M55 8811 Intel Network Driver for XP?

I have a M55 8811-WDL and when I go to the drivers page, it keeps offering me a Broadcom Gigabit driver.

Only problem is, this machine seems to use an Intel network card.


I have an unknown device in Device Manager that says "Ethernet Controller" and the Vendor Code is 8086 which is Intel.


Anyone know where to get this driver or what I am doing wrong?

Re: M55 8811 Intel Network Driver for XP?

Mtype 8811 could be both M55 and M55p

The M55p came with Gigabit ethernet on planar / Intel 82566DM (PHY layer; MAC in ICH8DO) card, and the  M55 with Broadcom.

So under driver matrix go to M55p machine,not M55. This should do the trick.
