open the computer and look at the card

check the actualchip manufacturer and serial numbers

It's unlikely that it's actually made my M$ and will probably be by realtek or someone similar

Then do a search for drivers for that chip

At a last resort try any 10/100 ethernet drivers, any basic set should work but without all the bells and whistles that M$ provide.

What OS are you using, If 98 onwards then the M$ standard ethernet drivers will work

Actually, his card is/was marketed by Microsoft, makes you glad they don't sell more hardware! :)

For the small price for a new NIC, I think I wouldn't bust my butt looking for the drivers for this thing, just pay $5 (including shipping) on Pricewatch and pick up a new 10/100 NIC with drivers.
