Encore ENL-832 Ethernet Card

The ENL832 is apparently made by a company named Encore. The driver disk I received (quite a few years ago) had drivers for Win95, Win98, and WinNT, but there was a problem with the Win98 drivers in that file ax88140.sys is required (apparently) for both Win95 and Win98, but was only in the Win95 directory, so, during install I had to tell Win98 to look in the Win95 directory to find the ax88140.sys file.

Even so, I'm not sure that worked—after installation I couldn't ping anybody (I might have had some other problem, including with my hub (which I don't normally use as I use coax for most of my network). When I couldn't ping anybody, I switched NIC cards (to a 3Com 3C509B)—Win98 found it and configured it during bootup, and, by then I had connected this machine directly to the Westell Versalink 327W that I was trying to test / configure and I could connect to it just fine. Someday I might retry the ENL832 NIC.
