    Did you install the driver manually? Without a wizard?

Try going to add hardware. Then select yes, the hardware is installed. When it gives you the list of installed devices, go to the bottom and select add new hardware device. After that select the advanced option to select "install the hardware I manually select from a list". On the next page, select network adapters. Then click "have disk" you will now have to put your driver in a folder(usually on the desktop). After you select have disk you will browse for the folder which has the driver. Make sure your driver has a file that has the extension ".inf" as this is needed to install the driver.
Hope this helps

Wlan driver problem in vaio vgn-cs21gn


Hi...
This is Nishit Jadawala from Ahmedabad, India. I am also having the same problem with my Sony Vaio VGN-CS21GN Laptop. WiFi was working perfectly in Vista but when I downgraded it to Windows-XP it started giving me errors that "Driver Not Found for the Device" I have downloaded all the drivers available on internet but nothing worked.
Finally after 8 months of research on this problem, I came to know that there is a bug in the supplied Windows XP-SP3 Operating System. There is a file in Service Pack 3 that doesn't allow drivers to access the hardware of WiFi.
The Solution is you will have to forget the bundled windows XP and upgrade your operating System. Right now better option is to go for windows 7. It dint even asked for any kind of drivers to load. WiFi is also working perfectly on it. The laptop has become more faster & smoother than in windows XP.
For more queries, you can write to me on mail.squarez@gmail.com
Thanks & Regards,

XP SP3 doesnt allow driver to get loaded


not a problem in xp sp3 under the device manager in system properties you will have a yellow circle and black exclamation mark and probably say unknown device or ethernet device. right click go to properties and in details tab you will see Device ID.. we can track OEM driver from this.

Dell 4700 Computer Integrated NIC Problem


Check for the pins inside the integrated NIC to check if the pins are bent / disfigured. Does not look like the additional card is making any different, looks more like a moving NIC cable is makin the difference.

Lemme know if this helped!

Intergrated 3G


If you have the restore cds for windows xp home, the drivers from that will still work in windows xp pro. There should be a separate cd for drivers. Try that first. You can also try Windows update, sometimes it will find drivers.
