Missing driver in Device Manager

I have just formatted and re-install windows XP. I was able to get most required drivers install, however, checking device manager, i see one that is unidentified.  It is " Other Device" - "network controller". What is this missing driver, I believe i have installed lan driver..What am i missing, or what do i need to resolve this. The pc works fine with out it, able to connect to internet fine.


Thanks in advnace for your advice and comments
