    Thanks for that, but wasnt the ones i need.

    We have some computers that have Nvida nForce Networking Controller

    I thought the Realtek 8211 might work as there is a chip with that written on the motherbaord.

    please can someone help find me dos drivers i can't seem to find them

    As pointed out its an Nvidia driver you are after not a Realtek one, it can be a pain as its in two parts but there is a handy guide. Do you know which board or chipset it is you have?

    Goto:
    Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers
    Select "nforce" as the product type and then select the edition and that should be it?

    Sorry I got the completly wrong end of the stick, those I have linked to are the DOS drivers

    Try these Acer Europe - Service & Support, Drivers & Utilities, Downloads, Desktop, Acer Veriton M464

    Did you try the ones I posted? What happened, they are not like normal NDIS drivers you will need to run NDIS2.exe before the NIDS.DOS driver is loaded.

    well use just the nds to create a ghost bootdisk to test them. gave an error message and in ghost you dont have any network communication.

    Thanks allot

    In that case download the drivers from the first link I posted and have a look through the pdf guide included, it explains how to make a ghost boot disk as you have to manually edit it (unless you have done that alread).
