Hi all. I have made up a Win98 PC. I need an ethernet card driver. I don`t know what make of card it is.
All it has on it is: RU us. The "R" in the title is reversed and is incorporated with the "U". There is a number underneath it which is: "E154705. There are two other numbers.
DS/N TW-07C712-58910-14C-0685
DP/N 07C712/C/O TW/Rev A00. If anyone can help i would be grateful.
Best wishes: Johno J.

this may not work on 98 - been a while - but worth a try

How to identify hardware in Device Manager

right click on the device with a yellow!

from the menu choose
properties
Click on the Details Tab
Under the Property - drop down
Select hardware ids
Right click and select all
Then right click again and select copy
Copy and paste that information here

You should see a code similar to this

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_008A&SUBSYS_53058086&REV_34

please reply with the full code for your device(s)

The portion of the code highlighted in RED is the Vendor ID and the portion highlighted in GREEN is the Device ID. In this example:

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_008A&SUBSYS_53058086&REV_34

Vendor ID = 8086
Device ID = 008A

Post back those two numbers make sure we know which is vendor ID and which is device ID

These codes can be looked up at this site http://www.pcidatabase.com/

As an example the link for that database tells us that;
Vendor ID code 8086 is for this vendor - Intel Corporation
Device ID code 008A is for this device - Intel Centrino Wireless-N1030
