Need Help With Advantech ARK-1388V Industrial Computer

Anyone have any experiance with Advantech mobile computers used by AT&T?  Pulled three of them from Bucket Trucks that we purchased at auction and have loaded Windows XP on them as well as the drivers from the Advantech web site but can not seem to get the LAN to work. Thanks!

if you have  unknown devices in device manager, you can use this procedure to identify them :

1-visit the motherboard manufacturers support site, for downloading drivers
2- use windows update >optional updates to find them

3-Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Information.
Now select  "Components" and highlight "Problem Devices".
All hardware devices with a driver problem will be listed here.
Make a note of the first line of the PNP Device ID line of the entry. It will show a Vendor number and a Device number (VENxxxxDEVxxxx) both four digits long.
Look up those numbers here:

This will tell you the manufacturer and the chip number.  
Check the manufacturer's website first or google them - or post them here

If your LAN is running, you can also use windows update> optional drivers, or  use slimdrivers :

LAN Chipset: 82562GZ try this one.

Turns out it was an Intel 82574L rather than the 82562GZ as the Advantech web site claimed.
