Hi All, thanks in advance for the help!!
I am trying to replace a bad Planet pci network card with a new Trendnet pci network card on a windows nt 4.0 pc. Trendnet states the card should work with windows nt 4.0 and I located and installed the drivers from a winnt folder found on the included disk. With an ethernet cable plugged in both of the cards activity lights are blinking. I am unable to see anything related to my network. When I am in the Network (control panel -- network -- adapter) adapter settings I am able to find the trendnet pci card and see no reference to the old Planet card that use to be there.
Some of the different things I have seen on the web include different bindings?? I'm not sure I have those configured correctly. I have tried to figure those out and anything else listed in the tabs found in "Network" (in the control panel). I also read were I might need to go into the registry and remove all references to the old Planet card but that makes me nervous.
If it helps this windows nt pc is the brains to a Charmilles 390 wire edm (basically a different kind of cnc machine) machine. I have 2 other machines with working Intel Pro pci network cards in them. I have referred to both for those "binding" settings and other things but have had no luck. Also, I have tested my ethernet cable with other pcs and the cable is good. One other note, when I do ipconfig there is nothing listed for ethernet.
I think that is everything,
Thanks again for any help!
