XP won't connect to internet

I did a clean install of XP Home on a Velocity Micro desktop computer and I now cannot connect to the internet. Not sure if I'm missing drivers and I can't see any home networked computers. Has anyone had this problem? The computer is about six months old and came loaded with Vista which I did not want.

Any tips on where to find the missing drivers? I have a MAC that can access the net and download files.

Sorry no. Why?

Here's what you supplied. "Velocity Micro desktop computer"

Sorry but if you are expecting members to help in your driver search you may have to provide more detail. From memory didn't they give you driver CDs?

Thank You

Thanks for jogging my memory. I did indeed have discs that came with the computer and was able to install the needed drivers. Sometimes it's the little things.

Happy Holidays.
