Try a different cable, or possibly the driver provided by 3Com itself: I’ve downloaded the driver that Windows Update provided, but all I’m getting is a “network cable is unplugged” message and no lights on the card. Have you tried just having XP attempt to repair the connection? It’s been too long for me to remember specifics, but the 3CTX has lots of cool extras like hardware network acceleration, which offloads work from the CPU that you should check to make sure it’s setup all right.

3Com Fast EtherLink 3C90x NIC Driver – TechSpot
Seems to get better or worse depending on the case you use. No registered users and 1 guest. Just out of curiosity, eindows makes you think your onboard NIC is bad?
Sun Aug 30, 6: Alternatively you can use the Net Diagnostics off the Tools 3c90t5x in msinfo Wrong driver I had one of these cards and the wrong driver would cause this issue. I’ve also tried downloading a driver from a 3Com support site now very outdatedbut the installation is either too old-school for me to figure out, or something’s going wrong.
3Com EtherLink 10/100 PCI NIC (3C905-TX) Drivers
Sun Aug 30, 4: Sun Aug 30, 7: You window also have to check PCI settings, but again, I don’t remember specifics with the card. I’d hazard a guess that the “cable unplugged” message you’re seeing is referring to the onboard NIC as well. Apparently my case is just a little too wide, because if I screw it in, the card isn’t fully seated.
Can you wiggle the cable and get it to work? Thanks for all the help guys!

Try bending the bracket slightly for a better fit. Sheep Rustlers in the sky! Sun Aug 30, 9: Have you tried just having XP attempt to repair the connection? It appears to be using the stock Microsoft drivers.
And that card is old enough that Windows really should have reasonable built-in drivers for it. Sun Aug 30, 1: I’m running an old 3CB card in my latest system using 3Com’s driversand it’s still going strong. If the wincows is functioning properly, make sure speeds, protocols, modes, etc.
Been using it in multiple systems for about a decade now Have you verified that the router or switch you’re plugging the other end of the cable into is OK? TheEmrys Minister of Gerbil Affairs.
