    Please help me to figure this problem out.
    I was like doing this for 2days and still i couldn't find the right driver for my laptop.
    I tried everything which is written on the internet but of course it did not succeed.
    I reformatted and downgrade my Laptop since i wanted to use XP. From windows 7 to windows xp, so i don't have the drivers for windows xp.

    On my Specs it says that i have Ethernet (RJ-45) port

    How could i be able to connect on the internet through router where there is a yellow mark on the ethernet. and my laptop can't recognize the cable too.

    help me. im freakin out!

    MYlaptop is GATEWAY NV54

    If your Gateway NV54 laptop came with Windows 7 pre-installed and you've downgraded it to Windows XP, it's possible that Windows XP drivers aren't available for all of its devices.

    You never want to downgrade to an older Windows version or upgrade to a newer Windows version without first confirming that drivers are available for all of the computer's devices.

    Use a working computer to browse through the download list and select the drivers that support Windows XP, then download and save them, then burn them off to a CD-R or copy them to a USB thumb drive. Once that's done, you that media to install them in your laptop. The chipset driver should be installed first.


    In the meantime, go into the Device Manager and click the + in
