Thank you for the analysis of the problem.  I spoke at length
to a tech support person at 3com to see if I could send the 
card back for examination, but to no avail.  I've sent them
e-mail detailing my problem, and I anticipate a question.

The card works perfectly fine under windows 98 -- is there a
reason why a non-connecting pin wouldn't affect operation under
the said OS?

Thanks in advance,

Michael

None Hmmm, that's a good question

I guess it isn't a bad pin.  Maybe the EEPROM on the card is flaky, or
something along the path between the EEPROM and the card connector is
broken.  Windows might not be checking the card's product info.
