3C529 Etherlink III (@627C.ADF)
3C529-TP w/SB4100 Cable Modem
Works just fine under NT 4. Using the included 3com Etherlink III MCA adapter drivers from the NT install CD. Just run a TP cable from the 3C529-TP to the SB4100 and voila, cable modem speeds.
All I installed was TCP/IP, and of course, ZoneAlarm. You will need SP3 or greater for the updated network files (LDSYS?)
I installed the drivers from EtherDisk 6.1, and I am getting about 384/120 depending on where I'm surfing to.
