AFAIK RD9700 doesn't have drivers for Win9x, but the boxes of those cheap adapters tend to claim that they can support Win9x, which is not true.

Not sure about Realtek ones. I had such adapters before, but couldn't find working Win9x drivers for those.

You may consider looking for adapters from proper brands that use ASIX AX88772 which does have Win9x drivers, and are usually of better quality.

Additionally, unless USB is your only option for some reason, a cheap PCI or Cardbus (if laptop and compatible) could be an option.

Also, if you don't mind the lower performance of a USB 1.1 adapter, lots of branded options from the likes of Netgear (EA101) and others become available. Those often have Windows 9x drivers .

Unfortunately I don't have any free PCI slots. They are all busy.
The PC has both USB 1.1 and 2.0 ports because I have a USB 2.0 card.
So can you advise me specifically on suitable USB LAN adapters that support older Win95 and 98 operating systems? A thousand thanks.
Also because, I wrote to Kingleen, but they never replied. So no help from them.

What are your system specs? There's various reports on Vogons of USB2 cards slowing down systems, so you might be better off using a hub with your usb1 ports.

IBM 330 6577 - Intel Pentium 200MHz - 160MB Ram - Matrox G450 - 32GB CF adapter - Windows 98 SE.
Motherboard should be: Chipset Intel 82430HX (triton II) + PIIX3.

I searched on ebay by entering this information, but I can't find anything.
The only one I find is Realtek RTL8150, but they are PCI cards and I can't use them.

You can only be sure when you check it yourself 😀 There could be anything inside...

I think you can have more luck with those transparent-blue plugs, something like this: https://www.ebay.it/itm/151216106853
I remember that they appeared on the market at the earliest. However it is still unknown what is inside. It would be ideal if the seller could check the VID and PID for you.

I will write to more vendors and ask if they can check the ID Hardware.
Great suggestion.
This you gave me, it claims it supports from WinXP to Win10.

With some luck you can try this driver (after adding line with PID: 772B)
https://driverscollection.com/?file_cid=39450 … 8d5bec93ba116d1

Just duplicate this line (inside AX8872.inf):

%ax88772.DeviceDesc% = ax88772.Ndi,USB\VID_0B95&PID_7720

as

%ax88772.DeviceDesc% = ax88772.Ndi,USB\VID_0B95&PID_772B

1) VLSI SCAMP /286@20 /4MB /CL-GD5422 /CMI8330

While I waited, some help. I found these drivers, specific for Win98SE, if in case they don't work, I can try the ones you recommended.
https://us.driverscollection.com/?H=AX88772&B … ndows%2098%20SE
Now the installation went smoothly. As you can see from the photo, everything is recognized without errors and conflicts.
I must point out that the first time I plugged in the LAN cable, Windows crashed, forcing me to force the PC to shut down.
Once the PC is restarted, however, it does not connect.
So I went to manually enter the TCP / IP addresses for the card.
From the image, three appear, I have configured that of the device, however windows does not connect.
I have no idea how to set up the connection correctly.
Or, even if there were no problems, the drivers are not the right ones?

I made a video:

https://youtu.be/mc20JBYY-8Y

Actually, I didn't do anything, I just installed the drivers ....
If I do ipconfig/all the DHCP server sees it disabled.
I set the IPs manually and also the Gateway
But on DNS configuration, if I enter the google DNS, then it asks me for the HOST name and DOMAIN, I have no idea what to write there.
Even on WINS configuration I don't know what to set.

I have a DES-1005D switch, the IBM is connected to port 3 and it is on, it is on steady.
LAN cable checked on Windows 10, works great.
I moved the cable to part 2, same problem, the light comes on but is fixed.
I made another video, detailed.
In the Router's Event Log, it tells me that the PC has connected. Very strange since it does not browse the Internet.

By running the command:
I get:

ping 192.168.1.1
"request expired."
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 0, Lost, = 4 (100%, lost)

%ax88772.DeviceDesc% = ax88772.Ndi,USB\VID_0B95&PID_772B

I also tried to edit as you suggested. But it did not work. Asix Az88772B does not appear.
Maybe I haven't edited well.
I added the changes like so:

[ControlFlags]
ExcludeFromSelect = USB\VID_0B95&PID_7720, USB\VID_0B95&PID_772A, USB\VID_0B95&PID_772B

And then:

[USB]
%ax88772.DeviceDesc% = ax88772.Ndi,USB\VID_0B95&PID_7720
%ax88772A.DeviceDesc% = ax88772.Ndi,USB\VID_0B95&PID_772A
%ax88772A.DeviceDesc% = ax88772.Ndi,USB\VID_0B95&PID_772B

And:

[Strings]
ASIX = "ASIX"
ax88772.DiskName = "AX88772/AX88772A USB2.0 to Fast Ethernet Driver Diskette"
ax88772.DeviceDesc = "ASIX AX88772 USB2.0 to Fast Ethernet Adapter"
ax88772A.DeviceDesc = "ASIX AX88772A USB2.0 to Fast Ethernet Adapter"
ax88772.DispName = "ASIX AX88772/AX88772A USB2.0 to Fast Ethernet Adapter"
ax88772B.DeviceDesc = "ASIX AX88772B USB2.0 to Fast Ethernet Adapter"
ax88772.DispName = "ASIX AX88772/AX88772B USB2.0 to Fast Ethernet Adapter"

Eventually I installed Windows 2000. I hope to have fewer problems with the adapter.
However now I am focusing on other problems, which arose after its installation.
I have opened a discussion about it.

Adapter installed. BUT same problem, I don't understand. On windows 10 it works here not .... Yet it is configured correctly.
Note: d-link des 1005d Switch this time lights up, but with yellow light, not green. This means a connection of not 100 but 10Mbps.

Both devices are installed correctly. I used a program to identify the hardware.
The drivers are correct, both those of Nilox (manufacturer Asix Electronix) and Kingleen (manufacturer Kontron Industrial Computers Source).
The Switch reports that kingleen has a 10Mbps connection speed, while the Nilox goes at 100Mbps.
