Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
Is this a recently installed card? If so, the "usual" procedure is to install the drivers first, then shut down the computer, install the card, then reboot and let the Windows "found new hardware wizard" run. (Otherwise you may end up with a generic driver.) If you installed the NIC in another manner, uninstall the driver first.
Of course, manufacturer's directions should be followed when possible.
If it is an existing card, you can go to the manufacture's website and download the latest driver. Before installing the new driver you need to uninstall the old driver (it may have become corrupted) through device manager (right click "my computer", select "properties" select the "hardware" tab then "device manager". Then check the box next to "network adapters". Right click your NIC and select "uninstall".
