Does anyone know if " Group-tek " has merged into another company or not?
Its not even listed as a company in Drivers guide.

What OS?

Have you tried assigning a generic driver via the windows hardware wizard?

Other then that, a "good-enough" 10/100 network card can probally be purchased new from any number of places for under $10 bucks, certainly available in the $12 to $15 range, is it worth shagging around over some unkown item purchased va a comp fair?

Group-tel also look to go by the name Cnet (infact it looks like they always go by that name, and Group-tek is a red-herring)

http://www.cnet.com.tw/


Or, I could be way off....

Group-tek is just a chip manufacturer while cnet technology seems to be the actual name it's marketed as

I have tried everything whilst trying to instal the card, with no sucess, i was hoping i could just install it as i am 35 klm from my nearest PC shop, but its giving me the ****s, so i will probably go for a drive.
thanks for your help.

A quick way to identify hardware is to plug it in, and boot a Linux Live CD version. Knoppix is very good at this. Then dmesg | grep network ...

don't feel bad tontoe. i've just come across someone who'e just paid $300 for an old 486 at a garage sale - they thought it was a bargain, because it came with speakers & told it was broadband ready.
