Here is an odd one. I Installed Win 7. Had problems installing network driver. I then installed an XP driver and it worked. I then transfered files not settings from Win 7. Now the network keeps adding a new network that does not connect to the internet. When network 2 pops up it works when network 3 pops up it doesn't. I have deleted network 3 over and over. When i delete it network 2 works but then i restart the computer network 3 comes back. The person then finally found the CD for the motherboard. I uninstalled the old driver restarted and installed the new driver. Same dam thing. Network 2 works then network 3 pops up and cannot connect. When network 3 is up I cannot do anything. I cant change to network 2 or disconnect. I have to unplug the ethernet and then delete network 3. Then it works. This is getting annoying. The motherboard is an EVGA P55 SLI. The drivers for win 7 are bad at the EVGA site. I am hopping someone has had the same issue but googling this is getting me nowhere. Hope someone can help TYVM

Open your Device Manager and expand 'Network Adapters'. An NVIDIA nForce ethernet driver should be installed. If there are other drivers installed besides the nForce, they are probably Windows default drivers and can be removed. You can also try updating the nForce driver from the Device Manager.

Do you have the exact model number of the motherboard?

Also, in your BIOS there are settings for Serial and Parallel network ports. Unless you have a very old printer or an even older Anderson-Jacobson style modem, these can be disabled.

Bleeping Madman,Here is the MOBO that is installed.
EVGA

Zuhl3156, I will try reseting the bios and device manager again, but i think i tried that it it didn't work. I will try it again cuz you never know.

Thank you all. Hopefully I won't have to use a hammer, but a hammer is fun to use.

I am thinking that you have a RealTek Network card, can you go to http://www.realtek.com and download the latest versions?

Thanks For all your help. It turns out that it was the windstream modem. Go figure. But thank you all for your support.
