Ethernet Controller Missing after Clean XP (SP3) Install
Hi guys,

Today, I installed XP SP3 and other drivers, including Realtek AC'97 audio drivers and other drivers. But the device manager shows missing ethernet controller (in fact, it shows a yellow exclamation mark in teh entire other devices section). My motherboard is an older one (DFI NB 32 SC) (Pentium PIV processor). Please suggest the right drivers. I cannot access the Internet without the Ethernet controller.

Thanks,
Anurag

Hi Daz,

Thanks for the quick reply. Actually I am typing this message from my cousin's PC. Will check the sites you mentioned and let you know. Thanks again!

Hi Daz,

Thanks for the Useful URLs. I found the drivers for my motherboard (NB 32 SC/SL). But, I have a few questions:
1. Does Installing LAN drivers solve the ethernet controller problem?
and
2. The LAN Drivers folder does not have any setup.exe? Just a few files (.inf, .cat and .sys). Please help!

Right click on the .inf file, then click Install. Look in Device Manager under Network Adapters to verify it installed correctly.

From what I can determine, the DFI NB32-SC motherboard has an Intel 845 chipset.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Go into the Device Manager and advise what's listed in these headings:

Display Adapters

IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers

Network Adapters

Other Devices

Sound Video And Game Controllers
