Ethernet Controller driver for Windows Server 2012 x64

I just installed Windows Server 2012 x64 for testing purposes and the first wall that I hit was the Ethernet Controller's driver.

I don't have the Motherboard's original CD but I was able to get the Network Adapter's model number (WG82579V) and I did a quick search on google and found it on Intel's website

I think that's the correct driver however when I try to install it on the server it doesn't detect it.

I'm positive that the version that I downloaded is a 64-bit version.

I have no idea what to do now.

  1. Have you tried the motherboard manufacturer's website?
  2. Yes, it's an Intel motherboard. I downloaded the driver but it won't detect anything.

    This is mine - Intel® 82579V Gigabit Network Connection
    If there isn't a driver for it, what should I do?

    Thank you. But the drivers CD that I have doesn't contain e1c63x64.inf it contains e1c62x64.inf and I don't think it's the right version so I'm gonna use the standalone driver that I've downloaded from Intel's page and edit its .inf file.
