Windows 98SE driver for Compaq NC3161 Fast Ethernet NIC ? The driver I have
at the moment is from 5-5-1999 !! Is it a Intel network adapter?

Is it working? If so, why find a new driver? Who cares how old it is.

If it ain't broke,.....

What makes you think there IS a newer version. Compaq is unlikely to have
updated a working driver.

1. Look at the chip on the card. If the chip is an Intel chip, write down its
model number, something like 82557, 82558, or 82559. Then go to the Intel web
site and download the drivers you need for the chip. This will work if the
NC3161 is a "rebadged" Intel card or a card made with an Intel chip.

2. If the chip is not Intel, go to the chip manufacturer's web site and download
the drivers you need for the model of chip on the card.

3. Submit your computer to the Windows update process. If Windows update has a
later driver, it will give you the option to install it.

4. At this late date, do not depend on HPaq for any Windows 98 support.

5. If you can't find drivers using any of the above, live with the one you have,
because it is probably the latest... Ben Myers
