Windows 7: The driver for Ethernet Controller is not installed

The driver for Ethernet Controller is not installed

I have had a troubleshooting notification on my device for a while and when I try to resolve the issue, installation fails and I have no idea what to do. I have no problems with my internet, even though something is apparently wrong with my ethernet controller.

I have attached screenshots of my troubleshooting process and the results. Any help is much appreciated.

Hi Welcome to Seven Forums .. Try Downloading the Driver from the Acer Website .. Do you have any other Devices which are not working proper ?

I just searched the Acer website and I can't find a driver called 'ethernet controller'? And no I dont think so, just periodically i get a message saying that another computer has the same IP address as me.

Here you go:

http://www.acer.com.au/ac/en/AU/content/drivers

For some reason acers website will not cooperate to link directly to it, so follow the screenshot:
Choose lan driver. Download and install. Then restart the PC.

Yes, sorry Andrew, your instructions helped me. I would never have known that was the ethernet controller on my own.
