My network adaptador isnot detected, i have a old pc and i want to uses it for play games in a LAN but the OS does not found de network adaptador What can i do?
My pc is an old IBM 300PL 6862-85u-66, it has a RJ 45 port and the user guide say that has a network adaptador Intel Ether Express 100/B , and i can see the network suport is habilitaded in the BIOS but the network adaptador is inhabilitaded, addicionally it has Wake on LAN...do you think is necesary to buy a network adaptador? I try dowload and install the drivers from intel but nothing works

Allo Jupiter and welcome to the Lockergnome Forum

Coooo, that IS an old PC Wink

Is it using Windows3.11, Windows95 or windows98??? You could try downloading the networking drivers from IBM, an see if that helps (approximately half-way down the page, in the section marked 'Networking').

I don't think you'll be able to play many modern games on that PC though, the 350MHz processor, along with 4Mb S3 Trio 3D graphics is only suitable for old games Sad.

Right click My Computer, select properties then open the Device manager. Can you see your NIC (network interface card) listed? Is there a yellow ! or a red X by it? If it isn't listed at all, close out all the device manager boxes, make sure a cable is plugged into the NIC.
Do you have an RJ45 cable plugged into the NIC? Can you see a light on the connection?

If so, open Control Panel, add new hardware and select to add the NIC. Let the computer search for the drivers on C:\ if the NIC came with the computer when purchased. If it didn't, did you get a CD with the card? According to werebo's link to IBM, the NIC should either be an etherjet or a 3Com. Since you said it is an intel it was probably added on and not original to the computer.

Also, do you have one or two RJ45 ports? I ask because on one computer, I have two. One of them works and the other doesn't. I'm not sure if a 2nd card was added because the first did not work - which might also be the case with your computer.

Hello,

Have you tried downloading the device driver software for the Intel EtherExpress PRO 100B from this page on Intel's support web site and installing the device drivers? If so, did that work?

Regards,

Hello,

Just to verify, you downloaded and tried installing the latest device drivers from Intel's web site, and not ones that came with the computer on a floppy diskette or CD, correct?

Hello,

Have you verified that your IBM PC 300L does have an Intel EtherExpress 100/B network adapter in it? I checked IBM's web site, and it says they shipped with either an IBM EtherJet or 3Com 3C90x network adapter. If I recall correctly, IBM EtherJet adapters were OEM versions of Intel's EtherExpress ones, but required specific device drivers from IBM to operate correctly. As Werebo suggested, you might want to try installing the EtherJet 10/100 WOL driver for IBM PC 300PL computers and see if that works. Failing that, you could try installing a different network interface in a free PCI expansion slot, then connect the computer and visit the Windows Update site and see if it can download a device driver for the onboard NIC.

WHOOOOO NELLLLY!!!!!

Did MY eyes Deceive me ??? or did HE just say HE installed XP on this OLD machine ???

DUDE........ IF you tried to INSTALL XP on THAT computer, IT is going TO go "belly UP" in the FIRST place, and SECOND place, the DRIVERS will possibly conflict with anything XP might want....... also THE card may be toooo old for XP to detect off hand .... YOU will NEED the XP drivers for it ...... and MANUALLY have XP search FOR new hardware.

GRANTED............. thats IF this EVEN works...... DUE to the HIGH demands of XP.

Along that same thought..... (never put XP on an old PC that wasn't designed for it)

When I decided to upgrade to XP from Win-98/SE, oh so many years ago now, I thought I was running a pretty well state of the art PC.
Well, XP didn't think so. It flatly refused to accept my sound card, modem and scanner. I wound up replacing all three.
I had new sound cards and modems on the shelf (I'm in the computer business) but I did have to go out and buy a new scanner that was XP compatible.
I would have really been SOL if XP had decided it didn't like my motherboard. Wink

Buy yourself a new NIC card that's compatible with XP. I regularly get them for under $10 usd.
I'm currently using the "Genica" nic, with the "Realtec" chip set.

Happy Shopping!

well i install Xp in my Pc almost 4 years ago this is my first problem, and the Xp funtion is pretty good, at the begining was slow, but I got 256 Mb of ram, and performance is excelent of course i donĀ“t install a lot of programs, only the most needed, I know that Xp was not designed for this kind of Pc but I prefer deal with some xp problems rather than use old operative sistem wish usually give you a lot of compatibility problems....but you never know, i will buy a new NIC only for 4 US $, my old NIC is a lost cause. Thanks
