Microsoft doesn't supply drivers for that board. If you let Windows Update supply a DRIVER then you get to remove it or start over.
Best of luck,
The other night I setup a new system and got it going. On boot it started with the installation of Microsoft Windows Home with SP1a. During the installation process I was able to get Windows activated and I was able to connect to the Windows update site. Automatic updates began updating the system. But after my first reboot I lost my network connection and I am now unable to get anywhere through the Ethernet port.
IPCONFIG shows either 0.0.0.0 or default system IP of 169.254.60.236/12. I have released and renewed, no change.
The obvious, I have moved the system to another known working port, and replaced with a working cable, no change. I have link end-to-end, and I see port activity.
When I look at the Ethernet status, I see packets transmitted, but nothing received.
I have DHCP enabled/Obtain IP automatically for the "Local Area Connection" (properties > IP > properties).
I have a local home network with a Netgear gateway providing DHCP server functions. I have plenty of adresses available to assign (50 total) and have five other systems working just fine over the existing network (3 PCs and 2 printers).
I have run system restore and loaded the initial system settings, but no change.
I am unsure what I am overlooking at this point, nothing seems to be sticking out, please help.
