The support site is only for xp, perhaps you can get generic drivers for it with Drivermax. http://www.drivermax.com/


But you will need to have  a usb wireless device installed to get onto the net to have drivermax check for the spftware, and then there is no gurantee.


Also since only xp is supported then you will be missing other drivers as well, most important is the chipset or Smbuss driver without this driver installed no others will work as they should.


Can you post the log created by unknown device ID please. :)




I do not think this is going to be possible, but there is a slight chance that you might be able to find a generic driver but the stabilty of the machines daily operations come into question.

Also you should keep in mind that you need at least 3 gigs or ram to run win 7 without issue, I prefer to have 4 gigs.


On the other hand you may find a driver and have no issue what so ever, I am just letting you know what you are up against.

According to the Motherboard specs for your computer, it has a Realtek® RTL8201CL LAN PHY Fast Ethernet LAN controller.
You can get the Win 7 driver from the Realtek site: ReakTek - Software: Drivers & Utilities
