Default Ethernet Controller Issues

Hello everyone,

Well, I recently purchased a new HD, and installed Windows XP Media Center 2005 on it. Afterwards, I installed my vid drivers, along with my wireless connection drives (via CD). I had no problems until I tried to increase my internet speed by using a cable (ethernet) ((I've always had better speeds using cables)).

It seems that there is no network that recognizes my ethernet connection to my modem. Under my "Device Manager" 'ethernet controller' is found under Other Devices with no drivers available.

My comp specs are the following:

Gateway Intel (R)
Pentium CPU 2.8GhZ

If there is anymore information regarding the issue, please let me know.

Thanks!

Which model of Gateway do you own? It should be a matter of downloading and installing the correct chipset drivers.

If Windows update or update driver doesn't find a driver then go to Gateway's site and get the latest driver for your model.

Gateway: GT5012

I've attempted to find the right drivers but haven't had any luck. If you need the Serial # let me know as well.

Thanks for everything so far!

Serial # would help since that is the way Gateway built their searching system .

I'm not sure if you've tried this driver: Network Driver

If you have and it didn't work you can try this one: Chipset Driver

If both of those don't work we'll have to go further into diagnostics.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!

I was a bit confused at first, but then I suppose reading the instructions would help. It works now though, thanks a ton!
