Hello, I have an IBM Thinkpad 380 that I am having trouble getting the networking to work.
It has the original installation of Win-95b and I don't want to reinstall the OS because it has allot of original setup programs and demo videos on it.
I made backups of all the IBM programs just in case I have to re-install but I really don't want to I just want to get networking to work.
It uses PCMCIA cards for ethernet adapters.
I have installed 3com and Linksys ethernet adapters however I can not get them to work.
I think I am missing some networking files.
When I open network neighborhood I see nothing, and an error message pops up reading "network un-available, Check network connection".
My hardware is good and network is good. I have tested on other laptops and it works.
My Ethernet drivers are good and the IBM 380 recognizes the Ethernet cards fine.
So the problem lies between the Win-95b networking files and the Ethernet adapter.
Does anyone know what files are required to get networking to work?
Or how can I reinstall the networking files in Win-95b ?
Also what PCMCIA bridge files are required ?
