How do I make it use the PCI GBE controller instead of the other device?

Check this out on another post...

Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller - Eratic Behaviour Windows 7 64bit - with latest updates
Running Install_Win7_7011_12212009 Version of Realtek Drivers.

Problem..


After install everything is fine but then after a re-boot I can get the network connection with a cable directly connected to a Belken Wireless Router
but I do not get Internet access.

However if I dissable the card and then enable it it works fine? I have to do this after every reboot!!


It did work fine with Windows 7 on 32Bit - on an identical board (Biostar Tower l45)


Can anyone suggest a solution.

Hmmm, can you disable the wireless nic from the bios?

Right. Easy enough to disable and re-enable. And good idea to try. But I'm wondering if the mobo can support two nics or if there is a conflict.

My gut tells me that I probably don't need both of those devices there. Any idea which one I should use and how to disable/remove the other? I built this comp myself and I remember trying out a couple different devices; maybe there is some old driver screwing things up...

That a good question.

You could try disabling one of them and see if there is any change.

I went into the bios and disables something called 'Realtek LAN', logged back in and the PCI GBE device was gone. Still, no faster speed though. I was reading through this: Installing Realtek 8185 Driver from Windows Update results in system crash
and maybe I should rollback the drivers. I'm downloading something called Realtek Audio Codec right now from the Realtek website. Does that sound right?
