After I installed Windows XP and checked Device Manager, it reported that the driver for Ethernet Controller is not installed.

How do I find the driver for it?

Hi mate,

First go the manufacturer website of your laptop and find the drivers there. If it is dell enter the model number and the service tag number. Then install the drivers accordingly.

If you to find which company is your driver. Right click on ethernet controller , go to details, from the drop down list select the hardward ids and note the 4 characters following VEN and DEV. and find enter at www.pcidatabase.com .

But first load the drivers from the manufacture website. That should solve it.

Ethernet controller will show up for both a wired or a wireless connection on some systems. What make and model PC do you have? Does it have wireless capability? Can you connect to the internet with a wired connection?

I'll try to download the driver I found at the manufacturer's website.

My PC's a Fujitsu-Siemens Celsius R610. It only has wireless when I attach my USB Wi-FI Adapter. But I haven't tried to connect to the internet using wired.

Soooo...you have a wireless and a wired connection capability.

Are the drivers for either installed?

It matters not whether you have attempted to connect to the Interent with both devices...once sensed/recognized by Windows, the need for drivers will be reflected in Device Manager (unless the onboard NIC is disabled in the BIOS).

The USB adapter has its own drivers which need to be installed.
