I have a computer running NT4.0 with award bios 4.01g. I can't get the machine to find the NIC. I got the latest drivers from 3com. Still no luck. Any help

You will need to manually install the NIC in Nt,it does not want to recognize Plug-N-Play,Open the Control panel and choose the Add Hardware icon follow the onscreen instructions to maually install the card and drivers.

The first answer was half right. NT will not always find a card. In order to install the NIC manually. Open your Control Panel, open the Network icon and click on the Adapters tab. Click on Add and follow the prompts from there using the driversyou downloaded.

Hope this helps.

I have tried 6 different nic cards in both PCI & ISA cards from the Adapters panel all to no effect. I have all the current drivers for all my Nic cards

Or, try putting the card in another slot in the motherboard. Or clean up the slot with a small brush, sometimes dust can make hardware cannot be detected.
