to be able to add a new adapter from
within the Network Properties:

When selecting to "Add" on a
Windows ME system, there is
no selection to add:

To add a new adapter, you have
to use in the Control-Panel :
"Add New Hardware"
The "Wizard" will start.
You can follow the recommondation
to let Windows search for new
If you install a legacy ISA Network
, Windows ME may not find
it and then you need to select it
from the list
I select as Hardware type:
"Network Adapters"
and select my specific network card

by Windows were not correct.

(part of the Properties of "System")
for this network card:
Tab: Resources the proper values.

Such a change requires a restart of the system.

After the restart, check again in Device-Manager, that the Network card is working properly:
