I trierd to lok up you computer at the Gateway website but lacked the model number in order to see it it had an ethernet car alread installed on the mother board. If you done;l have one then you purchase any  current brand PCI  Gb ether net card. After that is installed, then contact either the phone company or the cable company for the modem and subscription service they will provide. If you have it on you computer already,it wil be on the back a little bigger hole than you present phone cord goes into. Additionally if it is there,and you can see from the manual available from the website for your model,the it will have to be turned on in the BIOS, whos instruction you wil also find in the manual. I hope I helped and not caused you additional confusion.

KV8-X motherboard. I have a network card installed, but I keep getting new hardware found for ethernet. I try to disable the ethernet card via system. I can't connect to internet.


If you are trying to connect through a modem/router you it should have come with a disk then
you might have to connect the usb lead to your modem to get a connection then
click start control panel,administrive tools,computer management,device manager scroll to network adapters should see a yellow question mark? right click install drivers
the driver might be on the disc supplied by your ISP internet service provider
or the motherboard disc
hope this helps or you could download

Install drivers for ethernet card or buy a usb to ethernet adapter. That will get you on the net so you can install your other drivers via thinkvantage installer. Or you can just cruise the net with the usb to ethernet adapter itself.

Gateway 510 X Desktop


card or usb connector will both work. once you have installed the router software, you'll need to install the card software as well. the usb may also have software, but i don't have one so i'm not positive, but it's highly like;y in order to secure the network.
this should help guide you.

Cannot obtain internet


if you already have an ethernet card installed in the laptop, then it should be fine. did you try rebooting the modem that you are hooking the laptop to? Sometimes with different ISPs that is one of the major issues.
