Default Can't find networking drivers after fresh XP install

Hello there. I recently ran DBAN on my mother's computer because she was complaining it was slow, turns out it was heavily infected. Nothing a mere antivirus could fix. After DBAN finished I did a fresh install of windows XP.

Now when I try to setup a network connection, the wizard says it cannot find the networking hardware drivers. It's a Toshiba laptop, so I went through their site and download and install any and every driver that had anything to do with networking/internet for the laptop model and windows xp and I still get nothing.

Where do I find the networking drivers? The computer is a Toshiba Satellite A205 with Windows XP SP3.

Here is a easy way to find the drivers. Search online the hardware id for the device. The example has them boxed in red.

A205 is only part of the model number, what is the full model number?
