There are many driver issues with vista. You need to check your computer manufacturers website to see if there are any vista drivers available for the ethernet adapter. They may suggest visiting the site of the actual ethernet card manufacturer. Also visit the microsoft website, they may have an update to help with this issue. Best of luck -TLCM

You're going to want to travel to the website of the company that makes your computer, and click on their support section. Make sure that you know the model number of your computer, and then look for drivers for your particular model. They should have drivers for the ethernet adapter listed there for XP, and if the machine is new enough, for Vista as well.

If you update the post with the model of the computer you own, I could help you further in finding what you need. Most likely, the other components in your machine will need to have correct drivers downloaded as well.

You're either going to have to change some or all your hardware to Vista compatible, or uninstall vista and re-install XP. One of the bigger drawbacks to vista is its incompatiblity with a majority of older hardware. It's always a god idea to check to make sure if the new OS is going to be happy with your existing hardware.
Good Luck

Your machine was difficult to track down. As far as I can tell, the 5260 is the Intel motherboard. Below is a link to a page where you can individually download the drivers you require. Best of luck!

Upgraded to windows vista. my Ethernet driver is missing. Where can I find the download for it. I have e machine. T6426


The generic Vista Ethernet driver should work. The only driver downloads I could find for your model are for Power DVD and the audio driver for Windows XP.

You may have to borrow a USB network link (wireless or Ethernet) device and use it to go to Windows Update. Select the Optional updates and you may find a driver for your onboard Ethernet there. Another possibility is to download the E-machines hardware detection utility on the page referenced in the previous paragraph - this will tell you who made the Ethernet chip and what model it is so you can download the driver from the manufacturer. You may also find this information in the System/Device Manager hardware list.

Hello: I hope the following information is helpful.
If you are trying to install the driver for the Broadcom ethernet NIC that was pre-installed (NOT an ethernet card that you purchased and installed yourself), there is a softpack (updated driver installation) download available from HP/Compaq. It will install the driver automatically for you, just download it from the link below and run the ".exe" file.
IMPORTANT: Check to be sure that your current Operating System, and model of the network device you are trying to install, are BOTH listed below BEFORE you download!

MY USB HSDPA MODEM WILL NOT WORK WITH VISTA HOME PREMIUM SP1


Be sure your system meets the minimum System Requirements.
• Standard USB interface
• Microsoft Windows® 2000, Windows® XP or Windows® Vista
• Mac OSX 10.3.7 up to Mac OSX 10.5 32 bit version
• Minimum 50MB of free hard disk space
• Minimum 128MB RAM

• Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.5 or higher

Uninstall or reinstall SP1. Like Windows XP, Vista will not be reliable until SP2.

If you are using the USB modem via a PCMCIA USB 2.0 adaptor, then you will have a power issue. The PCMCIA cannot supply enough current to properly initialize a USB mode (500mA). You will need to get your self a powered hub or get yourself a HSDPA mobile.

Ethernet port


Hi
You'd need to buy an adapter such as this one. It's plug and play so no software would be required. There are cheaper ones available if you search for 'usb ethernet adaptor' but I chose that one as you can buy it directly from amazon. Obviously you will need a free usb port to make this work! I think tThe adaptor I suggested will only work with windows 2000, xp and vista.

Hope this helps.
Philip
