One of my PC's has a mysterious NIC that won't configure properly with my DLink cable router. Windows sees it only as "NE-2000 compatible" and uses the generic NE-2000 driver for it. DLink support says to identify the card and get a new driver for it.
But the NIC card has no manufacturer's label. Here's what it has:
1. a red-and-white Novell "Yes - Netware Tested and Approved" sticker on the metal port connector tab;
2. A serial number, bar code, and generic statement with "Made in Taiwan" on the back side'
3. DELTA LAN NF7236 9517 on a thick (1" x 1/4" x 1/4") chip;
4. THB16J04 DELTA 9513 on a an 8-pin chip;
5. a sticker with the number 3303378 on another, thinner 8-pin chip'
6. thre UMC chips of various sizes;
7. several ISSI chips.

From what I can see from their web site, Delta just makes parts for the card- eg, s the NF7326 is apparently an Ethernet LAN Filter Module. So I don't think it's a Delta NIC.

Help, anyone? Is there a way to identify this NIC, say from the serial number? Please?

NIC's are less than 20 bucks - I'd just get a new NIC and go about my business.
