Hi everyone, I'm no stranger to Tom's Hardware, but I am brand new to the forums here. This is my first time posting, and I really need your help. Here's my story...

I reformatted my hard drive, and installed a slightly older copy of Windows XP Professional because I lost the original XP disk that I was given by the guys who built my pc. All my device drivers work fine, except my onboard ethernet controller. It's an Intel ProSet 1000 CT and when I install the drivers that I downloaded from Intel.com, Windows recognizes the actual network card, but not the controller. Shouldn't the drivers install the ethernet controller and the card as well? Oh, also, my mobo is an Intel D865PERL... could I be using the wrong device drivers for a different mobo?

Please, any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
