Hi everyone, new to the forum but I've been building PCs for almost 3 decades. I've run into a frustrating problem I've not experienced before and thought I'd ask you guys.
I cannot seem to get any NIC to work with this Micronics M5Pi-10R motherboard, despite the fact that I think I had it working previously. I've tried:
3COM 3c905-TX PCI, 3c905B-TX PCI, and 3c509-TX ISA
DLink 530TX+ PCI
I'm currently running Windows NT 3.51 on it, but I've also tried NT 4 Workstation, DOS/Win3x, and Win9x. I'm using 3COM drivers off the EtherDisk version 5.4 for the two 3COM PCI cards, and a driver disk that came with the 3COM ISA card. The DLink is also using a driver disk that came with it.
I suspect it may be a BIOS compatibility issue with the PCI cards, but cannot find a BIOS update for this system. Has anyone else come across such a configuration? Let me know if you need more details. Thanks!
