I will be trying to install the remaining drivers soon but I just noticed something strange...
After installing the Network Driver last night, although the "Local Area Connection" that was formed was familiar, when I opened Network Connections something was different compared to the way it had always been set up. In the Network Connection window there were two icons, as usual, "1394 Connection" & Local Area Connection". Both listed under "LAN or High Speed Internet".
However, above the "LAN or High Speed Internet" area in "Network Connections", there was another icon that was called something to the affect of "Residential Gateway" of which the "Local Area Connection" seem to run through, as I realized when I tried to delete it & it prompted me as much. When I clicked on its properties, it indicated the network set-up using icons showing the pc connecting to the gateway/router & that connecting to the modem.
Maybe this was set-up in such a way as I tried using the "Network Connections Wizard" many times prior to downloading the driver. It worked so I didn't think too much about it. However, this morning, I noticed that the ""Residential Gateway" icon & section of "Network Connections" is gone! All is back to the way I am accustomed, with only "1394 Connection" & Local Area Connection" icons in the "LAN or High Speed Internet" section. Perhaps this was altered during the Windows updates... Hmmm...
I don't like only to resolve the issues, but I prefer to understand the whys & hows of it all as well. So, if you have any ideas, I am all ears
SM Bus Controller should be included with the chipset drivers.
You mean from my OEM drivers cd? They haven't installed to this point.
