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!!
