Sorry missed that one step (hardware dropdown) here are the links.

OK...you had me worried.
Here you go...
You should be all set now, right?

Those numbers won't help me find the drivers you need.
You need to go to the device manager. Click on the network controller needing drivers. Click on the details tab.
In the Properties drop down list, select the second item (Hardware ID's).
Post the top string of characters you see.
Those will ID the model of the network controller that needs drivers.

Every device has a hardware ID like the one you see at the top of the page.
Please see if this link below with pictures is of help to you.

I take it you are using an old version of Windows XP then?
You will need to upgrade it to SP2/SP3 in order to get the hardware ID's.
Otherwise, you will need to pull the card and look for a 6 digit dash 3 digit part number (123456-001).
Maybe with that I can find out what model wireless card it is.
