Wanted: 3com (Etherlink XL 10/100 PCI nic) network adapter driver

3com Etherlink XL 10/100 PCI
Microsoft Windows XP

Hello. 

I would like to get help for my problem.  I have an old PC (Pentium III clone)that I'm trying to revive. It does not have any onboard network adapter but has a pci 3COM etherlink XL 10/100 .  I tried getting the driver throught the internet but no luck.  And a number of sites that I went through has an external download site and when I clicked it directs me to HP.  I finally found a site that said that HP has acquired 3Com last 2010.

 

So my question is: does HP have a driver for my network pci adapter for Windows XP?  If yes, can you possibly direct me the download page?  thank you for any help on this request.

Hi:

Or this one...

You may have to manually install the drivers.

 

I haven't disassembled the files to see how one needs to install the drivers.  A lot of those old drivers don't automatically install and you have to install the drivers from the device driver update tab.

Thanks a lot Paul.  I will try your suggestions.  It's ok, I've had experience manually installing drivers using device manager. I will post feedback on the result. Again thanks.
