you must ethernet controller driver first
goto device manager, right click at exclamation mark, then chose update driver, follow instuction step by step, if it ask for cd driver insert motherboard cd driver, if you did not have cd driver download ethernet controller here http://www.asrock.com/MB/download.asp?Model=P4i65GV&o=XP
wait until process finish and exclamation mark at device manager disappear, and try to connect your computer to internet
i hope this helpful

PCI Modem is your dial up modem, Ethernet Controller is your Network Card, and SM Bus Controller is your Motherboard Chipset drivers. There missing because your Operating System has Either Corrupt Drivers or they were never installed in the first place. Sounds like a fresh installation was done and nobody bothered to look in the device manager to see if any hardware drivers were missing.
i have format my computer and now other devices in computer are demanding software namely Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus,Ethernet controller,SM Bus controller and Video controller(VGAcompatible)
if you want to download from the same PC then you cant as the Ethernet driver will not be installed ..
if it is installed then you can download ....
check it in the control panel>system(switch to classic view in case of XP)> hardware>device manager in device manager go to network adapters there if the Ethernet driver is installed then you will be displayed there (if the driver is not installed then you will not see that network adapters also) if it is not installed then you must download the Ethernet driver from some where else to your system from your manufacture(motherboard or chipset manufacture) website (if it is intel then http://downloadcenter.intel.com in this website you can search it & download) if you have the Ethernet driver installed then you can download from your system only the other drivers from the manufacture website ....
