Compaq Presario 5400US - need network drivers for XP Home Edition. Wired connection.

It woun't connect to internet using a good modem and cable (other PC connect successfully using this same equipment). When I type IPCONFIG, I get 2 results, one for Local Area Connection2 for LAC3. Two of them have IP addresses. Both Suffixes DNS blank and empty default gateways.

When I go into network connections, the LAC2 says "Limited or no connectivity", but it lists a Linksys LNE 100TX Fast Ethernet Adapter. Linksys? I don't have any Linksys product. LAC3 says 'Connected' with the help of a WAN network driver. However, in the Notification area network connections has the same yellow triangle as LAC2. When I right click the icon in the Notification area and select "Repair" I always get the following ".." following action cannot be completed: renewing your IP address.

If I right click LAC3 (the one that says 'Connected'), click Properties, click TCP. IP and select Properties, it is set to get an IP address and an address of DNS server automatically. It is also the same for LAC2.

Client DHCP, DNS Client and call the CPP are started.

I tried ipconfig/release, ipconfig/registerdns, ipconfig/flushdns, netsh winsock reset. When I run it ipconfig / renew I get messages (after he is sitting there for 2 minutes)
An error occurred during renewal of the Local 2 network connection interface: unable to contact your DHCP server. Request timed out...
An error occurred during renewal of the Local 2 network connection interface: unable to contact your DHCP server. Request timed out...

A run chkdsk /r have run the command netsh int ip reset reset.log.

So, I went 2 network cards, restarted in the device and removed Manager and let Windows reinstall. Windows creates a new connection to the Local network (LAC4, 2 and 3 are gone). It only reads limited connectivity or none and is using Linksys LNE 100TX Fast Ethernet Adapter, like the previous LAC2. The previous LAC3, who uses the network never got WAN driver reinstalled. I don't understand.

Since an adapter Linksys on a wired connection seemed odd I have tried to find what should be the correct network driver.

I google "Compaq Presario 5400US" "driver ethernet" OR "network driver" and was taken to a page of drivers HP, which I think makes sense since HP now owns Compaq
This page has nothing listed for network or chipset cards.  This, of course, has no meaning for me.

Can anyone help?


Select this version from the drop-down list on the link that I posted above.

Depending on the size of file, it does not resemble an auto install file. Accept the agreement and unzip the file into a folder.

So, download it to a folder and go to Device Manager.

Click the network card in need of drivers, and then select manual search for drivers. Navigate to the folder where you extracted the drivers and the driver should install.
