NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller Issues

I have a hand built system running Windows XP sp3. It didn't recognize one of the drivers that was trying to update and suggested that I uninstall it and then try to re-install it. In doing so, it made it so I can't access the internet. Upon diagnosis of the problem, I found that it had deactivated and uninstalled my NVIDIA nForce networking controller. When I tried to re-install it, it said I needed an installation disc. I don't have a disc, so I contacted NVIDIA. They informed me that they do not offer support for that controller when part of a motherboard, and suggested that I contact Microsoft. Can anyone help me locate an istallation disc, or suggest what I might do to make it work?

You can probably download the drivers from your computer's support page.

Or may this will work for you, http://download.cnet.com/NVIDIA-nForce-Networking-Controller/3000-2112_4-143144.html

If during the installation it offers to install the nVidia firewall. SKIP it.
