Usually it's the motherboard driver package or the network card drivers. I don't expect such on the Microsoft CD so seek those out and install.
I have some 10BT version of said Xircom and can assure you that Windows 98 and SE didn't have the drivers on the Microsoft CD.
Hi I have a old sony vaio with windows 98 on it. everything works fine but the laptop can't detect my network card. I have a Xicom Realport Ethernet 10/100+modem 56 REM56G. It's old and out dated but I can't get a LAN connection. I formated a while ago wiht windows 2000 and that o/s detected the ethernet card and i was able to connect on line automatically. But windows 2000 doesn't work that well on my laptop being on mmx technology, so I formated again with windows98. I don't know how to get it to detect the card so i can get online....please help...ask some more questions of u need them to help me out...thanks....
