    Right you are! Sorry.

    HP, the new owner of Compaq, doesn't actually tell me what the network card is; it's not listed in any of the specifications, and of course HP's parts Web site is down at the moment.

    This is an Ethernet card you're trying to get working, or the wireless?

    If it's Ethernet ... Let's take an educated guess. Try this:

    Try downloading the driver for the Netlink 57xx. That's a popular chip with laptops. If it's not the right one, you won't do any damage.

    If it's not the right one, try a few more things.
    Start: Control Panels: System, Device Manager, Network adapters. Click the little Plus sign there. Does it happen to tell you what the adapter is? If so, write back here or Google it.

    If not, Start: Programs: Accessories: System Tools: System Information, Components: Networking. Anything there?
