    I have a prosignia 300 compaq with a pentium 75. The prosignia have a
    embedded ethernet controller. When I watch the bios I see a strange address.
    Such like Port address: 0xC0000 - 0xEE000.

    I will load a driver but it doesn't work. I will install lantastic 6.0 and
    load the following driver: LOADHIGH NEX000
    16-BIT IRQ=10 IOBASE=300

    But I think the address of the embedded ethernet controller is not 300. How
    can I do this???

    Best Regards,

  2. I'm not familiar with using Lantastic, but
    this doesn't sound like the correct driver for the PS300 onboard NIC?
    NEX000 sounds more like a generic Novell NE1000/2000 ISA Board driver?
    AFAIR the PS300 uses an onboard version of the Netflex or Netelligent
    but I didn't power up mine on for a while.
    It can't be 300h because its either an EISA but more likely a PCI
    Both use totally different adress ranges, 300h is an ISA boards adress
    Try to use the PS300 drivers supplied by HP/Compaq:

  5. If it has the AMD PC-Net, try the drivers Compaq supplies for the
    Deskpro/XL line.
    There may be Lantastics drivers out there for the AMD Lance PCI?
