I just did a fresh xp install on my desktop & now its not detecting the ethernet when I try to connect my Comcast modem. When I go to device manager theres a yellow ? & ! Next to other devices / ethernet. It tells me theres no driver installed. So I open my tower to try & find out what ethernet card I have & all I see is JMF25U13-7103W. I've googled that to find the driver I need to download & I can't find a link that works or doesn't give me the run around. Can someone tell me where to find this driver? Or will this even fix my problem of the ethernet not being detected? Please & thank you!

Hello,

Is the ethernet device integrated onto the motherboard or is it a separate card?

If it is a motherboard, please provide the model number in your reply.

I searched for that code and this thread is the only Google result haha!

Sorry for the delay,

Apparently it's an Intel ethernet adapter although I'm unsure as to which model. After some searching tricks I have found that JFM25U13-7103W brings up a lot of hits, with the M and F switched around. As I said, I found one thread on the Dell forums which identified it as an Intel adapter. Other search results relate it to Foxconn however I can't see anything like it on the Foxconn website, so I doubt this.

Your best bet would be to add it to a computer which is already connected to the internet and see if it installs by checking online with Microsoft Updates. Often this will pick up drivers, not always 100% but probably worth a shot.
