There are umpteen numbers of various DV6700's...the only model number I show on mine is DV6700....yet, the driver info does not list a wired driver..only wireless. I need the 'car' manufacturer and the driver for windows XP. How and where do I get this information? (My hard drive failed and I had to install Windows XP Pro, cold, from a Microsoft CD and it did not have any laptop drivers that were recognized by my laptop.)
Thanks in advance

Really there are only 2 versions, Intel and AMD. If you have AMD the network card is driven by the chipset driver for the nVidia chipset which you can get for Windows XP:
Everything you need is explained here:
Look in the "difficult models"

Well...my dyslexia is working overtime......my laptop is an HP DV9700, and it IS AMD powered. So the question remains the same, but the model of laptop is different.
I appreciate the prompt reply I already received on an incorrect model number...I will hold my breath that Huffer will answer this as quickly.
Again...many thanks in advance

dv9700 and dv6700 share pretty much the same hardware so my answer is correct as far as I know. Install the nVidia chipset driver under "difficult models" and if that does not work go into the device manager and under advanced properties of the device that does not have a driver get the device id which will look something like this:
Post your id for your unknown device and we can find a driver for you
