    So I bought a wireless adaptor for my desktop, it requires a USB2.0 connection, so I was forced to buy a card....well the asshats who designed the driver for it require SP1.

    So...I have a PC that needs SP1 to install the internet on it, so using Windows Update is out. I've tried to download SP1 express AND the IT version of SP2 from Microsoft's website but everytime I try I get Page Not Found errors in IE and Opera with all firewalls and etc off.

    I've been searching and searching and I can't find an alternate download for this anywhere. It's like a 30mb file... Is there anyone out there that knows of a site for this, or even better, has one hosted someone that I can grab?

    Thanks!

    Use an ethernet connection to your router or a USB connection to your modem and use Windows update.

    If you have a wireless router, then you have a wireless router with ethernet ports on it. Plug your computer into it directly, download the past four years of updates, and then use your wireless card.

    Who doesn't have SP2, let alone SP1, nowadays?

    I think you misunderstood.

    I don't have access to an internet connection that isn't wireless. Through my laptop I connect to the buildings AP. Yes, I have a wireless router but I can't connect to a wireless AP with it, I'm pretty sure that's not possible either.

    To answer your question...My copy of XP for that system is Windows XP Home OEM, I bought it years ago with the PC. The PC had a harddisk failure and I had to reformat it, so I'm at a clean slate on an install without SP1 or 2...

    No one answered my question, is there a download for SP1 or 2 that isn't Windows Update? Could someone host it? Thanks.
