Question about IBM NetVista A40 PC Desktop

1 Answer

2 ethernet cards can't work together

I'm using windows NT 4.0.
1 nic is Intel Pro/100 VE Desktop connection which has extension PCI slot, the other one is IBM 10/100 EtherJet PCI Management Adapter which plug in the extension PCI slot. I install the Intel pro/100 drivers, both nics can be seen in the network. But only IBM one can connect to other PC.
After I disable IBM one, the Intel one works.
If I delete IBM adapter and then install a IBM driver, the Intel one works while the IBM one doesn't.
If I disable the Intel one, the IBM one works again.
Seems they just could't work together.
I tried in windows XP, there is no that problem. The 2 nics can work fine.
I appreciate if someone could help me!

    Thanks for response.
    I use the switch and hubs in the network to connect other PCs. For other PCs like Dell and IBM 300GL with NT4.0 and 2 nics can work fine. But with the this IBM Netvista with the intel nic plus IBM nic on the extension PCI slot could not work together. And there is no PCI slot to put a nic on the motherboard directly.

    The ip address isn't conflict. I use 2 different ip address in same subnet. I also checked the interrupt conflict which is ok.
    Thanks!

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.

    Have you checked the ip address and make sure there is not a conflict that way?

Compaq Presario 5220 Desktop Windows 98 internet: Dial-up Can a DSL card be installed or would I need to go with a wireless USB? And would wireless USB work on Win98?


You can install a network card inside the computer. You will need a PCI or an ISA card. (I know PCI network cards are easy to find at most of the computer shops.) See this site for how to install a card: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bph07111&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=93139 . However you should open your computer and check the space between the devices in the slots in the computer. There is an AGP slot with a video graphics card, 1 PCI/ISA slot with a modem (default specs), one free ISA slot and one free PCI slot. However depending on the graphics card one of these slots may be blocked by the card. You'll either need to get a card that fits the available slot or remove the modem and use that slot.

Here are some PCI 10/100 network cards: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?CatId=587&name=10-100%20Ethernet%20PCI/ISA . Most of these are compatible with Win98. I'm not sure if there are any gigabit NIC with Win98 drivers.

Wired and wireless USB NIC adapters exist. However, you will be limited to the USB speed. If you have USB 1.1, that will be really slow. Most likely your computer will require a reboot anytime the connection is lost.

I hope this helps.

(who recently removed an internal modem to put in a PCI gigabit card in a newer desktop than yours. The procedure was straightforward and improved network performance in the household immensely. The failing on-board NIC was tying up the router for everyone.)

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.

My computer wont connect to the internet i need a lan card how do i get this


Lan Card commonly called the NIC is installed on most of the computer. You might have one but may be you need the drivers to get it work. Let me know what is the model of you computer. If you do not have the NIC card you can buy either the PCI Network card or also you can find the USB Network card for you to be able to connect to the Internet.

What kind of mobo does this Toshiba V3100 desktop machine have? And what kind of NIC do I need? Besides the origanal RJ 11 NIC that came w/it?


Hello,

Here is a pdf file showing the specs of your computer:

http://www.bjassociates.com/toshiba_v3100.pdf

The MB is a micro ATX board with 3 PCI expansion slots. The one slot appears to have had a NIC card to which you refer. You would have to obtain a PCI Ethernet card (NIC).

Thanks for using Fixya.

I am not able to connect to internet because i don't have ethernet controller therefore i need ethernet controller


The ethernet controller is a hardware device either as part of the motherboard -where you will have an RJ45 connector visible to you at the outside of the case -or as a Network Interface Card (NIC) which would be installed as a PCI card which has it's own RJ45 connector.
If yours is a driver problem you will need to specify which brand/model computer or NIC you have for a link to that manufacturer to download drivers from that site. If you encounter problems or have more specific information please post again here. Steve Medley
