Hi

I just got a version of windows NT Server 4 and have setup. I was it as a web and VPN server but when i installed the network card things did not go smoothly. The IRQ adresses and I/O where conflicting and drivers were not installing. I have hopefully fixed everything up but I am still getting only the center light, link/act on my switch, and not getting a 10/100 or Full/half lights and its not working. (no servise paks, need ethernet for internet)

Need Quick Help

Windows NT Server 4.0 is notoriously bad with hardware.
What type of NIC are you using and do you have a driver disk for it??

The Motherboard does not have any PCI Slots and ISA Network cards are hard to come by, but ill try another manufacturer. More info: The card has both RJ-45 and colaxial ports. I have installed the drivers for NT 4. It seems to be a NE2000 or a NIC2000.

So the problem isn't so much with NT but with an old motherboard. Even Win9x would likely have the same problems. But you should still be able to get ISA network cards. I always keep a few around just in case.
