I have a Gateway 2000 PC-90 on which I installed OS/2 and I'm trying to get it networked. I installed TCPIP but don't know what to enter for the network adapter. Is there any way to find this out *without* opening up the PC?

If you want to detect your network card, I suggest that you go to this url:
http://os2warp.be/index2.php?name=nicpakhome . Download the nikpak.zip-file and follow instructions. On this site you can also download nicpaks for several chipsets. Hope you get online!

Hi,

yes, melf is right: The nicpak is the best approach. Another way could be to install the pci+agp bus sniffer (@hobbes: http://hobbes.nmsu.edu/pub/os2/util/misc/pci103vka.zip )

I don't know the machine... if it's a vintage model, it might have ISA cards... but if not, the sniffer will detect the type of adapter and show you.
Might be worth having a copy of the sniffer at hand so you'll find out the rest (graphics, sound, usb...) too without opening the case...

Greetings
Thomas

Thanks guys. It did turn out to be a 3COM ISA card. Appreciate the help.
