Windows 7: Win7 - Realtek Driver update

Win7 - Realtek Driver update


I am puzzled why Windows 7 is refusing to install a newer Realtek driver version for my net card. Using the device manager's driver update I currently have version 7.2.1127.2008 installed

the new driver is:

7.009.1105.2009 (inf info) translates into 7.9.1105.2009 (me thinks)

pointing the driver update to this newer driver tells "the installed driver is up to date"?

what am I doing wrong?

thanks for thoughts

Welcome to seven forums MyWin7: Try unpacking the newer driver if necessary then once you point to it try double clicking the inf file to install. I have never done it this way but another member has told many members to do it that way with success. Like this click on audio device>update driver>browse my computer>let me choose>have disk>double click .inf file>hit ok and install. Fabe
