HP dc7600 xp -- install hardware cannot find ethernet controller drivers after clean xp install

 

Should I buy a usb to ethernet so win xp can go online to find the drivers.

 

We looked at the id on the physical ethernet, but search online came up zero.

Hi:

 

Your PC should have the Broadcom ethernet controller.

 

Please go to the device manager and click on the ethernet controller needing drivers.

 

Then click on the details tab.

 

Post the top string of characters you see.

 

Those will identify the model of the ethernet controller you have and I will send you the link to the drivers you need.
