Windows 7: Which drivers?

Which drivers?

I did a clean install of windows 7 ultimate 32 bit. In device manager under other devices I have yellow exclimation points next to 2 ethernet controllers and 1 multimedia audio controller. I know that my audio driver is Realtek AC97 audio driver but I just can`t seem to find the right drivers for the 2 ethernet controllers. My motherboard is ASUS P4S800D-X. Can anyone help me find the correct drivers I need? I know that there are drivers for them because I was running windows 7 before I did the clean install. Keep in mind I can`t connect to the internet on my pc but I can use this pc to download the drivers...Thanks!!!

Since Asus does not provide any Windows 7 drivers for this mobo you should install the XP driver in Compatibility Mode

When you say install them in compatibility mode what do you mean?

Download the XP Lan driver from the second link then run the installer in compatibility mode, this will make the old installer 'think' that the driver is being installed on Win XP

Compatibility mode allows a older program written for an earlier versions of Windows to possibly run in Windows 7

You said "Realtek AC97 audio", but according to your mobo spec that yowanvista mentioned above, your audio is "ADI AD1888 SoundMAX 6-channel CODEC"..

maybe you should try to see Hardware Identification to know what Hardware IDs on ethernet & multimedia controller..

just like this threads for example.. only suggestion...

You're welcome..

When you search that's Hardware ID on google, then you will notice that is "Linksys NC100 Fast Ethernet Adapter"
You can download it from here, but i'ts only support untill XP.. Maybe you have to try install the driver manually from device manager..

What about Multimedia Controller, do you see the Hardware Ids too..?
