Hi'a again.....2nd post for the night as I can't find anything to help me under google. I did google up what an ethernet controller is, didn't understand much of it, but gather it has something to do with networks? I only have one pc, and no network. When I open up device manager, there is that big old yellow questionmark beside the Ethernet Controller listing. When I double click it, the properties box tells me that the drivers for the device are not installed. Now I'm wondering do I need to install drivers for this controller if I'm not on a network? Under "Use this device" "Enabled" is selected. Do I need to change anything here? Thanks a lot guys, I appreciate your expertise. Me Now, to pay for your help, I shall endevour to find a post that I can help with...lol. Fat chance I say.
