I stupidly installed xp on my acer aspire 9300, unknowing that they do not support xp

Huge problem being, that none of the drivers are reconised...

My main concern is getting the internet so i can solve the problem myself.. I need the "ethernet controller" driver i think,

I tried to install driver detective, but of course it couldnt scan because it needs to connect to the internet to complete it..

I am connected with a netgear wireless router..

I just want the internet driver so that i can recover all the other ones with tedious processes, which i have the time to do.. But this is not my computer, so i need to burn the main ones onto a disk.

Any help would be very very much appreciated.

-its the wireless card driver i think
