Unfortunately I dont have any ISA network cards
A lot of PCI cards can also work under DOS - if your 486 has PCI slots, of course.
In any event I'd recommend keeping an eye out for a good ISA NIC for old systems like this, the ubiquitous 3Com 3C509B/C cards are versatile, generally hassle-free and drivers are easy to find. But that's more a suggestion for the long term rather than one to help right now.
I have been looking around for an ISA NIC card. I have been seeing a few 3com 3C509B-C combo cards.. as well as 3Com 3C509B-TPO (which only has a RJ45 jack) is one or the other generally any better?
