XP Driver for Broadcom 4410 NIC card / EXE file required

This is for a customer. I fix PCs for a living.

Please provide a link to a **EXE FILE** that installs the Win XP 32 bit driver for the Broadcom 4401 NIC card.

Please note the Dell website for drivers for this has been down for about an hour . I have never seen this in 6 years of being in business. (It is the ethernet driver for the Dell Dimension 2400 and probably other dell models. The link leaves HTTP and goes to an FTP download and then does not resolve)

Please note that the Broadcom site ONLY provides a folder with the inf and sys files NOT AN EXE FILE that installs it.

Google search leads nowhere except places that CHARGE you to join their cluib to get drivers.

ONLY Reply if you have the exe file. Do NOT tell me how to use the sys and inf files. I have the general idea how to use them but the EXE file is much easier and ALWAYS works.

If you have the exe file on a HD or whatever and no link, please reply and I will give you my email address (assuming is it less than 10 MB in size) and you can email it as an attachment.

Regards,
   Mike

I was able to download the file from the site, but now the site isn't loading again.  I can email it to you.  It is only 6.6 MB

OTHER EE EXPERTS, I still prefer a link.

Techn9cian:

Thanks for your quick reply.

Please email it to mgross333(AT) yahoo.com . Your link is not working again.

ALSO how sure are you you downloaded the correct driver ? Did you go to Dell Dimension 2400 support and then drivers (that much works and but only sometimes at the moment) and that is how you got it ???? And also checked it was for 32 bit XP ?

Please reply on how you got to the page to download the driver as above. Because if you email it and it is for Vista 32 bit it will not help me or even for a Different dell model (allthough I suspect that might work BUT I WOULD APPREICATE AN ANSWER on the details).

Actually, I just searched for the driver, but when I run it the Dimension is not listed so it will probably need a different file than the one I was able to download.  Sorry.
