PC Line Network Card driver

  iscanut 10:36 30 Jun 2008

I have a PC Line network card ( from P C World ) but the driver and utils are on a floppy disk. Not much use to me as I do not have a floppy disk drive anymore. It is a PCL NW100B 10/100 network card. Can anyone help by advising if the drivers are available anywhere on the net. Don't want to go to PC World as I know that I will not get much from them ( at least, not the staff in my local store!).

Thanks, but could not find the PCL driver in the list. Will keep searching unless I can find someone with a disk drive so that I can get it onto a CD.

Can you read the chips on the card? One of them should have a number with something like RTL8139 on it. This tells you what driver you need.

Look at the chip on the card itself, SiS and Realtek provide chipsets for many of the `own brand` NICs

Have found a driver for this card on the Realtek site. Thanks for all your help.
