I have a HP 620LX which I just bought. It works great but I can't get it to network. I installed SP1 and the network update from this site. Everything installed great. Problem is, when I insert ANY NIC into any slot, it fires up the LED's, asks me the name of the driver to type in (I don't get why) and then dies. I have tried everything. My nic is a Compact Flash card by Kingston, model CIO10T. I have used this card for years in my Jornanda 568.
Can anyone give me advice or drivers??? I knew I should have bought the 720!!

We don't have any HCL data for a CIO10T. I cannot find any reference to it on Kingston.com either. :. no driver downloads.

Unlike mainstream Windows the driver database is CE is for the most part decided by the OEM, and not Microsoft. This changed somewhat in CE4.

With CE 2.00 & the NSP installed the only integrated drivers are the Novell NE2000 ones. To try it against the card, when the driver prompt appears type:
ne2000.dll

Other than that you will need specific drivers for it.
Are there any more codes on the NIC. All Kingston part numbers appear to be KNx-xxx

EDIT:
Correction. I've found it.
The NIC is called a "EtheRx Compact I/O Ethernet 10Base-T Adapter" and is now discontinued.
It is a NE2000 adapter. So following the steps above will get it working so long as you have the NSP installed.

Excellent! My friend has an older 3com NIC that might work. I knew my Jornanda 680 had the NE2000 driver, I just wasn't sure how to get Windows to use it. I'll give that a try, too.

Thanks for the input but I fured it out. It seems to be a voltage problem with the 620LX CF slot. When I used my PCMCIA adapter in the PCMCIA slot, the card worked great! Thanks again.

Odd.
There are problems with 3.3v cards under 2.x devices. Although I was only aware of it affecting 2.11. A fix is available for it from many manufacturers, including Pro based hp devices.
Glad you got it sorted.

For the record my 690 has worked fine with 3.3v NIC devices in the cf slot or with a sleeve w/o the hp patch. I guess it's on a per machine basis.

Haha you are right about getting a j720 instead. It is a great machine and I got wireless working no problem. But yeah those cf adapters are useful for more than just getting cf cards on a laptop.
