I am cleaning up an old pc, and I reinstalled Win XP home, formatted the HD, etc... And now I cannot connect to the internet.
I tried various drivers and installations to find nothing is working. However, I did notice a change.
I checked under: My Computer >> Properties >> Ethernet Adapter (was a big yellow ugly sign). I tried to install drivers to no avail!
So then I downloaded (from another pc) the Intel INF installation drivers from here:
-- the only change that made was the ethernet icon now had some green in it under the My Computer properties, but still the ugly yellow sign.
I was told I need to install the Realtek driver also on that link I mentioned above, but it seems it's for Audio only??
This just sucks. What started to be a nice friendly Friday turned into another battle with my pc.
I just want to get this darn pc online!!!
Thanks for anything!
