My System Specs


Did you install all of the chipset drivers? Maybe there's some kind of wierd dependancy that requires base chipset drivers to be installed for the lan to be recognised.

It's strange though that device manager reconises the port, but won't accept the drivers. Did you point to the drivers from within device manager?

You might also want to remove the lan from device manager and then allow it to be picked up again on the next boot. Once you delete it, go through the remove programs and ensure that you delete any and all network drivers.
