Have you tried to delete the NIC from the Device Manager and allow XP to discover it when you boot? At this point you would just install as a new device.

I use device manager to uninstall the driver and reboot computer, the xp found the device and install the driver automatically, but still the same.

Have you run the New Connection Wizard since the upgrade?

You need a driver. This is a link to the manufacturers web site and directly to the driver download:
