Win XP Can't find network card

Win XP says it cannot find my network hardware. However I'm able to access the internet under linux on the same machine.. I've tried rollback and it hasn't worked.

Is there some setting that's been munged? or do I have to reinstall the os on the partition? (NB . I boot with GRUB )

Re: Win XP Can't find network card

You may need to trash all the XP network configurations and start from scratch. A similar thing has happened to me but YMMV

I cannot connect to my wireless network ( I can connect ONLY by wire) and my Internet provider suggested me to try and find a new driver. Can you find one and notify me?


I think it would be better if you check first the Switch of your wireless and see if its turn ON. If happens that the switch is ON, you have to check the Device Manager on your machine and see if the wireless card is listed under Network Adapter. Here's how you can check the wireless card.

Windows 7 and Windows Vista

Start->Control Panel->Hardware and Sound->Device Manager (in Category View)

Start->Control Panel->Device Manager (in Large or Small Icon View and for Vista Classic View)

Windows XP
Start->Right Click on My Computer->Properties(it will open a window)->Click Hardware->Device Manager

Under Device Manager just double click on the Network Adapter and it should give you list, just check if your Wireless Card is listed, if its not most likely the card is not working or faulty. It would be better to call the manufacturer for more assistance.

I cant connect internet

I would recommend a basic ping command to in the terminal to make sure your card is working. If so, and you know your network is set up correctly check your hardware status in the control panel. Is it set up correctly or is it using another device ie the wired network card while you are "using " wireless.

Unfortunately WinXP Pro cannot cannot become a domain server, but you can install a free program called K9 Web Protection on each of the PC's you have on your network and will be able to allow users to browse safely on the internet. Here is a link to their site:

It can filter web content and even setup a schedule of when users are granted web access and when it is denied.

Linux 5 is not detecting my broadband modem

The connecting to internet is very easy in linux .

There are many steps but i am saying simple one

Initially configure the adsl router with ppoe over ethernet and enable dhcp address option.

Next plug the ethernet cable from router to the inteface of lan card.

Boot the redhat machine.

In the system-->Administration-->network options check whether lan card is detected and active .

If the lan card is not active activate and save

In lan card select option assign assig ip automatically

check whether ip is assigned by using command ifconfig .

Ethernet controller and USB are missing on XP

Yes, the device-drivers can be downloaded from the Internet, to one computer, and then burned onto a CD-writable, or written to a USB memory-stick, and then the files can be physically moved to the other computer.

But, "which" device-drivers is completely dependent on which computer that you have. Some motherboards have "integrated" network-adapters and "integrated" USB-ports.

Easiest solution is to take an add-in PCI network-adapter card, and install it, and connect the Ethernet cable to its socket.
Hopefully, Windows will recognize that card, and automatically load the correct device-drivers from the C: drive, i.e., without Internet access.
Or, if you buy an add-in card, it may come with a CD-ROM that contains the device-driver.

Once the device-drivers have been installed, you will have Internet connectivity. Access:
and click "Custom" scan, and then click "Optional Hardware".
Windows Update should find the device-drivers for your motherboard, and install them. Then, you can remove the add-in card, and connect the Ethernet cable to the "on-mother-board" network socket.
