4 files and a driver update - Realtek NICerisalit32 -
I am guessing you downloaded the windows xp set without the auto installer. I did the same.
You will need to get to the update drivers tab in device manager. Forgive me if this is too much info, but: Right click "my computer
" (either on the desktop or in the start menu), click the hardware tab, click device manager
If you have working drivers already, then double click network adapters and right click the lan card listed (not wireless) and update the drivers
. You should get the option to browse to the directory/folder where you downloaded those files.
If you don't have a working NIC or lan card, you'll want to right click the network adapter which has the yellow exclamation point. Update its drivers in the same way.
Restart the notebook.
Hope this helps, and again, forgive me if this is more info than you wanted or totally off the mark. You may have already tried this and it didn't work
. In this case, I would uninstall the network adapter, let windowsxp find it after restart. Install drivers manually
and have it go to the download folder or directory where those 4 files are stored.
