View Full Version : quick dumb question about PC cards

01 January 2003, 10:43 PM
I know this is a basic kind of dumb question, but better safe than sorry.

If I remove my NIC and move it to a different slot, will Win2k recognize it and set everything up so that I wont have to reconfigure my internet?

yeah, it should. Except that when it installs the NIC card, it'll put in "Card #2" after whatever name it is. And when u manually assign the IP, which I do on everything in my network, it'll keep irritating u by saying NIC #1 already has the same IP and asks if u wanna change it etc etc etc...but Win2K is usually pretty responsive when u switch around PCI cards. To test it when I first started using the OS, i took ALL my hardware out and mixed up the lineup to see what would happen... pretty robust system.
