I have a Dell Latitude D810 and after a reinstall of XP, I am also reinstalling the drivers.
Some of the drivers I obtained from the Dell website here:
For others, I was able to install through Windows Update.
I am having trouble with two devices. When I open the Device Manager, there are two devices that have a yellow question mark:
- Network Controller
- PCI Simple Communications Controller
I have tried installing them through Windows Update, which doesn't work, and I can't seem to find them on Dell's Driver Download page.
I am confused about the "network controller" because I always thought that was another name for "Network Adapter". The Network Adapter driver is
installed correctly and is labeled as a "Broadcom NetXtreme 57xx Gigabit Controller."
Are the drivers for these devices present on the Dell website I listed above? If so, which one? Also, what is the difference between a "Network Adapter" aka NIC and a Network Controller?
