    WinXP can find network hardware

    I'm running the latest build of Parallels on my Macbook. It was working fine until a Windows update this morning. After the required reboot there is no network connection from WinXP. Looking at the network icon at the bottom of the window, it says :

    Mode: Realtek 80229 (AS) Bridged Ethernet
    Name: Default Adapter
    Status: Connected

    Windows can't find any network hardware and the Network Wizard fails.

    I seem to remember I had this same problem during the initial WinXP install and found some
    instructions on how to add the correct network drivers from Paralles to my WinXP installtion.

    I can't find the "magic" seach query to locate these instructions again. Does anyone have either a thred I can look at to find the instructions again?

    Thanks

    You might have to uninstall/reinstall the Parallels tools. If I remember correctly the tools contain the network drivers.
