Can't find networking drivers after fresh XP install


Beta member
Hello there. I recently ran DBAN on my mother's computer because she was complaining it was slow, turns out it was heavily infected. Nothing a mere antivirus could fix. After DBAN finished I did a fresh install of windows XP.

Now when I try to setup a network connection, the wizard says it cannot find the networking hardware drivers. It's a Toshiba laptop, so I went through their site and download and install any and every driver that had anything to do with networking/internet for the laptop model and windows xp and I still get nothing.

Where do I find the networking drivers? The computer is a Toshiba Satellite A205 with Windows XP SP3.

Here is a easy way to find the drivers. Search online the hardware id for the device. The example has them boxed in red.
