Q: I originally got the laptop with vista business. It crashed on me one day and so i decided to reformat and downgrade to XP Pro. Install went clean. Started installing all the drivers and everything was running fine except for the network controller. It registers as an intel 82562GT. I downloaded the driver off the hp support website and i also downloaded the direct driver from Intel. I still have issues with this. The device is installed but it will not pull on IP address from the DHCP server im running off of. I can connect wirelessly perfectly fine but the ethernet connection will just not work. Any suggestions.. ... . Thanks for your time.
