Re: compaq presario 6rpxe1 ethernet driver

Is this a desktop or laptop?

 

The model number is not normal.

 

What is the system model number?, e.g. Compaq Presario SRxxxxx  

 

Are you running XP, Vista or Windows 7?

Compaq Presario 6000T-6RPXE1
6000 Series Internet Desktop PC


Processor Intel Pentium 4  Willamette
Processor Support  Socket 478


Chipset
North Bridge - MCH A-3 (Intel® Brookdale 845)
South Bridge - Intel® ICH2X C0


Network Card  Integrated on board (with PXE)
Integrated 10/100 BaseT Ethernet (Intel®)
Integrated Network Adapter
Integrated Intel® ICH2/Kinnereth+ 10/100

 

That's a hard one to find, try Intel® Driver Update Utility and LAN/Network driver information and see if they help. If you can't get enough information from the computer and motherboard then try using HWiNFO32 to get the information you need (preferably the Intel® Ethernet Controller number then you can go to Intel's Download Center, select Ethernet Components > Ethernet Controllers > Intel® xxxxxx Ethernet Controller.
