Would any of you please tell me where to find an ethernet-related driver like "broadcom", which can be used in Windows XP (64-bit) on Dell 531S?

I've been on the Dell sites, and I've realized that ethernet-related drivers are not offered for Dell 531S, but they do offer Wireless (WLAN) controllers.

Thanks in advanced for your kindness & patience. I would really appreciate any links to a website with an ethernet-related driver for that computer, which is running Windows XP (SP3) x64.

The problem I'm having with the Dell site is that: It's not showing any available drivers for the 64-bit version of XP. Would any of you know where to find the correct 64-bit XP-compatible drivers for Dell 531S. The Dell website is not showing anything, but 32-bit components for Dell 531S.

Thanks in advance for your kindness & help. I'd appreciate any advice, a link to the correct driver to download would be great. Thanks again.

What kind of Network adapter do you have?

You can use SIW to find out.
