3COM PCMCIA card 3C589D-TP driver for Windows 2000 Pro
(may work for other 3C589D cards and other versions of Windows)
Here's a recipe that will work. Sorry I cant provide a self contained driver at least
this method will get that card going.
STEP 1. Install the windows 2000 driver for a 3COM 3CCFE575BT 10/100 nic.
I have included that driver w2k575bu here for your convenience (I installed this driver
with a physical card, but this may not be necessary).
STEP 2. Copy the el589nd5.sys file in the Winnt/system32/drivers
directory, then insert the 3C589D-TP card. Voila !
I am not sure how I installed it initially, but on a clean fresh Windows 2000 SP3 laptop
that recipe works.

DriverGuide.com - Using DriverGuide's Installer
DriverGuide's installer software (Windows only) simplifies the driver installation process. It safely downloads and verifies your driver and then assists in the installation of it.
You may notice that the file size of the installer software is much smaller than the file size of your actual driver. The reason is that first the installer setup file is downloaded, and then the installer software does the work of fetching your driver from our fastest download server.
The installer setup file has been certified safe by leading-class virus and malware scanners.
Sometimes anti-virus software can report false positives. If this happens to you, we encourage you to submit the file you download to VirusTotal (a free, independent service which identifies malicious content) where you will see dozens of other anti-virus scanners report the file is perfectly safe.
The installer setup file may include a purely optional advertising offer which you are free to decline. We only work with trusted advertising partners.
Note: Windows only. Mobile, Mac OS and Linux users can choose other download options by deselecting the installer checkbox below the download button.
