If you are getting a code 28 then you will need to download a new driver on another computer for the network card. If you have a wireless adapter that you can connect to the computer and your router has wireless capability then that could work as well but you will need to get a new driver on to that computer some how.
Finding the driver will be easy though. You can go to the computer's manufacturer website, or the website of the network card's manufacturer and search for it there. Shouldn't be too hard to find but if you can't find it let me know and I will get you a link.

Sounds like you need to install a separate driver for your ethernet card.
You need to get a DEDICATED internet connection to fix this
Go to control panel
then got to device manager
then from the list that pops up you should see anything that Xp will not run (yellow triangle)"network adapter"
right click on that device and the general tab screen will say if it is or is not working properly
If it is NOT, click on the 3RD tab"Driver" and click on update driver-
That should get it working.
Then redo your network and internet connections.
Hope this helps.

What kind of computer do you have?
The trick here is first to get the computer on the internet by finding out what kind of network card is installed on a internet connected computer do one of the following
1> If its a dell go to http://www.dell.com/support and click on download drivers enter your service tag number Download the network driver to a flash drive and install Connect to the internet and repeat the above process to install the other drivers.
Most manufacture websites will have a download page for the drivers but you can also google the make model and operating system drivers for example google acer aspire 1000 xp network driver.
if you post your make model and operating system I can help you better.

The Code 28 error is one of several Device Manager error codes. The Code 28 error will almost always display exactly like this:
"The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)"
Details on Device Manager error codes like Code 28 are available in the Device Status area in the device's properties: How to View a Device's Status in Device Manager.
