Turn on the power of your PC on to boot from Windows operating system. Windows will auto-detect your new adapter, and the "New Hardware Found" dialogue box will appear. Select "Driver from disk provided by hardware manufacturer" to install driver from the diskette that comes with your LAN adapter. 2. Insert the driver diskette into your floppy drive, and specify the path of the driver in the diskette(i.e. A:\) to copy the driver files to your system. 3. When the driver installation is completed, restart Windows. Note: 1. The NDIS2 and ODI drivers are only supported in Windows 95. 2. In Win2000, some applications may have connectivity problem, sometimes it's caused by Win2000 scatter-gather DMA compatibility issue. There is a parameter in driver set up page "Optimized for Performance", setting it to "disabled" can solve this problem.Download Driver Pack
