hey own....look in your mb box there should be a driver cd. install the mb chipset driver first then reboot. then on the cd install the audio and network drivers. you may have to reboot again for the realtek drivers to install.

under "Lan" download both the intel and gigabit downloads, run them on that machine

use a usb stick, external hard drive, or burn them to a dvd

Based on this download page, which LAN Driver version did you install? Nevermind. Too slow in my response. That's what I get for watching Jeopardy.

Ok. Assuming Version 17.2.0.0, you should open the ZIP file (windows explorer), find the setup program (setup.exe) and execute that file. That *should* resolve your immediate issues.

put it on a flash drive or something, plug it into the computer that needs it. there should be a file called setup or something.

if not you have to go into your devices in the control panel, find the ethernet listing and right click on it and go to update drivers. then direct it to that folder.

Ok. If you're currently using your wireless connection, is the LAN connection enabled under Network Connections?

it says there's a problem because it says "device driver was not successfully installed" because of "no driver found"

ok, i figured out what's going on.. i think... i installed the drivers, but the little ballon on the bottom right said it tried to install driver software (like it says when you stick in a usb drive) and it failed the first time.. but i dont know how to get it to install again now that i have my drivers installed... should i reboot?

try what these guys are saying, problem could be that your wireless is using your assigned ip kinda thing.

i didnt realize you were on the computer that the ethernet wasnt working on, with wireless. so what they are saying might work

own look under add/remove programs look for intel when you install there intel driver package it puts a safe networking program onto the system that slows the system down. if you use msconfig and turn the intel safe software off your net speeds will be fine.
