If you installed the network card already & you are currently running Win 2000 you can see if windows has a driver for your card. Open device manager. Scroll down to network adapters. Right click on network adapters left click scan for hardware changes or you should have a yellow ! point for a PCI device. Right click on that & left click install. What you want is windows 2000's Mfg's list of nic cards. You might find the brand & model no# listed. You can also use windows update. Under hardware you will most likely see your nic card & allow you to install it's driver. If you post the brand & model no# I'll find the driver for you.
All drivers for HP Compaq D220M, HP Compaq d220 Microtower Desktop PC & Windows 2000 drivers are listed below at the link;

I've downloaded the Realtech driver version 6.110 but it won't work after installing it. I contacted Asus tech support but they said Windows 2008 Server isn't supported on this box.


You might just need another driver either a lesser model no or a later model ethernet driver no.

tick in the box for windows software or all software box

IE: Motherboard name wireless or Ethernet driver
you might have to try a few times to get it right

I want to run Win Server 2008 Enterprise edition on Dell Optiplex 360. I need the drivers for: NIC, Audio, Video. Thank you


Hello,

Verify that your hardware is compatiable to the Server NOC. (Most are 64-bit software which require 64-bit compatiable software. When you place the server dvd/cd in the 1st time, it will check your system to make sure it meets the minimum requirments for install. If you already have the server os installed, You have 2 chioces: 1. Microsoft Server drivers (Microsoft support) or 2: Download each vendor's drive to your system or portiable drive and install as the server os is installing. (it will ask for 3rd party drivers at the start of install.

Good Luck

On a Gateway GT5028 - appears the ethernet card was damaged by power surge. We installed a new 10/100 NIC card but Gateway reports it has a problem. Any ideas? Do I need to disable the onboard NIC card...


No you do not need to disable the onboard Network Interface Card. I would suggest to first start by inserting the new NIC card in a dif. Spot.
If you do not have any other spots to insert it, i would double check to make sure you have the correct driver for the correct operating system that you are running, If you know the model # of your nic card i could gladly get you the correct driver. Let me know if this helps. Thanks

Fujitsu Siemens GA-8ISXT-FS, can I add a 2nd ethernet card / NIC


The P/N GA-BISXT-FS is a Gigabyte mother board which has 5 availble PCI slots.
If you don't see any open slots, chances are that all 5 of the slots are already in use.
Take a look and maybe you can pull out of the cards you don't need and install the 2nd NIC card.
Good Luck and let us know how it works.

I have a Gateway E1600-SE with Windows 98 OEM


You will need a driver for your specific NIC (Network Interface Card) that will run on Windows 98 second edition (this is important. If you dont have 2nd edition, you will need to find it somewhere. I would suggest Craigs List or e-bay). Your Default adapter is unknown to me so I cannot send you to a manufacturer site. However, that information and driver should be available at www.gateway.com/support as well as the NIC manufacturer.

Don't know what the device is? Check your Device Manager in "My Computer" / properties - select device manager

Another avenue you can travel is go for a visit at www.pcpitstop.com and have a free test performed. Of course to do this, you have to have a NIC with the proper driver already! I mention this because after you get this NIC going, you can visit the site and they will tell you whether you have the most current driver for your system or not.

I hope I have helped you with your trouble this evening.

Thank you for considering FixYa.com

Network card not detecting in RHEL4 & 5


The solution proposed by user 'Solutions58' seems to be about windows box since he is talking about 'Device Manager'
RHEL4 or 5 detect compatible NIC cards during boot up process automatically. Sometimes NIC may be detected but may not work properly due to lack of proper driver (a.k.a Module - in Linux culture).
Do this -
1. First find out from HP's web site if NIC for your model has Linux support. You can also use Google to find appropriate driver for your NIC. If yes then you need to follow instructions that are provided in the INSATLL file that comes bundled with the driver.
2. Otherwise buy a $10 NIC card which has Linux support. Disable your onboard NIC through your computer's BIOS and boot it. Linux should detect your NIC right away.
3. Following command can help you in your quest
As root
# dmesg | grep eth (Will show your detected NIC)
# service network status (Will also show configured & active devices)
# ifconfig -a (Will also show your network devices and related info)
# system-config-network (will let you configure your NIC via GUI)
(This would be your best choice)
# system-config-newtowk-tui (Will give you a text base interface to configure your NIC)

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00840496.pdf

if your system is still within warranty I would think twice about opening the case yourself to installing a new network card.. you will be voiding your warranty.. so think about it

another thing i would try before deciding on going for another network card is to check your onboard network adapter has updated drivers... or you may want to reinstall the drivers for that adapter.. either one of those may probably fix your issue assuming is not a hardware failing given that your system may not be that old.... make sure you check the windows update and look for any new hardware driver for your network adapter that may be avaliable through windows update.

before you install your new network pci card you may have/want to disable the one on board going into your bios for that. so to ensure there's no resource conflicts when installing the driver for your new card (it may not be a problem even if you don't but if you run into problems while installing the new card consider this suggestion)

2 ethernet cards can't work together


If in your network you are connecting computers directly to a PC thru multiple nics and not a router or hub leaving one as server and the others as clients and that server is NT 4,0

NT 4,0 can not auto configure the cat5 cable and would need at least 1 cable to be a cross-over and not a patch.
