I'm having a major problem. I'm desperately looking for a Windows 98 PCI Ethernet Controller Driver for my IBM Aptiva E Series 284 computer. It's old and I'm trying to get a network going but I can't because in the Device Manager it shows "OTHER DEVICES" and below that it shows "PCI ETHERNET CONTROLLER" with a yellow ? and a yellow circle with a !. My ISP said I need to install the driver from the manufacturer but there's no manufacturer listed when I click "Properties" on it. Where can I get the driver?
You should be able to find the correct drivers for this network device at the IBM site. If you can't find them the easy thing to do would be to simply buy and install a new network card. They are only about $10. To search for the IBM drivers you need more info than what you provided. There may be a part number for the computer that appears when the machine is first started.
