Xircom® Products
Support for Xircom® products in Windows XP*

Windows XP* support for a given Xircom® product falls into one of three categories, depending on the product in question. These categories are defined as follows:

  • Xircom drivers for Windows XP
    Products for which Windows XP specific drivers have been developed and are available from the Intel Web site. Drivers for XP are not being developed for most Xircom products. Xircom products for which XP* drivers have been developed are noted in the table below.

  • Microsoft drivers included with Windows XP
    Products for which drivers are incorporated by Microsoft, and are included as part of the Windows XP operating system. In most cases, the products should install and function without any difficulty using these built-in drivers. These drivers have not been tested by Intel. If Xircom drivers are available for your product, then only those drivers are supported with your product.

  • Products for which no drivers or support Is available
Note Windows 2000* Drivers may work in Windows XP
If specific Windows XP drivers are not available for a given product, try the NDIS5 drivers that are intended for use with Windows 2000. Some drivers can operate successfully in Windows XP. These drivers have not been tested in Windows XP, the results are not guaranteed, and this configuration is not supported.

Technical support
These products are no longer being manufactured by Intel. Additionally, Intel no longer provides interactive support for these products via telephone or e-mail, nor will Intel provide any future software updates to support new operating systems or improve compatibility with third party devices and software products.

Troubleshooting tips

Below are common situations in which difficulty with these products under Windows XP can be encountered:
  • Lack of proper system BIOS support for Windows XP. Contact your computer manufacturer for information on possible system BIOS upgrades or other modifications that can be required for Windows XP to run on your system.
  • Lack of support for ACPI power management. Check with your computer manufacturer for information about patches or changes that can be required to fully support ACPI.
  • Lack of available resources (especially free interrupts) to support more hardware. Some systems can be configured so that all available resources are already in use. In such cases, disabling certain embedded devices in the system BIOS (such as Infra-red ports or other serial devices) can free up resources for use by other devices.

1 This connection kit uses no drivers. It should work as long as the Xircom card it attaches to works in Windows XP.
