PCMCIA Fast Ethernet card no driver

By sgod55 ·
I have a generic type fast ethernet card which I cannot find the driver for. I want to install it in a win98 laptop. Is there a generic driver in win98?

Alternatively I need to transfer data from the laptop to another pc, can that be done via a serial to serial cable within win98 without the use of software?

Your PCMCIA slot may need drivers before it will aknowledge/activate any PCMCIA card you want to use. When I had a Compaq laptop, this was called "Card Services" and my current ThinkPad calls it a "Card Bus Controller".

You may be able to find the OEM driver for the netcard if the has a FCC ID on it. Go to http://www.driverguide.com and search using any part number or simular on the card.
You can install and use Direct Cable Connection included with win98 then you can use a serial or parallel (laplink). For serial you need to make sure to set up the ports to match. Baud rate, parity etc.
