    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
