Question about EliteGroup GeForce 6100SM-M Motherboard
I've updated the bios to the latest release out in July of 2007, I've updated Windows XP Professional x64 to Service Pack 2, I've tried every concievable bios settings possible (custom, optimized & fail safe)nothing seems to make it work right.. -Everything else works great on the system all other devices where found and updated, BUT the onboard Network Adapter (which is visible in the bios) is not being found by windows. ECS's cracked out technical support team can't seem to figure it out.. -Every time I try to install the drivers for the network adapter windows says there is no adapter to assign them to and ends... -under the device manager there is no Network Adapter in ther list until I go to VIEW and select SHOW HIDDEN DEVICES, then a network adapter shows up, but I think it's just the default microsoft crap- not the actual onboard adapter "I can't get the system on-line, is this a motherboard problem or a windows problem?" -I have a customer thats been screaming at me for a month to get this straightened out! "I'm out of ideas, PLEASE HELP..." -I've already shipped this mother board back to ECS once, do I have to do it again?
I had the same problem. Tyr this.. Install windows x64 1st install the ide driver (it's a setup program) reboot 2nd go to device manager, you will see a PCI bridge device, update that driver to the lan driver on the cd. reboot Then install the rest of the drivers. If you don't do it in that order you will NEVER be able to install the Lan driver without reinstalling windows.

Assuming the network adapter is enabled in the bios; it's got to be a bios/motherboard fault, but as you will appreciate theres not a lot you can do unless you replace the motherboard. The cheapest and only other option is to purchase a PCI slot network adapter, which are very inexpensive and dissable the onboard adapter.

Install this drivers :
Driver Name NVIDIA Windows IDE Drivers (Vista) Version 15.02 Release Date 2007/07/16 Update Description NVIDIA Windows IDE Drivers (Vista)
-NVIDIA Windows SATA / IDE Drivers
-NVIDIA Ethernet Driver (LAN PHY Driver)
-NVIDIA SMBus Driver
-NVDIA Display Driver
after that, go to CP, there you will see nvidia network (with ! mark), go to right click update, then pick from MP61_LAN (32bit or 64bit dir) and thats it !

I had this problem with the same motherboard. I downloaded the MB drivers from Nvidia. The ECS website is too slow.After installing the nvidia drivers the ethernet controller will appear as new hardware. You can then install the driver for it. I hope this works.
