Does anyone have any ides or troubleshooting steps to get the NICs below to function properly? I was so happy to get the virus off but the Nic issue is killing me. Thanks in advance for looking and your help.
I have been serching for several hours on how to get network wired and wireless NICs to install correctly on the following laptop.
HP Pavilion zv5000 (PT276UA#ABA)
AMD Athlon 64 3200+
XP Home SP3
Wired NIC - Realtek RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC
Wireless - Broadcom BCM4306 802.11b/g WLAN
It was infected by the braviax / antivirus 2010 virus and has been removed successfully.
Looking in network connections nothing is displayed.
Looking in Device Manager, Network adapters are not listed but wireless and wired NICs show up as Unknown.
I have deleted/unistalled the the devices, rebooted and let the system reinstall the found drivers (i386 folder).
After rebooting they reappeared as unknown in device manager.
So on another computer I downloaded the drivers from HP, rebooted the laptop and installed the downloaded drivers.
Drivers located here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwar...product=385148#
I rebooted the laptop again and the Device manager still shows the devices as unknown.
I have confirmed the hardware using SIW and Everest Ultimate Ed (Nic info above)
