This VENDOR and DEVICE is a RealTek network-adapter.
Do a Google-search for that string, and download one of the device-drivers for it.
Or, if it is integrated into the motherboard, access the web-site for the manufacturer of the motherboard, select the model-number of your motherboard, and select the "network-adapter" device-driver, download it, and install it.
Hi, if it's a genuine IBM computer, give their support line a ring and ask. You can also visit their website and in the Support section, have a look for the network driver for your particular computer model. What model is your IBM computer? In system properties, can you click update driver for the network card? To get here click on Windows Start (bottom left of your screen), then select Run, then type in the box this: sysdm.cpl then hit OK. Then select Hardware tab, then Device Manager. Scroll down to your Network Card which will probably have a Yellow exclamation mark next to it. Double click on the network card, then Select Driver and then Update Driver. If you are on the net at the time Windows should search the web for the right network driver. Cheers, Steve
Times like this you might just have to crack the case open and find out the make and model of the network card. You might be able to get the driver you need by going to the manufacture's web site to download the driver.
Also, if you have not done so, try upgrading the service pack on windows xp first.
Download (PCwizard) install it and run it will find all the drivers for your computer and list them go to network card note name and number enter into search bar of your web browser EG realtek 23451 drivers put your card name and number in same as above ensure you get the driver for your O/S xp or vista
The only other things I can recommend is an online system driver scan that will detect the ID's on the unknown network controller and tell you which driver to download. The only problem with this is that you would need to install another NIC to do this unless you arleady have one.
A lot of network adaptors can work using generic drivers. Myself, I download drivers from manufacturer's websites such as acer (the maker of my laptop) and found that the drivers they provide can be used on a lot of different systems. I found a website that provides a list of network adapter drivers.. have a look on this site. I would suggest the realtek driver, but if you can find out the model or manufacturer of your card, it would be a lot easier
