VirtualBox - No Network Adapter on Windows XP

I had an issue with a guest Windows XP in a virtual machine. It could not recognize neither of the network cards (NICs) offered by VirtualBox.
Here are the links for Intel, and AMD network card drivers. I used the driver (available here) and everything was alright after the driver installation.
Funny the driver was not available on the manufacturer's site for Windows 2008 Server.

Source for the links - here.

Thanks for collecting the links.
It's a shame that Innotek/Sun/Oracle can't redistribute the drivers on their VirtualBoxTool InstallCD.

Allen - I have installed VirtualBox on my mac (Mountain Lion) with win XP as a guest. I am not able to connect to internet...do I need to install these drivers or are these for Windows host OS

Hi Tanay,

You might want to try installing these drivers in the guest OS. From what I remember, VirtualBox default network interface is one of these (Intel/AMD), depending on the main processor you have in the host.
Let us know how it went for you.

Though this post is on 2009, it still helps. Thank you so much Alen.
I had been looking for the solution about 2 days already and you saved me.
