search for any strings of numbers you can find, they may be part numbers.

What OS? Maybe a newer one might recognize it?

Now I'm not at my XP machine right now, but you can try going into network connections, right-clicking on the connection (if it's listed) and hitting properties. There ought to be a field there listing information about the NIC.

If it isn't listed in network connections, let us know what controller is on the board, and we can look around for nics which use that specific controller.

if you take out the nic it self. On the card there will be a big black thing with letters and numbers. Post them. or search them your self using google or driverguide

Somewhere on that card is a FCC ID#, you have to register at this site but I believe you can search for drivers even by the FCC ID#<A HREF="" target="_new">;/A>
