I have just now installed windows XP (clean install after formatting my Hard disk) & i can't see the network adapter. Infact there is no LAN icon in taskbar. This is what i did:
1. Installed XP using my original windows CD & serial key. No issues encountered
2. Installed the CD of my Intel motherboard D915GVWB, In the programs to be installed, it just showed the Audio, Chipset utility & graphics media accelarator. Its not at all showing the LAN. Tried also by exploring the CD & installing but nothing.
Now my PC is fully functional but can't access my internet (thru wired cable).
When i check in device manager, I can't see the Network adapter in list. Then I go to show hidden items, there its visible but contains nothing about Pro V/100.
Plz suggest what needs to be done. Is it a fault of XP or my Intel motherboard. If there is any S/w or driver to be applied manually, let me know. I want to try all the options possible.
