Solution:

i) Click on  Start button ---->Select option Control Panel------>Select Network Connections----->

   a new window appears showing the "internet connections icon " Such as:

   Local Area Connection 1 or 2 or 3 and since you are not connected it will show this icon as:

eg1:   Local Area Connection 1 or 2 or 3
       Network Cable Unplugged, Firewalled
       VIA compatible Fast Ethernet   

   in this case u can download VIA network drivers....from internet..


       or 

  eg2:  Local Area Connection 1 or 2 or 3
          Network Cable Unplugged, Firewalled
          Realtek RTL8139 Family Fast Ethernet NIC

   in this u can download "Realtek RTL8139" network  drivers.... from internet(which is showing model    no: RTL8139 through google search engine )


                                                          (OR)


ii) Click Start button ---->Select RUN option ----> type in the text box    devmgmt.msc  --->Select Network Adapters....

but this will show wheter ur network adapter or NIC is VIA or Realtek or......but does show the correct Model NO: of VIA or Realtek....

so i would suggest to follow the step (i)



Thanking you

I got a new computer recently and im trying to switch my adapter from this comp to the other but i lost my CD and i cant get onto the internet to DL the drivers any help?


you will need to open up your network connections click start control panel network connections this may vary depending on your operating system look for local area connection if you see a red x or a yellow exclamation or question mark you will need to update or install the driver or it could be firewalled
If you are trying to connect through a modem/router the driver should have come with a disc provided by your ISP internet service provider or your motherboard disc
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 if you cant find the driver hopefully one of these will help you

I recently had to reinstall windows to my computer and i borrowed a xp disk from a friend it installed fine but i cant set up a network connection. do i need to install drivers or is it something else?


Yes, you need to install the drivers for your network adapter inside your computer. Check your device manager to see if the network adapter is missing the drivers. If it is, you'll have to download the drivers from another computer through the Internet at the manufacturers website. Use a USB flash drive to download the file and then transfer it to the computer with the missing driver. Then install it.

I recently Upgraded from Windows XP to windows 7 when Windows 7 was finished intalling internet connection did not work. Before upgrading everything worked fine.I did troubleshooting and it said ''No...


Hi
Win 7 is extremely touchy about network drivers. I didn't see your computer model listed but you'll need to log onto your computer manufacturers support page and download the Win 7 drivers for the network. Since your internet connection doesn't work right now I'd suggest another machine, if you have one or go to your local library with a Flash Drive and download the drivers to that. Good Luck

Ethernet controller and USB are missing on XP


Yes, the device-drivers can be downloaded from the Internet, to one computer, and then burned onto a CD-writable, or written to a USB memory-stick, and then the files can be physically moved to the other computer.

But, "which" device-drivers is completely dependent on which computer that you have. Some motherboards have "integrated" network-adapters and "integrated" USB-ports.

Easiest solution is to take an add-in PCI network-adapter card, and install it, and connect the Ethernet cable to its socket.
Hopefully, Windows will recognize that card, and automatically load the correct device-drivers from the C: drive, i.e., without Internet access.
Or, if you buy an add-in card, it may come with a CD-ROM that contains the device-driver.

Once the device-drivers have been installed, you will have Internet connectivity. Access: http://WindowsUpdate.Microsoft.com
and click "Custom" scan, and then click "Optional Hardware".
Windows Update should find the device-drivers for your motherboard, and install them. Then, you can remove the add-in card, and connect the Ethernet cable to the "on-mother-board" network socket.
