  1. Hi, I just recently removed Windows 7 & installed Windows XP on my pc. But after installing XP the internet is not working. As I believe I am missing drivers. But I can't seem to find them. If someone could help me find them would be really helpful. Or if something else needs to be done to get the internet working if someone can let me know.

    I have also put up the pic of the actual drivers missing & my pc specs

    I am not that much of a techy person so easier solution would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    What is the model of your PC?

    1394 is a firewire port, I dont know why it is showing as the network adapter. Try this: Right click on the "1394 Net Adapter", go to properties, and update the driver. Tell me if that helps.

    On a side note, I don't know if it is important to mention that I am connecting the internet to this PC through a Ethernet cable which is hooked up to a Dlink Router
