I have an Acer Aspire 4710Z which came with Vista. Unfortunately, I couldn't connect to work using Vista, so I've had to instal XP Pro. The copy I had was quite old and doesn't have any service packs (2002 ver)
Unfortunately, XP hasn't installed any drivers for the ethernet controller or the network controller (or quite a few other things).
The main issue is the ethernet controller (I'm assuming) because without this, I can't connect to my broadband and therefore cannot download all the patches etc to bring my system reasonably up to date.
- Is there a driver that I can download for this laptop that will allow me to connect to my router/broadband?
- Do I need a Network Controller driver as well (all my "other devices" are showing ?! in the device manager)
I hope I've posted this in the correct forum topic - I wasn't sure if it was XP or Network (or neither).
Any suggestions or help would be appreciated.
