If you are holding your network card in your hand and you don't know what the heck it is, it becomes pretty difficult to figure out what driver you need. Here is some information that may help:
Try searching by the cards Organizationally Unique Identifier (OUI).
Search using the cards FCC ID number. (For cards from the UK, search by its BABT number)
Try using a generic driver. The "NE2000 Compatible" driver is available under the company "Novell/Anthem" in Windows 95/98/NT and is compatible with many network drivers (worth a shot!)
