You have to download version dated 29-10-2002 which weighs around 27K.

I also remember having gone through the above websites. I had a ECS motherboard P6IWT-Me which had the above onboard options.

That's It....! Hope It Helps.....!

All The Best...!

Your machine is a K6, Celeron or PII/PIII ? I think that you own a PCCHIPS 7XX or 5XX motherboard (PCTEL MODEN AND DAVICOM ETHERNET)
