Re: Network adapter not showing up in device manager
Go to the website for your computer's manufacturer, and do a search for your computer's model number. (obviously not on the computer with the problem) There should be a section with your computer in it that has all of the specs for it. Look down this list, and the network card should be listed.. You might have to go to the card manufacturer's site for the driver, though, because most of the computer manufacturers aren't includind drivers for xp. Most card manufacturer's websites do still have xp drivers, even for the newer cards

Get onlineand got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "HPSupport" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operatingsystem when requested. Download and install the Audio and Network drivers.
For Windows XP CLICK HERE In Windows 7 the driver installs automatically I would suggest uninstalling all drivers for the network adapter then reboot and allow the system to find the NIC again. If this is Windows XP uninstall all drivers for the NIC, reboot, and install the above driver. If it is Windows 7 uninstall the drive, reboot and allow device manager to locate the driver itself.
click on start on theleft bottom corner, then right click on my computer and you wil get the option of manage, once clicking on manage, you will be redirected to a page where on the left side you will get the option od device manager, once you click on device manager, you will get a list of deices on the right, in the list there would be an option of networ adapters, once you click on network adapters you will get the option of NIC, note down the name of NIC card, find the card model in google and install the drivers
Hi, If your son' s computer has a LAN port, then install the LAN driver.
LAN port is different from modem. Modem is used for dial-up connection
while LAN uses broadband or dsl connection. If you do not know where or
how to find the LAN driver, post the manufacturer and model name of
your LAN or the motherboard. You can also find it by right clicking the
My Computer icon->Manage->Device Manager. On the right side,
Expand the Network Adapter. You will then find the software that you
are going to reinstall. Another thing is to try to update the driver if
it works or not. Here are the steps :
Right click My Computer icon.
A box will appear (Computer Management), Click Device Manager
On the right side, Click and expand Network Adapters
Right click the software, click update driver.
Wait 'til it finds the necessary software.
If it does, then your finished installing the Network
Adapter driver. If it says it cannot find the necessary software, you
have to manually install it.
IF NOT yet installed, copy the Network Adapter software and paste it in google to find your Network Adapter installer.
I hope this fix your problem. Drop me a comment again if you encounter some problems, ok? I will assist you.
I will assume that your broadcom adapter is not showing up under Device Manager > Network Adapters. It will happen if the driver is not properly installed.
Look for "Other Devices" under Device Manager. Usually, it will show as Network Controller or Ethernet Controller. Right click that and select update driver. Make sure that you have the driver or file for that adapter. Once the driver is properly installed, it will be under Network Adapter with the correct name.
assuming it's XP,right click my computer>properties>hardware tab>device manager, then look down list for network adapters, if its there click the '+' sign, then right click on the network adapter and select uninstall.
Restart pc and the network card will be found and the driver automatically installed.
It should now be in network connections, if not reply back
If you right-click the "unknown" device and select Update Driver, you can force windows to search for the correct driver, and then put in the CD or floppy that came with the network adapter, and tell Windows to look on that CD or floppy. If the installation process didn't work, this might.
