Arcnet network interface cards based on the Standard Microsystems Corporation (SMC) 90C65 controller chip may generate the

No Files Found

error when you attempt to view a directory of a network drive in File Manager with Microsoft Windows for Workgroups (WFWG).


There is no work around for this problem. The only correction is a hardware modification to the card. Contact the manufacturer of the network card for specific information on upgrading the affected chip.


If a network card with this chip is used on a Windows for Workgroups server with the NetBEUI protocol, a Windows for Workgroups workstation can browse and successfully connect to the server, but the "No Files Found" error is generated even though there are files in the shared directory. Other symptoms of this problem are the inability to run:

  • Novell's TurboKit drivers
  • Artisoft's Lantastic SMCARC drivers
  • Possibly other NetBEUI protocol networking software products

The SMC120 Arcnet card uses their top-of-the-line ASL30519 Arcnet controller chip. The SMC 90C65 Arcnet Controller Chip contains a subset of the instructions in SMC's ASL30519 Arcnet Controller Chip. The 90C65 chip is used in several OEM Arcnet network interface cards, but is not used in any SMC Arcnet boards.

The products included here (other than Windows) are manufactured by vendors independent of Microsoft; we make no warranty, implied or otherwise, regarding these products' performance or reliability.
