Ethernet Controller Driver Missing!

Reply Sat 3 Dec, 2011 01:07 pm
On my desktop computer I can't access the internet because it says my Ethernet Controller Driver is not installed. I have Vista, and it tries to search for a solution, but with no internet connectivity it can't fix the problem. There must be a way to download the file I'm missing to transfer over to my desktop, but I don't know what to download. Any suggestions?

Unless you installed a new card, check the disks that came with your computer. They should have the driver. Or if you have a copy of Vista, have it search that DVD for the correct driver.

If that doesn't work then -
Go to Device Manager and see if your network card is functioning.

Click the windows icon, type in "Device Manager" and press enter.

Click the arrow by the Network adapters.
If it has a problem with driver it should tell you.
You can right click - properties
Then check if it is working properly and what the current driver is.
You can try replacing that file or take down any info on the type of card and do an online search for drivers of that type of card.

My computer crashed so I just finished restoring it though. In the process my Ethernet Controller Drive was uninstalled. So I don't know what it is. It just shows a question mark when I go to my device manager. Any other suggestions?
