    Its looking for a .inf file for you will be on the floppy disc that came with the modem...apparently XP does not have drivers for your modem.

    your network adapter is your network interface card.

    try this:

    1) uninstall the card in device manager, then shut your system down.

    2) uninstall the card from the mobo.

    3) find another open pci slot, insert the card, boot up and let xp auto-detect it.

    4) go to the manufacturer's website, download the latest drivers for your card.

    hope this works. :)

    do you need RAS PPPoE or anything like that installed, I had to have that at home for BB to work
