Network Adapter/Ethernet Controller

Hello, I did a clean XP clean install on a older computer and when I installed my Network Adapter (Extreme N DWA-552), and yes, I did install the physical card first, I managed to install the drivers, but, the ethernet controller that was(?) already on the computer is showing up as new hardware and I can't seem to get rid of it (tried uninstalling the ethernet controller out of device manager), but, it keeps showing up on restart......................

    I am still having trouble with this! My Extreme N router upstairs is a DLink DIR-615 and the wireless Extreme N adapter is a DWA-552. There isn't any problem using these two together is there?? Thanks for your help, I appreciate it!

Nothing wrong with having two network adapters installed on your computer. If you have this DWA-552 wireless adapter installed as well as an onboard NIC, the correct thing to do is have both drivers installed so you see them both in your Control Panel->Network Connections window.

If you really want the onboard nic to go away, go into device manager and disable it - not uninstall it.

Need instruction on ethernet adapter


first:
there's no specific network card you should get, although you probably may want to make sure you get one that support fast ethernet and gigabit ethernet. make sure also is pci card (most of them are), the other part depends on your budget, netgear, linksys, dlinks are all great brands but the one you pick doesn't have to be.
check some options here

second:

this is how to install a nic card (network adapter / network card)

Installing Network Card
  • First step is to read the users guide and familiarize yourself with the new card.
  • Power down PC and remove the AC power cord.
  • Open the computer case.
  • Find an available Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) slot on the motherboard and remove slot insert if one exists.
  • Carefully remove the network card from its static-proof plastic envelope, and slide it into the slot.
    • Seat the card in the slot firmly with gentle pressure along the length of the card, especially right about the slot itself.
    • Snugly, screw the card to the computer frame, but do not over tighten.
  • Close the computer case.
  • Plug your computer in and power it up.
2Follow this procedure to verify Windows XP recognizes the new card.
  • Click Start, then click Control Panel.
  • In Category View (vs. Classic View) click Performance and Maintenance.
  • Click "System" icon at bottom of window.
  • Click the Hardware tab.
  • Click the Device Manager button.
  • Double-click Network Adapters.
    • Beneath it should appear the name of your Ethernet card.
  • Next, double click the name of your Ethernet adapter.
    • If the text in the "Device Status" box says "This device is working properly.", then you successfully installed the card and are finished.
    • If the text in the "Device status" box doesn't say "This device is working properly.", then write down on a piece of paper what it says and continue with next step.
