    Uninstall the driver if it's in the Add Remove Programs list, go into System in the control panel, click on Hardware then Device Manager and right click on the Network Adapter and uninstall. Restart the computer, turn off any Anti-Virus/Security Suite software you have running and run the install for the Network Adapter and complete the installation. Here are the drivers if you need them:

    How about you pay me $29.99 to punch you in the mouth?

    If you going to refer people to a pay site, dont you think you should at least warn them first....ahhh duhhh

    not to mention theres about 10,000 other ways to obtain these drivers which are totally free. Just cause your not bright enough to find them for free is no reason to send people to a pay site. If that is in fact the case you may just want to keep your mouth shut rather then pad your post!!!!!!!!

    Geezzzzzz

    only reg for this reply.... as it is very frustrating when your 'upgrading' from vista to xp and your in need of drivers. Then some noob sends you on a paid while goose chase.....

    Thanks!
