"I found an old 3COM980-TXM PCI Network card and I needed an additional port to keep things behind a fire wall (an old DI-904)... It seems so far that the card is running at least IPV4... I am not sure if it will run IPV6

I would be suprised if It didn't.

Many Thanks for the one that uploaded this driver. It solved a lot of problems for me."

  3. Click the Update Driver button and follow the instructions.

In most cases, you will need to reboot your computer in order for the driver update to take effect.
