I just installed Windows 7 home premium. But unfortunately it didn't install any drivers for my PCI network card, a Linksys Line 100TX.
I tried for several hours finding drivers. But just can't find any. Computing used to be a lot simpler before Windows 7. Can somebody please help me out?

I do not know what your product line number is to point you in the right direction.

However I am linking you to the Cisco linksys support page for your product LNE100TX.

Click the download tab and in the drop down menu on this page choose your hardware version number. It would be either 1.0, 4.0 or 5.1

I do believe however that this NIC is rather old, its last driver update was in 2005 from what I can see, and the release notes mention Windows OSes up to Windows XP.

I do not even see Vista support listed, so you may be stuck with drivers for Windows 2000 or Windows XP.

Kind regards.

Bruce.

Thanks Bruce. I wasn't able to find any drivers for Windows 7. But someone suggested to use the drivers from XP. Since I had XP still on the same computer, (dual boot) I just copied all the drivers to a flash drive, and they worked just fine with Windows 7. Even the audio drivers work with Windows 7.

What spooked me was, when I ran the Windows cmpability program and Checked the Dell Website I got so many negative reports that indicated that Windows 7 would never run on this computer. But everything works just fine now.

Glad to see that the Windows XP drivers worked out for you.

Happy computing! :huh:
