I need Network Controller and Ethernet COntroller drivers for my Gateway 450ROG, running OS XP SP3.


Go to Gateway.com and in the search type in 450ROG. At the top of the list you will see Gateway 450ROG, click on it. Now click on software information and then Windows XP. You should now see a list of software drives. A little better than halfway down the list you will see Network - Intel PRO/100 V..... click on this. You will now see how to install this driver from you system disk (provided with the laptop).

If you do not have the disk, then follow the link below directly to intels web site for download. The reason I posted the link, finding it was a lot more steps than I would like to type up here.

I reinstalled winxp sp3 on a gateway 450 rog. I was able to install all the drivers except the network controller and it also won't recognize the wireless adapter, any thoughts or ideas?


I had the same problem.
The "Network Controller" in my case had to do with the wireless network driver on my 450ROG.
None of the drivers that are available for 450ROG on the Gateway Support site worked correctly.
Here's what I did to solve the problem:
1. Flip the computer over. 2. On the back, you may see a little module that says "Fitted with Intel WM3B2100 802.11b". That's the built-in wireless network card (had no idea this computer had one, I inherited it). 3. Go to the Intel support site:http://downloadcenter.intel.com/ 4. Do a search for the "WM3B2100" driver. 5. Download and install the driver.
Fixed it for me!
Full info about the Gateway 450ROG is available at: http://support.gateway.com/s/Mobile/Gateway/450ROG/3501353sp66.shtml This helped get me on the right track.

Gateway 450rog notebook cleaned hard drive and installed xp. need drivers installed for ethernet controller. do not have driver disk and looked on gateway support.??


I took a look out on Gateway's download site and found the usual drivers for your box.

gateway's download site

In particular here is the url to the network driver I think you are looking for

network driver

Hopefully you can use a friends pc to connect to this web site, download the driver onto a usb stick, and then take that to your laptop and install the driver.

good-luck.
