I have an HP320LX and a Xircom 10/100 CE3B pcmcia NIC. I downloaded the drivers from Intel. double checked my CPU (SH3) and Win Version.(2.0). copied the cab file to my 320 and when I double click the file. The driver install starts then fails almost immediatly. tells me, "cannot find the file" but the file it is looking for is the one i click on to start the install. i have tried from \, \temp, \windows, \desktop. i tried first with the network patch.(ne2000) and then tried from a hard boot, nothing loaded. I tried loading the MS SP1, but same error everytime. Is there a back way i could manually install the files?
Any Help at this point would be great.
Thanks, Joe.

Anyone have any tips on running ethernet cables in a house? My house is about 12 years old and was not built with network cable runs. Can someone link me to some good sites/give me some good ideas on running cables? Ideally I'd like the modem/router mounted on my board where the electric/cable/phone lines come in and then run ethernet from there. Can this be done without ripping too many walls out? Any good tricks to use existing cable runs to snake my ethernet cables along those?

Hi,
Home Depot sells long drill bits so you can drill through the top plate and firewall studs to install the cable. Also, I would not recommend installing the cable under a rug - it will wear the cable.

Other than that, it gets installed the same way a phone line does except that all cables must come back to the router. If you need more ethernet ports then you may need to install a switch and a cable to connect the switch to the router.

Whoa there! Without intimate, exact knowledge of the household wiring already in place it is VERY likely you would electrocute yourself, burn down your house, or both while randomly drilling holes in the walls. While much can be guessed about wire routing based on outlet locations and the panel location, and of course much more could be seen if you have an exposed, unfinished basement ceiling, I'd suggest for safety reasons that you ensure such holes are drilled by a qualified electrician.
