Win nt does not see my lan cards

Specs: Windows NT workstation 4.0, 1.333
My win nt does not see any internet cards, there are two. When it launches it sees realtek, it provides it's mac and etc. But the second is invisible. When i however type "ipconfig/all" it does not provide me with any of the cards' used mac or ip. It only says something about broadasting... (in the cmd after ipconfig/all) what's the matter? everything worked fine beforehand at win 2000, it installed both cards and worked perfectly.

The reason is likely because NT4 does not support Plug and Play. You will need to install the necessary drivers before the OS will see the device.

I did all the things that it should work, installed proper driver (as it does not let me to install the card which is nnot present) so i have installed it and still nothing. Card is 3com 3c905c-txm and i found the appropriate drivers for win NT, and still nothing.

HP who bought out 3Com do not supply drivers, but found this:

The HP Vectra VL800 uses the same same exact ethernet controller. I've used drivers from all different computers, and as long as the driver is designed for that network card it will work. Just run the exectuable below and direct NT 4.0 to the directory where the executable was extracted to.

So download the driver from here:

Here's the shortcut that jumps down to the NT 4.0 3Com driver:
