Have tryed to install this NIC card many times using conflicting instructions from Micro soft and D-Link. Using Win98.

Don't know about the Toshiba but on my IBM T20 I needed to use the IBM setup utilities to 'enable' the PCMCIA slots before the system would recognise a card. Straight sailing after that.

I assume Win98 hasn't recognised new hardware PNP so you may have to use Control Panel to force a hardware refresh. If that doesn't work use Add Hardware/have disk and install your drivers that way.

You may need to run some pcmcia card managment software to get it all happening.
Also check in settings that it can see the slots .
Maybe the slots are not activated.

Thanks for the help, I found a Compaq 32 bit PCMCIA Ehternet card for $15.00 US. Installed it and adjusted setting as pointed out in responces. Now up and running in Maryland, using Garmin Legend GPS along with laptop. Can't wait to go to the shore and scout some 4x4 areas.
