Uploader Notes

This self extracting zip file contains all of the drivers which are in the original disk that came when I bought 3 of these cards. I am currently using the drivers on win98 and winnt, so I know they work on atleast these two systems. This card (RTL8029AS) works in half duplex or full duplex, but you hub must support full duplex for it to work or else you will get a lot of collisions. If you get a lot of collisions switch it to half duplex and this might fix this problem. I'm not using the BNC connector so I don't know if it works if full duplex. Enjoy...(1/08/00)

"I purchased a new Realtek NIC card, but it came without drivers(new but not "retail package"). I downloaded and installed these drivers and they worked great. After re-boot I connected at max Mbps DSL."

  1. Locate the device and model that is having the issue and double-click on it to open the Properties dialog box.

  2. Select the Driver tab.

  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.

Tech Tip: Driver downloads and updates come in a variety of file formats with different file extensions. For example, you may have downloaded an EXE, INF, ZIP, or SYS file. Each file type has a slighty different installation procedure to follow.
