Ok, first off when you want to update the REALTEK DRIVER if you read it carfully as you are installing the new driver it will uninstall the old one first, then you have to run through the set up again to install the new driver, once it has restarted that is.

thanks guys, i`ll try the one on the realtek website coz the other one is over a year old aswell.

im just abit worried about trying it coz the last time i did it would not let me roll back and i had to get a new motherboard. but thats because i thought there was something wrong with the onboard network adapter on the motherboard. if it is the wrong one and the network adapter gets lost again and it will not roll back will a fresh install of windows 7 sort it out?
