I've received back an old Acer Travelmate 354 TEV formatted. I've looked for the driver for win xp pro italian version on the Acer Site and others, but i found nothing regarding the NIC.
The NIC is not a PCMCIA card, but it is (i suppose) integrated, because there is a RJ45 port on the back panel of the laptop.
Where can i find the proper driver? Do exist a tool that help u finding it?
Thanks and ciao!

DriverMax may be able to find a driver for you:

Although you didn't state what operating system, and DriverMax only runs on XP, Vista, and Server 2k3.

I've seen this program recommended, but have not used it myself:
