View Full Version : XP Home Network Controller problem...

10-08-2008, 12:09:13
I just reinstalled Windows XP Home on my old Evesham laptop, and everything worked fine except for wireless internet (plugged in is fine). In the hardware manager thing Network Controller has a yellow question mark next to it, and when I try to reinstall it's drivers from the drivers disk that came with it it can't find the correct ones. What should I do next?

Download newer drivers off the net?

But I don't know how to find out what kind of network controller it is.

Have you tried deleting it from the list and have it re-detect?

Usually you can check by unscrewing one of the bottom panels from the laptop. The wireless card will have which model it is wrote on it somewhere.

Yup, that's solved it. Thanks Matt (and Scabby).
