Tonight I reloaded WinXP SP3 on my Compaq Presario C500 laptop (as I have done a few times before).

Now it will not connect to the internet over the network cable (I need to do that to install the wireless drivers).

Despite an hour or more of Google searching (from a different computer), I cannot find the correct driver for the network controller.

I have tried the HP/Compaq site, to no avail, along with several other likely suspects.

Can someone PLEASE point me to a proper driver pack for this laptop?

Any help is greatly appreciated.
