First, please do not bump your posts, we see it :)

Next, since you have extracted your driver from the rar file, open the device manager. Find the yellow icon that should say something like "etnernet controller" and then right click on it and go to "Update Driver". On the first screen, check "No, not at this time". On the next screen, check "Install from a list or specific location", then make sure "search for the best driver" is checked and only "include this location in the search". Next, click on the browse button and locate the drivers that you extracted from the rar file. Then click next. If the driver is compatible, it will install it and the device should work. If it is not, then it is not the right driver.
