Default Re: NIC card issue

Trying a different PCI slot is an idea, go ahead and try it. Not sure if it'll make a difference or not but it's worth a try. Also try cleaning off the connectors (just wipe them off) if they are dirty.

Connectors on the card itself? I though it wasn't a good idea to touch stuff like that? If it is, what do I use to clean it with?

thanks

Ha! Turns out I was right, I do have a LNE100TX ver 5.1!

I also had a D-Link DFE-530TX and, of course, the infamous Netgear FA311v1 (5 of them).

For a test I stuffed them all in my PC (just one of the FA311's) and watched to see if Vista could find drivers. It instantly found drivers for the D-Link DFE-530TX, found drivers for the Linksys via Windows Update, and couldn't find drivers at all for the FA311 (Netgear's provided drivers work, but you have to download them online). The internal Realtek chip was automatically detected upon install as well.

That means 4/4 working in Vista 32. I don't see why your LNE100TX isn't working in XP. Mine shows up as an "ADMtek AM983 based ethernet adapter" must use a generic driver from Windows Update. If you can find drivers for other cards based on this same chipset, those drivers should work as well (the network card is determined by its chipset, drivers for other boards with the same chipset will work).
