    Network Card

    Hey,

    i have a computer with win2k - i have put a network card in it..detected, installed etc

    i have the SAME (well, almost - different by a letter, but same 'series' of cards) network card running under windows xp

    i have tried everything but it refuses to detect it - it worked fine in the win2k pc

    any ideas?

    Is it listed in the device manager as an unknown device (I mean does it even know it is there?)

    XP is the problem

    Seriously though. Does the box of that NIC say it is XP compliant? Are there specifically XP drivers on the mfg's website? If you try to install the card manually, can you scroll through the list of NICs and find your specific card?

    Yes, perhaps you should go through the vendor's website and see if they have an XP specific driver for your nic.
