Re: Need driver
The two drivers I could see there, appear to be Intel. So
another place to look for drivers would be -
Intel has their version, of providing assistance in
identifying what LAN chip is involved.
Instead, I'd take Everest, go to Devices:PCI and get the info
there. You install and run this on the laptop, to get some
For example, if I go to Devices:PCI for my current
computer, then take the entry that corresponds to
my network chip, the value for Device ID is "1106-3065".
Next, I get a copy of pci.ids . This is a text file and
can be saved and opened later with Wordpad.
If I scroll down in the list, I find these two lines
in close proximity.
1106 VIA Technologies, Inc.
3065 VT6102 [Rhine-II]
So I know my chip is a Rhine-II.
You'd do a similar thing for the Intel chip. Use
Everest, to either get the name directly from the
built-in enumeration, or use the Device ID, to find
the identity in pci.ids.
Then, it is back to the Intel downloadcenter site,
A look in Ethernet Components:Ethernet Controllers,
might find a match for the required driver.
