Ethernet Not Found

Specs: Windows XP
Hi There Folks

I've just done a fresh install of Windows XP Pro. I've then used a programme to find all the drivers required for my PC.

However, it claims to have found and installed all the drivers. But when i go to network connections, I can only connect to my wireless network (i have a wireless network card installed in my pc). I can't connect to the internet via the ethernet cable - i'm guessing because the pc can't find the ehernet card driver.

In My Computer > Properties > Hardware > Device Manager > Network Adaptor....

It only dislplays a wireless network adaptor


n My Computer > Properties > Hardware > Device Manager >Other Devices...

I get a yellow Question Mark next to "Other PCI Bridge Device". I'm guessing that this is the unidentified ethernet device. Right-clicking and "updating driver" doesn't work, and searching for driver from xp disk doesn't work either.

The driver appears to have been installed, but it isn't being picked up - the driver is called nvdia.net 07/30/2009 73.1.4.

I'd be extremely grateful if somebody could shed some light on this.

Hope you can help

Hi

Thanks for the reply.

I installed these components - but after right clicking again in Device Manager and trying to "Update Driver", i got the message "Cannot install this hardware - the hardware was not installed because the wizard cannot find the necessary software".

:-(
