Look At This

See if this is the correct driver. It is 32 bit.

Download REALTEK GbE & FE Ethernet PCI NIC Driver 5.663.1212.2006 whql Driver for Windows 9X/ME/NT/2K/XP/2003/Vista/XP X64/2008 - Softpedia

Newer Driver

Download Realtek Gigabit Ethernet Adapter Driver 7.017 for Win7 Drivers for Windows XP/2003/Vista/XP X64/2008,Windows 7

I think this one is a newer ver.

When you choose one to try be sure to make a restore point prior to install.

the ethernet refers to the LAN doesn't it?? when i installed the driver in the 64-bit OS it said atheros.....i had the same driver for bluetooth and the WLAN.....i found a driver for the 32-bit version from a friend....he has the same laptop.....but the WLAN didnt install and bluetooth did....
about the documentation.....i didnt get any.....im from Nepal and over here they dont do much paperwork sadly

Ethernet

Yes it refers to the communication protocol.

I see the spec you posted mention "FE" one of those drivers I posted mentioned FE.

It refers to his wired connection...which you can tell by the OP's screenshot is fully installed and working properly. The wireless, aka WLAN card is the issue here. Realtek is the manufacturer of the LAN card. He isn't looking for Ethernet drivers.

No, not likely, because you would still need the find the proper driver. Have you tried completely removing the driver, and then allowing Windows Update to search for it?

I would also try getting the actual proper driver, and trying to manually install it.

Hey mate,

I had the exact same problem, I found a working driver for mine, here it is :

http://www.intel-driver.com/Download.asp?ID=8486

Please change the thread title to "wlan driver not working (SOLVED)" after trying it.

It is actually a "Intel Centrino Wireless-N 1030 Software and Drivers 14.1.1 Windows Vista", there is no driver for Windows 7 32bit but this one works perfectly.

Thanks in advance, Daniel
