I have just acquired a handed down mini-tower PC claiming to be a Fujitsu-Siemens Scaleo J (on the case). The only text I could find on the motherboard is p4m800-pro-M.

I have reached a point installing Windows Server 2003 (SBS, via MSDN) where a NIC is required, yet Windows does not recognise the installed NIC. The cable seems fine, green lights are on on both sides, i.e. my DSL router and the PC.

I can't find any working links for drivers for the Scaleo J, yet lots for various guises of p4m800-pro. The first I tried has had no effect on the OS recognising and dealing with the NIC. Any advice will be most welcome.

Hmmm, have you tried out Belarc if it can perhaps find some information on that NIC? Maybe even an FCC number or something?

Also here is the manual for the motherboard, maybe this will help: http://uk.ts.fujitsu.com/rl/servicesupport/techsupport/Boards/Motherboards/ECS/P4M800Pro-M/Man%5FP4M800Pro-M%5Fuk.pdf

Here are the drivers from the direct website: You can also see the NIC drivers here.
