I recently reloaded Windows XP onto my Inspiron E1505.  I now cannot use my ethernet port.  I have downloaded all applicable drivers using my service tag, and have installed them.  I even went through and redownloaded all on the "network" drivers.  I get the "found new hardware" in the lower right hand screen, and it is to install the ethernet controller.  I sselect, as I always do, to "install the software automatically."  When I do that, the computer tried to install the driver, but then I get a message saying "cannot install this hardware" and it continues to say "the hardware was not installed because the wizard cannot find the necessary software."  Does anyone have a solution to this?  Does anyone know which specific driver is for the ethernet controller?

 

Thanks in advance!!
