Fabrizio:

What doesn't work? Does the driver install successfully? Is the device/any device flagged in Device Manager? Is the PC Card NIC indeed a Compaq Netelligent 10/100 card? Do the driversinstall OK and everything looks OK in Device Manager but you cannot communicate? If so, what are you trying to connect with? A LAN? A domain controller? A broadband router for internet access?

Sorry to ask so many questions but we need info to solve a problem.

Did you install the System Enhancements software from the compaq site?

The Revision History for it mentions fixing a problem with PCMCIA.


You should probably install it then reinstall the netelligent software. Do we know for sure that the PCMCIA card is from Compaq? We are talking about a separate card that looks like a fat credit card that fits in a slot on the notebook, aren't we? Not the builtin NIC? That one needs the Intel driver at

You might also try to update the BIOS with the ROMPaq at:
