How to install a RTL 8111E via NDIS2-driver?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Can anyone point me to a "how to install an NDIS2-driver AFTER having installed W98SE" ?

Reason: I got a PCIe NIC with the RTL 8111B chipset working, no problem, Realtek deliveres a driver.

By looking at the inf-files of that driver (from 2008), 8111D should be possible.

Unfortunately, there are some AMD-boards by i.e. Gigabyte (GA-870A-USB3, rev. 3.1), which have a 8111E, for which there is no driver for W98SE.

btw: A fairly complete discussion took place between rloew and xRayer here (but without the howto):

http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/97588-modern-motherboards-which-are-working-with-windows-98/?page=14

hint: I bought a Digitus PCIe 8111E/8168E for experimenting. On my MSI-Z77A-G45, it works. On My GA-EP35-DS3R, the PC hangs when the NIC initializes, before even able to enter the bios... so probably don't use it on older boards...

Cheers, Ragnar G.D.

Maybe I can help you if you are still looking for a real mode driver. What is the VEN/DEV code of the device in question?

Thank you!!!

I'm just back from a long journey. Unfortunately, the board for which i needed this was DOA and sent to the merchant for RMA.

When the board is back (i ordered the same again), I'll contact you.

I have a few of these.

Let's see what you can do.  These might be a good 98SE PCIe network card.  Very affordable on eBay.

I've been messing with the 98SE/ME drivers and either they were not added for this card or simply can't work with it.

But the NDIS2-driver method we can give this a try.  Not sure if ragnargd ever got his replacement card so this might be helpful later.
