You need the Intel Pro 100 driver for XP. Go to the following web link at Intel: http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/highlights/network/pro100ve and download the driver. Copy it to a flash drive. Put the flash drive into your PC that needs the LAN driver and double-click it to install it.

I reinstalled XP Pro and I cannot connect to the intern et. It appears I am missing drivers for the Ethernet Controller. What is the simplest solution? Where can I get the driver?


when you update a driver, you also need a cd installer. If you lost the cd installer of the product, you really have to do the worst thing.: search and search for the drivers over the internet until you find it. Goodluck men..!

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.

Not recognized


A Network Drive, that which is connected via an Ethernet cable will not appear as new hardware. You should have connected it to the router on your network, then seen it as a network device.
Check My Network Places.
You will need to Map a drive to see it every time you boot.

Ethernet not working after format and xp reinstall


Right-click the My Computer icon and select Manage, then go to the Device Manager in the list on the left and find the Network Adapter from the list on the right, right-click Network Adapter and select Uninstall. When you reboot, XP should find the Adapter and reinstall it automatically. Another reboot may be required.

If it still will not connect, go to the NIC Manufacturer's website and download the driver to removable media. The Driver Update option can be accessed in the Device Manager, but this time select Properties when you right-click the Network Adapter, and go to the Driver tab.

Ethernet Drivers (slow internet access)?


the fastest speed is the slowest path on the network.
right click on the my network place.
right click on the NIC local connection
click on configuration at the right of the connect using (NIC)
second tab, "advanced" check the speed & duplex- it should be auto, but you can change it. do not recommend it.
check resources- make sure it has no conflect with any other device.
if that doesn't help. uninstall the NIC driver and try to find a older driver. Sometime that works better, don't ask me, but it works.

I had to reinstall windows xp. Now I cannot connect to the internet.


Make sure the driver of the Ethernet Card on your computer is installed. You check it under Device Manager

Right-click My Computer > Properties > Hardware Tab > Device Manager > Network Adapters (click the +). If you see Other Devices with yellow exclamations like Ethernet Controller, that's it. You need to run the Motherboard CD to automatically install the ethernet driver.
