PC with
lieven Dec-12-01 11:40 PM
I will build a network at home between 2 PC's in order to share the printer, the scanner and the internet. The second PC with windows 2000 professional recognises without a problem the 3Com ethernet-card. On the first PC with "windows me" the 3Com ethernet-card is well inserted and the power is on it because the yellow light on it is burning.
When following the next steps :
start\settings\configuration screen\network\the new installed networkcard is not in the list of network-devices.
What could be the reason of this ? Perhaps an IRQ-conflict with the inbel-adapter for the internet ?
Or maybe a "windows me"-bug ?
Thanks for your help,
Lieven

Perhaps... What do you see in Start, Settings, Control Panel, System, Device Manager? Remove any network adapters and reboot. Try another PCI slot. Try the other board. Larry
