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: http://WindowsUpdate.Microsoft.com
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.

REINSTALLED WINDOWS XP PROF. WINDOWS COME UP BUT CANT GET ON INTE


Are you sure you are connected to the internet? You can check that by looking at the right hand corner of the monitor. The icon with two small monitors. When you point the mouse pointer to it, you should be able to see the status: connected. If it shows an X, it means that the cable is unplugged. You should make sure it is fitted on the lan card.

I just reintalled windows XP, how can I re-connect to my modem?


You either need to power cycle your modem, Or reinstall the drivers if you are connecting through USB. If you are talking about your actual dial up modem in the computer or NIC card then you will need to get the drivers for those from the manufacturer of your computers website.

Cannot connect to internet after reinstall T5020


The reason you are unable to access the internet is most definitely your lack of a Ethernet/LAN driver.

When you reinstall windows all your previous drivers will be uninstalled and only the most basic devices will be recognized.

Hopefully you will be able to locate the Driver CD that came with your PC as I have been searching for a good 30 minutes and am yet to find the particular driver you are searching for.

Hope this information helps ;)

Wireless Problems!


The computer looks for the cable because wireless is not working.

If wireless card is usb try removing laptop battery, unplugging power adapter and wifi cards, connect in five minutes and see if it works

If it still does not work, reinstall wireless card drivers.
If you have a disk reinstall them from disk.
If you lost the disk download drivers from the Internet, post model on fixya to get the link.

If the wireless card does not work after reinstalling drivers then it is probably faulty.

Note: if you use laptop internal wireless, usually you need to activate a switch to get it working.
