Sorry to revive this old thread - does a 16bit ethernet card (Cogent EM110) also work in a 8bit slot? Thx!

Just wondering if there are any 8-bit ISA ethernet cards in existance, because all I've ever seen or heard of is 16-bit EISA ethernet cards. I'd like to find one so I can get my Zenith on the Internet so I can use that Contiki OS on it.

:o

I have an 8 bit Ethernet Card, made in Ireland of all places, I installed it into a 386 motherboard with an 8 bit slot, installed Windows 3.11 and the TCP/IP software, plugged in a cable modem and all worked like a charm.

WD 87-89 era.
