Ethernet Card Driver
This guide covers how to install drivers for your ethernet card under Windows 95. If you are using NT or 98, these instructions may not work for you.
1) If Windows autodetected your ethernet card, one of two things will happen:
1. It detects the card, and installs the drivers from the Windows 95 cd. Windows will then install the drivers for your card, and then ask you to reboot. After you reboot, you can proceed to the TCP/IP Installation Guide.
2. It detects the card, but says that Windows does not contain the drivers it needs and asks you to insert a disk with the proper drivers. If it does this, insert the floppy disk or the cdrom that came with your ethernet card and select the directory the drivers are in. Windows will then install the drivers for your card, and then ask you to reboot. After you reboot, you can proceed to the TCP/IP Installation Guide.
2) If windows did not autodetect your ethernet card, the following should help you install your drivers.
1. If you added your ethernet card with the Add New Hardware wizard, as explained in the Ethernet Installation Guide, if windows has a driver for the card it will install that driver as in Case 1 above. If it does not have a driver, it will install the driver for your card as in Case 2 above.
2. If you added your ethernet card manually, you will either select your card from a list of drivers that windows has, or you can click the Have Disk button and select the appropriate driver for your card from the driver disk that was provided with the network card. Once the driver is installed, windows will reboot, and your card should function correctly.
Now that you have the drivers install for your card, you should proceed to the TCP/IP Installation Guide.
