1394 net adapter or ether driver help, xp 64 bit pro sp1 desktop.

By josephangel00 ·
I recently reimaged my desktop with windows 64 bit professional service pack 1 .

When I look at my device manager I see no Ethernet drivers were found. I had the 1394 net adapter and I uninstalled it and been searching the internet for either or both of these drivers but no luck? Do I need to installed Windows Service pack 2 64 bit professional? I unfortanetly do not have a wifi card to connect to the internet and do the windows updates. =/

Where do I get these drivers?

Any particular brand of desktop?

Or if no brand, what particular make/model of motherboard?

We assume the motherboard has on-board Ethernet?

You get "these drivers"

From the hardware manufacturer. Or buy one of these for $20 - $30

They are handy in those "no network" new PC installs.

Motherboard Drivers wanted: check your cd/dvd, you may find this

Motherboard Drivers (or Ethernet card if you plug your eth cable on another card than the motherboard) wanted ! check your motherboard cd/dvd... then run it, restart, if no more link appaers, fix your ip address, press "ok" and press "apply change when leaving", wait 1 minutes and test, if no connection switch your ip to automatic ok/apply change... wait 1min, test, should be ok.
