network drivers

yes it was found under vista and it is Ethernet 10/100BT integrated network interface
Why don't you check out, do a free scan and post the results here?

That site will state what kind you Ethnernet connection is, and what driver it needs.
windows xp should have the driver for it. Try upgrading the driver from the disk ...
try first one - (3C3FE574BT) 3Com® 10/100 LAN Type III PC Card
I'm assuming you can get online with that laptop using wifi?

Rather interesting that HP doesn't offer a download under XP for the LAN connection. But here are a few things you could try -

HP Software update - updates software and drivers (not sure if it has the ability to recognize non-installed hardware and update it but worth a shot)

Maybe try to verify your model to be sure we are also looking at the correct one?

The model you specify offers downloads for Windows 2000/XP/Vista - so downgrading shouldn't be an issue from a support perspective. I have to believe though that with them not offering a download, it should be built into XP or available via Microsoft Update/Windows Update.

What is the status of your device in device manager - yellow exclamation or question mark?
According to HP there are issues with the motherboard. for Network cards and wireless. They will replace for free. :)
