I plan on getting a network adaptor used, but I need to know if the disc that comes with it is important. What does it contain exactly? Will I be able to fully use my network adaptor without that disc?
The Network Adapter Start-Up Disc creates a network configuration so that you can go online with your games. Each online enabled game will also contain the ability to create a network configuration. The only thing that a Network Adapter Start-Up Disc offers that games do not are the diagnostics and testing utilities… and some demos and crap.
