Thanks FM, those were the drivers I got earlier today.
Flop -- all other PCs DHCP just fine, and these computers can see the whole netbeui network, so they should be able to DHCP. As I said, I don't think it's even trying, because normally a machine of that era will experience slowdowns as it waits for a DHCP server to reply to its requests.
Bob- when I get in tomorrow I'll try that. It's odd that winipcfg doesn't allow me to release/renew.
I actually found a lot of people had probs with this card in Linux, again with it not wanting to DHCP. But it's odd because this is a fairly well-known and well-used card, and does not seem to give most people these issues. And all the DHCP problems I found were linux-related, this is in win 95 (retail ver).
Tomorrow I will also try to disable PnP and manually set the IRQ/memory addresses for the card, and see if it works then.
