    Unhappy My network adapter is not working on winXP

    I was on WindowsME with network adapter Realtek rtl-8139d. After I upgrated to WIndowsXP my adapter doestn't show up n I can't connect to the internet. I tried installing it with updates from various sites but it is not good. I did not uninstall the previous old driver but installed the new one on top of it.

    Then I switched back to windowsME and the network adapter is working fine. I want to run on windownsXp Can you pls tell me what could be the problem.

    HI and I hope you realize this is the Ubuntu forums and not windows. With that being said I would start with the manufactures website as they may have a patch for XP and the nic card.

    The drivers you need are located here:

    Also, uninstall the ME driver before installing the XP driver.
