Reloaded T43 with XP Pro, can't find hardware

I have a T43 that was agonizingly slow. Being a nontechnical sort (compared to you) I reloaded XP Pro (SP2) from a newly purchased distribution. I downloaded the Broadcom driver using another machine, copied it to the newly rebuilt one, and installed the driver there. The operating system still says there is no internet hardware.

 

Any suggestions?

Welcome to the forum!

 

Downloading the driver is only the first step in the process. After the download is complete, the driver must be unpacked from C>Drivers>Win>Ethernet.

 

Posting the 7-character model number of your T43 (either 26??-??? or 187?-???) would help us assist you better.

 

Good luck and keep us posted.

Cheers,

George
