The network has 2 working dlink DFE-530TX cards. One client has an intermittent run time error. The network card, cable, and internal cable to the disk drive have been replaced and the error still exists. A replacement hard drive has been successfully formatted and win98 has been installed. Unfortunately, the network card no longer works on this client. It appears that the driver installed from the win98 cd is not working. The install disk is nowhere to be found.

Driver 530_0615.exe was downloaded from drivers.com to a floppy. :tazz: What is the next step? ;) Does this go into \windows\system? :thumbsup: Then, run it? :cheers: Are other files necessary?

After redownloading to a floppy from a dlink site, the "have disk" option finally ran successfully. The client's network options now match the server's options. However, the network still does not work. Further research indicates that the dlink DFE-530TX has problems running with win98. The dlink cards that run on this system are running with win95. It looks like it's time to try a different vendor.

Note: A linksys net card was purchased recently and seems to work well on win98. However, we will look at yet another vendor due to the slow and unfriendly rebate department at linksys.
