Network Adaptor Support Presario 5150

I'm trying to setup a network that includes a Presario 5150 running XP Home. The NIC is not being recognized by XP. Anyway to get around this or to update the drivers?

Re: Network Adaptor Support Presario 5150

It appears that the 5150 used a Netelligent 82558 Unshielded Twisted Pair 10/100 PCI NIC. You can try the Add Hardware icon in Control Panel and tell it that you want to select from the menu and then try and find a Compaq Netelligent network adapter. The card is on the Compatibility List so you shouldn't need a different driver.

You can also try the Intel version of the driver at:

Re: Network Adaptor Support Presario 5150

Well, I tried all that and still no luck. To cut the frustration level down I simply installed a cheap new Belkin 10/100 card and the machine is back online. Thanks for your help.
