Network Driver Needed - RAS Async Adapter

by robido4 / October 2, 2008 7:23 AM PDT


I need a driver for my network card - a RAS Async Adapter. Can't seem to find a proper download anywhere on the net! Not even on Windows Update! Any help appreciated!

Can you share...

The make and model of the device? I'll discount "RAS Async Adapter" since that's not a piece of hardware made by anyone. Tell the make and model of what you have.

Can't find the details

I can't seem to find the make and model of the device. Under Network -> Adapter in System Information, it seems to be called RAS Async Adapter. Device Manager has no details for it, only that it's a problem device, indicated by a yellow exclamation symbol. I check the Dell website for driver for the OptiPlex GX620, but it only offers a Broadcom driver for a 57XX Gigabit Controller. I'm completely stumped! How can I find the name and details of the device??

Three possibilities:
1. It's by default installed by Windows. That's unlikely, because I don't have one here.
2. It's installed when you install some particular hardware and the install program asks for the Windows CD.
3. It's installed wheb you install some particular hardware and it's on the installation CD.

So starting all over with a clean install of Windows and your hardware should definitely solve the problem. If the alternative is a non-working system, your choice is easy.

Thanks for the replies - I finally managed to figure it out! One of the drivers on the Dell site worked.

Norton blocks the given link as an unsafe website. Thought you should know.

The most beautiful phone ever has one wildly annoying issue

The Samsung Galaxy S8's fast speeds and fantastic curved screen make it a top phone for 2017, but the annoying fingerprint reader could sour your experience.
