Have a friend with an oldish Compaq board, P6B580RSUQ4V4K is the full model number. As far as I know, it has a Realtek 8081L LAN chip. He needs a driver for 98SE. Well, really, all the drivers, but he managed to get most of them working. I can't find a darn thing, I believe its an Asus built board, from the part number, has the HP stamp P450 on it. HP/Compaq has nothing on their site, just a message to call for support with that product. Searching every which way just brings up torrent and Rapidshare sites. Right.

Any help here?

As far as I know, yeah. One of those four. Who knows, it's a Compaq. I do know that it's that model, chipset, and LAN chip. That's about the best I can do. He just did some microscopic reading while I was out, so I may be wrong on the chipset.

Pardon the spelling, that wasn't me. :P I'll keep hunting as well, but anything I come up with......yeah. Obviously, I'm doing this via e-mail, and he's got no digital camera, so I can't even look at the board for an idea.

Have you tried the realtek site with one of the 81XX drivers (8139a is a good generic driver)....

Yeah, that's the first place I went, but I couldn't find anything remotely in that series. Got a link? All I can find is the Taiwan site, gives me nothing but PCI/PCIe cards.

Since Windows 98 is 'abandoned', drivers may be hard to find.
The site Driver Pro.com lists that model. They also have a "Driver Robot" that may find the chip stats and relate to the correct driver version. The Realtek site lists version 5.707 for W98/ME.

Sent both of those links, thanks Karl. I thought about a couple of detection sites, but they kinda require the comp needing updates to be connected to the 'net........... :P

I've found a couple of other likely sources as well, my main concern is the LAN. If he can get that working, he can likely get workable drivers for everything else off the HP site.

Might want to try Driver Guide.
They have a variety of legacy drivers

If only you could borrow a PCI network card from someone...



Ugh, I've lost count of how many I have laying around... :oops: :roll:
I'm gonna get my new hardware. And my worklog here.

Well, if he can't get 'er working with all of that, he's more hopeless than I thought. :P

Thanks guys, I appreciate it. AmEv, I did mention hitting up Staples or something for a PCI card, or ordering one from NewEgg if all else fails. $10 for a basic card just to get things rolling, the rest would be easy.
