I dont know what kind of nic this old box of mine has and I have no idea how to find out what it is or what brand it is. I used belarc advisor but I couldnt find anything it probably just looks for installed components. It used to work but I formated and did a dresh install of win98 but now my nic card doesnt work. Does anyone know if I can get a generic 10/100 driver for this nic card? I dont remember all that good but I think I might have seen its name in the device manager as Lynksys or d link but to be real Im not sure at all.

I have tried all the lynksys drivers available in win 98 (fresh install) . It is a pci adapted NIC. Should I just buy a new NIC card? I have mandrake 9.1 and I have never tried it should I use that OS instead?

Open the machine, pull it out and get the make and model of it. Then go to the manufacturers website and download the correct drivers.
