Universal/Generic NIC Driver? Tags: NIC Boot Networking Last response: January 30, 2002 3:25 PM in Networking Share Anonymous January 28, 2002 7:16:36 AM Is there such a thing as a Generic or Universal NIC driver? My Peer to Peer LAN is composed of 5 computers, one being a laptop. I would from time to time like to access the network from a DOS boot disk to test whether it's connecting properly. How possible is this? I am using soley TCP/IP addresses, would prefer to have to make just the one boot disk if that is possible.
