PCMCIA Card on old laptop

Hey everyone,

I got a very old laptop here, with 8mb RAM and a Cyrix processor - But it indeed has PCMCIA network card installed, this is picked up by the PCMCIA and I can stop / start the card - Although when I try to plug it into the network no status light comes on the router?

Theres a few drivers missing,

The network card is picked up as a D-Link DE650 Ethernet Card PCMCIA - When I go into its properties it says "No driver files are required or have been loaded for this device" < Does this mean I do or don't require a driver? I can fully configure the TCP/IP settings in Network properties and the card is present in the protocol list.

Also, there is definatley a driver missing for PCMCIA Card Services as Windows 95 isn't recognising it, I need a driver for this also - I think because this drive is missing the PCMCIA card isn't online and showing power on the router?

Any ideas, I'm a bit lost when it comes to PCMCIA cards...

I just need this thing to be able to view the network, the TCP/IP and Gateway settings are all correct - Its just not showing the laptop is online on the router

Help please :tazz:
