Network Adapter/Ethernet Controller

Hello, I did a clean XP clean install on a older computer and when I installed my Network Adapter (Extreme N DWA-552), and yes, I did install the physical card first, I managed to install the drivers, but, the ethernet controller that was(?) already on the computer is showing up as new hardware and I can't seem to get rid of it (tried uninstalling the ethernet controller out of device manager), but, it keeps showing up on restart......................

    I am still having trouble with this! My Extreme N router upstairs is a DLink DIR-615 and the wireless Extreme N adapter is a DWA-552. There isn't any problem using these two together is there?? Thanks for your help, I appreciate it!

Nothing wrong with having two network adapters installed on your computer. If you have this DWA-552 wireless adapter installed as well as an onboard NIC, the correct thing to do is have both drivers installed so you see them both in your Control Panel->Network Connections window.

If you really want the onboard nic to go away, go into device manager and disable it - not uninstall it.

I have just unistalled vista and replaced it with windows xp pro but driver for ethernet controller are not installed my computer is iqon


If you are doing this on a laptop then that's probably because there was no driver ever made for your ethernet controller for Windows XP pro. This is a standard tactic that Microsoft and the computer manufacturers use to get you to upgrade your operating system and never go back to an older operating system.
It means less headaches for manufacturer since they then don't have to go back and make an extra driver for an older operating system which saves them time and money and of course Microsoft gets money for every operating system purchased with a new computer.
The good news is there is an easy solution. You can buy a small USB wireless ethernet adapter to plug into one of your USB ports and you will have internet again. It will come with a driver disk, but many times your operating system will automatically install the correct drivers when you plug the device in.
You can get a great deal on a new USB wireless ethernet adapter here:

I particularly like this model because it works well and is very small:

What kind of computer do you have? The trick here is first to get the computer on the internet by finding out what kind of network card is installed on a internet connected computer do one of the following
1> If its a dell go to http://www.dell.com/support and click on download drivers enter your service tag number Download the network driver to a flash drive and install Connect to the internet and repeat the above process to install the other drivers.
Most manufacture websites will have a download page for the drivers but you can also google the make model and operating system drivers for example google acer aspire 1000 xp network driver.
