I didn't include any information about my system but you should know what I am thinking anyway. Right?

"you have a solution to my problem?"

We're not mind readers. You didn't include a single bit of info about your computer or your network controller. To be able to find drivers, you (or we) need to know the exact make/model of the controller.

And since you just reinstalled XP, there are numerous other drivers you should install as well. Windows will install generic drivers (if it has them) but to get full use of your hardware, you need to install the 'real' drivers. You'll need them for the motherboard chipset, video, sound & possibly other devices.

It is ironic that you don't understand. That was just my point. No information makes your question ironic. I responded in the same hue.

Wow... what is a tough free online technical support....

jca, what I suggest you to do is go to your system manufacture website, go to support drivers download and search for your system drivers...

Good Luck

How could you not notice the one file to download under "network" and the one file under "wireless"?

This your sense of humor :-)?

isn't it comedian as in I am the only one? Gee aren't you being hypersensitive? All I said is you didn't appear to get the joke I was making. I think Jam did but then he's an old timer to these forums at almost 25,000 post compared to my paltry 13,000.

so you double clicked on the file and you got a program window asking to install the driver? You were logged in under an admin account? It installed and you clicked on "finish"?

After this you still see a yellow exclaimation point next to the nic in device manager? Same with the wireless install?

Please answer the questions in #15 so I can check those off my list. Thx.

run chkdsk /f on your drive, answer yes to the question and reboot for it to run. This will check for disk corruption.
Then redownload the file and check the byte count to make sure its all there.
Then try again.

You are sure you have the PCV-RS310? This is a built in nic and not a pcmcia card?

Any issues installing the wireless nic?
In the bios, the onboard nic is set to enabled?
