intel 82801db lan controller

After I formatted my drive and reinstalled Win XP, the networkdriver was deleted. As this is an old computer built by myself, i do not have any drivers on CD. I foun out that the driver I need is "intel 82801db lan controller" but can't seem to find it anywhere? Where can I download the driver?

I do not recognize that model number, but if the Ethernet controller is an Intel controller then you should be able to use this file:

I hope this helps.

I have very much the same driver problem.

But the link in the above post is dead.

Various utilities tell me that I need a driver for a "Intel Corporation 82801DB/DBL LAN Controller with 82562ET/EZ (CNR) PHY (ICH4/ICH4-L A1 step)".

But even for somebody who knows computers like myself, that flies straight over my head.

Thanks.

I too had this problem.

It does say on that page "Visit Download Center to search for downloads." Which is itself a link, which takes you to http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Default.aspx?lang=eng http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Default.aspx?lang=eng I searched for "Network Adapter Drivers for Windows XP"

Which brings up a number of options

in my case I wanted Windows XP 32-bit which was the first one.

Network Adapter Drivers for Windows XP*

Installs network drivers. Includes Intel® PROSet for Windows Device Manager*, advanced networking services (ANS) for teaming and VLANs, and SNMP.

You can download both the 32 & 64 bit drivers here: - http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=18717&keyword=%22Network+Adapter+Driv... http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=18717&keyword=%22Network+Adapter+Driv...

I downloaded the 32 bit version called PROWin32.exe

Ran that and then I was able to connect to the net without any further problems.

I want to say I TOTALLY I agree with the post above.

The link http://downloadcenter.intel.com/confirm.aspx?httpDown=http://downloadmirror.intel.com/18717/eng/PROW... http://downloadcenter.intel.com/confirm.aspx?httpDown=http://downloadmirror.intel.com/18717/eng/PROW...

Works well for the Win XP ethernet controller driver.. I to used the 32bit.

Thank you, I downloaded this Ray and it worked. I did get a dll error so had to upgrade to SP2, then it worked.

I had been trying other Intel downloads, but none worked until I found your link.

Thanks for the help.

This was an older Dell that I restored and getting ready to give to Goodwill.
