How to Install a Network Adapter in XP?
A network adapter is required to use a broadband connection or connect to any other type of network. Most modern computers have a network adapter already installed. Older computers may need to have a network adapter added to them before using them on a network. Three common types of network adapters are internal, USB and card bus. The functionality of these adapters is identical.
1. Connect the network adaptor to the computer. For USB and card bus types, connecting the adaptor is as simple as plugging it into the slot. Internal adaptors require opening the computer casing and inserting the card into an available PCI slot on the motherboard.
2. Boot the computer and log into Windows XP. Windows XP will recognize the newly added hardware.

3. Wait for the "Found New Hardware" dialog to complete. If Windows XP has a driver for the network adaptor, the installation will complete. Otherwise, a third-party driver is required.
4. Insert the driver CD that came with the network adaptor if required by Windows XP. Click through the rest of the new hardware setup wizard to complete the installation.
5. Restart the computer if prompted by Windows XP. Once the computer has rebooted, the network adaptor is ready to use.
