I just recently bought a WD8003W Network card for my xt, but I can't seem to find packet drivers for it. If you can help me out, that would be great.

thanks

Have you tried the Crynwr packet driver? Here's a whole bunch of 'em - the WD driver is in there:

Yup, in there you're looking for smc_wd.com

I use it with the same model card and it works great. Just make sure the card doesn't have a resource conflict, or you'll go insane (I found default config conflicted with at least one thing in all systems I've tried to use it in). These cards are software-configured and store their settings in NVRAM on the board. There is a utility called ezsetup which is used to configure the card. If you have difficulty finding it online please PM me and I'll try to find the file for you, I have it somewhere.

Retro told you which archive to find the packet driver in, and I told you which specific packet driver you're seeking.

You can also get the generic driver disk here (http://www.drivers-download.ru/NetCards/Other/4422.html). The site's Russian, but the file looks good--I unpacked it and had a look.
