How do I identify my EtherExpress adapter, and where do I get drivers for it?
Check the Network Adapter & Driver Identification Guide. This will instruct you on how to identify your adapter and give you a link to the correct archive file to download. For the EtherExpress 32, you can select NE3200 from the list of adapters in most operating systems.
I get a Window* 95 error message: "Unable to browse the network. The network is not accessible."
Windows* 95 install - The system cannot find some files
During the installation of any device, Windows* 95 will ask for the location of the associated files. Sometimes the needed files are included on the Windows 95 distribution media, sometimes they are included with the device and/or third party add-ons.
If, during the installation of an Intel adapter, the Windows* 95 installation procedure cannot find a file at the requested location, try pointing it to the root directory of the adapter's installation diskette (e.g., A:\). If that fails, try pointing it to the NDIS directory on the diskette (e.g., A:\NDIS) then the NT directory, then the Win95 directory. If that fails, it may be looking for a Windows 95 file. These are generally located in the Win95 directory of your Windows 95 CD or, if pre-installed on your system, in the C:\WINDOWS\OPTIONS\CABS directory of your hard drive. If the Novell IntranetWare* Client is installed on your system, try pointing it to the diskettes or directories containing those source files. DO NOT skip any files.If the installation procedure still cannot find the needed files, try canceling the installation and insure that your CD-ROM drive is working. Search the source media for the Windows 95 cabinet files. These files have the name WIN95_XX.CAB where XX is a 2 digit number.
Where can I get drivers for my EtherExpress adapter for Macintosh* or Alpha* computers?
Intel network adapter drivers are designed for computers based on Intel architecture. For computers based on other architecture types, consult your system vendor for a listing of supported network adapter cards.
How do I install Window* 95 on a client from a server?
When installing Windows 95 to a client from a server, a proper push install procedure should be performed. Consult your Windows 95 Resource Kit for instructions.
Do not install real mode DOS ODI or NDIS drivers, connect to the server and execute the setup program. Windows 95 will detect the existing drivers and install using them instead of the proper enhanced mode Windows 95 drivers. As a simple alternative, consider copying the installation files from the server to the local hard drive. Then reboot the system without the drivers loaded and run the installation from the hard drive.
