Linksys...

My web server (lombard 333) was damaged in the lightning strike, and the ethernet port no longer works. i was able to find a cardbus ethernet card laying around. It is a linksys pcmpc100 v3 Etherfast 10/100 card. Are there mac drivers available? I googled to np avail.... I am not very good at searching. Before i waste more of my life, Could any of you point me in a general direction? Thanks

Have you tried installing it

Have you tried installing it anyway? Some PCI Ethernet cards can use Apple's drivers.

I installed it, and it shows

I installed it, and it shows up on the menu bar. It doesn't show up under network in t the system preferences, and it doesn't replace built in ethernet either, becuase it still doesn't work with that option.

What OS

What OS are you running? 10.2, 10.3 or 9.x?

If using OS X, try installing

If using OS X, try installing the Developer tools (slow download from Apple) and run IORegistryExplorer which should report plug and play data for the device. You'll then need to identify the card and locate a similar supported device so that you can hack the associated Plist files. Sorry for lack of detail but there should be enough info for you to Google for similar hacks.

Try this first

Go to 'System Preferences.'
Click on 'Network.'
Choose 'Network Port Configurations' from the 'Show' dropdown menu.
See if there is a listing for your LinkSys.
If so, make sure it has a check next to it.

If it didn't have the check, then checking it will probably solve your problem.
