I'm trying to get my Eathernet connection for an older computer going. When trying to install the driver I get an error message an the Install Wizard gives up with the message displayed below. It does connect with a WIFI adapter. Any ideas? Attached are some screen shots:

Hi,

Thanks for the device ID. Can you post the Device Status error you can see it when you right click on the device and choose Properties.

Edit: Did you install NVIDIA all in 1 driver ver:1107 from the ASRock page?

OK, this time I went to the software "Add/Remove" utility and opened the Nvidia uninstall program to remove the Ethernet Drivers. After that I let the Install wizard install the drivers from the downloaded file from ASRock. That fixed the problem.

Just a question of curiosity. If I leave the WIFI connection "ON" with the Eathernet connection "enabled" will the computer use both? And if so, will that effectively increase data transfer upload/download speed by using one for upload and the other for download?

Thanks for your aid!

Forgot to post the results. Also, under "Advanced" are there any tweaks that you would recommend to get max throughput on the internet?

Hi,

Good Job. :thumbsup:

I don't know any settings that will get max throughput, many program will say that can do it but I personally don't trust them.

Windows only uses one connection at a time if both are connected to the same network. I'm not sure if Windows XP will select the wired network instead of wireless but you can change the order following the steps on this page.
