I brought to live old Siemens Nixdorf laptop with Windows 95.
I have bought new 3com PCMCIA Lan Card. Had some difficult time when installing it, but I did it. PCMCIA is installed and enabled. When I connect the ethernet cable to the card, yellow led (labeled 100 LAN) turns on.
I have added TCP/IP protocol and tried different options here:
- all default settings
- provided only my router address
- provided my router address and defined some static IP + netmask
So in Network config, I have:
- Client for Microsoft Networks
- PCMCIA network card
Router, ethernet cable and LAN are working correctly.
Not sure for 100% if PCMCIA Card is ok, but I have no reason to assume otherwise yet.
PCMCIA slots look fine. I have tested card using both. Also, the card is normally detected when inserted.
So my only guess, for now, is that something is wrong with the config.
Any help would be appreciated
