  • I just installed windows 7 and noticed this  adapter being the only hardware not automatically configured.
    And this driver isnt working for me. Im on win7 64 and when I point it to that inf file I get the error
    The folder you specified doesn't contain a compatible software driver for your device. If the folder contains a driver, make sure it is designed to work with Windows for x64-based systems.

    Is there any luck to get this to work?
    I usually use this adapter to do quick pc to pc networks with some crossover cables.

  • This is an old card, and the driver probably isn't 64-bit compliant. I suspect the driver is actually an XP driver, as that was the last OS to natively support the 3C905. I seem to recall it not working in the 64-bit version of XP either.

  • this worked perfectly for me on a Windows 7 Enterprise 32bit system.

    The system that I used it on was a Shuttle PC SN41G2 v3. The onboard ethernet card just wouldn't seem to work even after installing the nvidia driver for it. So I tried using this driver for my 3Com card and it worked GREAT!! Thanks for the tip!

  • The driver works very well for my Windows 7 (32-bit).  Thanks!

  • For Win7 64bit you have to install manually a compatible driver within in the driver collection of Win7: Choose network-adapter >>> realtek semiconductor (the 2nd) >>> HP EN 1207D-Tx PCI 10/100

    This driver is working well.

    Sorry man but this doesn't appear to work on Win7 Ultimate 64 bits. It installs a "Realtek RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC" and this device always shows a Code 10 error: this device cannot be started. Anyone tried this and worked?
    Sunday, November 27, 2011 2:42 PM
  • What does code10 mean?

    Is this a onboard chipset? or pci card?

    I just added a pci 10/100 ethernet card and rather then use the cd, I let windows do its thing and it came up with the realtek RTL8139/810x.

    I am using ultimate 64bit and the ethernet is working well so far, windows demoted Nvidia on board ethernet to the #2 spot.
