Getting 10/100 network card recognised in Windows

  Echo1 14:54 11 Feb 2004

I have just bought a 10/100 Ethernet network card so I can use my Broad Band modem.

Thing is, Windows '98 SE wont install it. It's a standard PCI card, I know it works but there seems to be no drivers on the Windows disc.

What do I need to do?

I'm obviously a newbie at this, so any help would be appreciated.

Does the card have a FCC ID on it? If so you can use this to locate drivers.

When you fitted it and rebooted the computer did it come up with the "found new hardware" wizard?

Didn't the card come with drivers on a disc

Thanks for the help, but I'm no where nearer sorting it out.

It didn't come with any driver disc and I don't see a name on it. I bought it off ebay for a couple of quid. And a network adapter is found when booted up, but I can't install without knowing its manugacturer.

There's a serial number: 0010A709C45B ND012C 110

On the chip (RMC) it says: RTL8139C 0C211Q1 108B Taiwan.

I'm guessing non of the above info is of any use.
