Hey all, I've spent all day trying to fix a computer and I've tried about 3 versions of linux and have given up and installed good old XP back on it. It's an old computer and doesn't need to really do anything apart from store work.

Anyway, I've just installed it and it cannot find drivers for my NIC card, which means no network on internet connection. I've tried looking all over for drivers but can't find any anywhere which is really starting to get annoying now.

Wondering if anyone could offer any help. I think the motherboard is an INTEL D845GRG but could also be a INTEL D845PT also.

Any help would be appreciated like <------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------> much =]

Right click on the devices and select "Properties"
Click on the Details tab and then select "Hardware ID" from the dropdown box.
Note the 4 characters after VEN_ and the 4 characters after DEV_

Then, go to this website: http://www.pcidatabase.com
and enter the characters after the VEN_ into the Vendor search box.
Then click on Search.
When the link for the Vendor shows up, click on it.
Then search the page for the characters after the DEV_ and let us know what it finds.

Thank you for the reply.. Usasma.. This is what I got

Chip Number: 10011734
Chip Description: LAN Controller with 82562ET/EZ PHY
Notes: bus #1, device #8, drivers http://www.intel.com/design/network/produc...llers/82562.htm

I already checked the Viglen support site but couldn't find the drivers I needed, only the motherboard drivers and I wasn't sure exactly what I needed.

Thanks anyway,
Dan

Realizing this is probably a mute point now, since it would seem you have your problem sorted out. But for future reference when you are at the Viglen site link I posted, all you have to do is to click on the "Click here to view the whole FTP site", and that will take you to their web page that has all their drivers downloads located.
