I recently reformated my windows vista home premium 64bit because it was showing corrupt internal drivers, everything was working fine until trying to set everything up after the format. I tried to establish a connection to update windows and mydrivers, but in the device manager it shows my network adapter with a "!" unable to fix it when reinstalled,

We currently have Verizon fios, it was working fine before the reformat and it continues to work fine for everyone who has wireless.

help?! D:

Hi,

I had this problem as well, and found that a Windows update seemed to cause the problem. Fortunately I was able to download the LATEST ethernet driver from Realtek, and this resolved the problem.

You may also try to go to Micro$ost update and do a "custom" Search for updates, if I'm not mistaken there is a Realtek NDIS update there, this may help.

I am assuming that you have a wireless connection. If not, I suggest that you ask a friend to search for your particular driver at realtek, and have him download it for you. :huh:

Do you have the Driver CD or DVD for your motherboard? - The ethernet driver will be found on that CD.

You can also try to "update" the driver from the device manager:

Open device manager

RIGHT click on the driver with the "i"

select properties

click on the driver tab

click on the update this driver button (you must have your driver disc loaded into your ROM)

In the next pane, select "browse my computer for driver software"

HOPEFULLY the OS will scan the disc and load the necessary NDIS files from there :huh:

If it is a store bought PC then go to the manufacturers website. Of course this will need to be done from a PC with internet access. Look up your particular make and model. The latest recommended driver from the OEM will be available there.

You can do the same if this is a custom build. But you will need to go to the motherboards site and look it up there.


This is all assuming that it is an on board\built in NIC, not an add on PCI card.
