    Drivers for 3Com Phoneline Adapter


    Hi,

    I have a 3ComŽ HomeConnect Home Network Phoneline Adapter (http://support.ap.dell.com/docs/network/5376u/Specs.htm). We have two Windows machines (2k and XP) networked over the phone line using that adapter. The XP machine has the dsl modem connected to it. And the 2k machine (mine) is accessing the internet through the XP machine over the phoneline.

    Anyway, I installed Mandrake 9.2 on a second harddrive recently. It seemed to recognize the 3Com NIC, but none of the drivers worked. I've searched online, but no luck. Is there a driver (generic?) that would work?

    I realize that our network setup is a bit unorthodox, but I'm hoping I can get it to work with Mandrake.

    Thanks for your help.
