Mod Edit: Split from http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic441299.html - Hamluis.


Is this the one you have?

You could have a Broadcom or Intel Ethernet in that model.
One way to tell, Look at the image I attached anything Intel will show VEN_8086
If it shows a different VEN_ number try the Broadcom one.


I too have that model and that VEN but the intel installer from HP reports back no intel card. The little program from Piriform indicates no ethernet cards. Bios indicated the onboard ethernet is active and available to the OS. Perhaps I will try Ubuntu Live... but I do need XP. Any ideas?

First thing to do is make sure the Port is good.

Trying the Ubuntu Live should tell you if the Ethernet port is working or not.

Can you post the entire line that shows the Ven information.
For example one computer here shows PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1019&SUBSYS_02A71014&REV_00\4&2D894BD&0&0818

I'd like to see the whole line.

Good Luck
Roger

As I was looking up that string I thought I would try to manually update the driver from the device manager and had some joy. By bypassing the installer and going directly to the folder the installer was using, I able to get the gigabit intel nic working. YAY! I still have 3 question marked items in my Device Manager and one of them is the PCO Serial Port which I might need down the line but YAY.. I have network. (yes I did try the device manager trick on the serial Port but no joy)

Glad to see you got the Ethernet port going.

If you post the lines from the three question marked items they can be figured out.

Can you run Speccy again and post a link to the report?

Thanks
Roger
