TCP/IP connection

By lcuttino ·
I can't get my 3-com nic card to bind with TCP/IP when I install it (example:TCP/IP -> 3com nic card). Neither can I get a dial-up adaptor to show in the network component window.

OS is ?

NT you just right click network and go to properties - prompts to install networking components - select the ones you want and add adapter - if not listed

Other OS?

Ususally in win9x you just add the network adapter (network neighborhood) and follow the prompts - make sure there are no conflicts once the card has been installed - may conflict with display or sound card -depends on system and PCI/ISA setup in CMOS

Using OS/Win 98. Tried adding the adaptor in network neighborhood but card does not bind with TCP/IP.

We have seen this problem before. Have you tried to completely remove all the components in Network Neighborhood? Remove those along with the NIC, then Reboot, shutdown, Re-install the NIC, and go from there.

Removed all components in network neighborhood - took network card out of unit, rebooted, shutdown, reinstalled card in original and another PCI slot. Still will not bind with TCP/IP.

I don't know the os, so I'm going to assume 98, others will be similar. It sounds like you already removed everything and that is how u lost dial-up adapter, if not do that first. Then go to network properties and add adapter, under microsoft you can add the dial-up adapter back into system and then do the same with the 3-com card, except you should have the driver disk for it, so you click have disk.
Again, control panel>network>add>adapter, scroll down to microsoft and add dial up adapter.
good luck.
