No, that is not a wireless driver. Give me five minutes and I'll link you to the right driver.

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?
Audio codec is only for your sound card or chip. No good.
I guess I got a little confused (long thread) as you said it was slow, as opposed to no ip address. So, for clarification, you do have Internet access, it's just slow?

I DID have internet access, but like a jackass I just uninstalled the Realtek driver, and I have the PCI GBE driver now disabled in the bios. (I'm using a second computer for this thread, if you're wondering).

Go here: Realtek, and pick the fourth option under Windows. After the download completes, go to device manager and uninstall the old drivers. I can not stress this enough. Uninstall the old drivers. I will say it again. Uninstall the old drivers. Reboot the computer to finish the uninstall. Then install the new driver, and reboot.

I see you uninstalled the driver already. Download the new driver, and copy it to a USB flash drive or a CD and install it from there.

Turn off Windows Updates temporarily and uninstall the old drivers again.

The 8185 is the wireless device. This is the one I wanted to try to disable. What think ye, Petey?

It sounds like he wants wireless, so I think having the wired disabled and the wireless enabled is the best route for right now.
