Hhmmm, in my folder that AusSetup is a different file size? Mine's 1089 kb, yours 460 kb. Am I i wrong folder?

do I just click it and see what happens? Do I want the most recent one if I'm looking around at all of them?

no I don't have the disc, this is a custom built machine, by someone else.
appreciate you helping me on the weekend mate! Must be Sunday already for you?

Just looked in Lan, Windows 7, and Windows, all have the same AsusSetup.exe file, same size and the same date for all three I can find.

Hmm Joe mate my bad I had a small window and expanding it found the size that you have too

Now I tried the Realtek site itself and guess what no references to that driver - no surprise really because past dealings with their site have ended in hours of frustration.

Now I think the driver you need is the one from the Asus site as in pics and by the by do you still have the software disk that came with the board or even a manual? There is a link in that second pic for Realtek but have not tried it because it is getting very convoluted now.

The other things I could suggest is to try a new Ethernet cable (does the small light come on when you plug the cable in or is there a small - usually - a green LED) or go wifi - I know that you prefer LAN as I do but sometimes one has to compromise and as long as your modem is properly secured it should not be a problem.

I shall ait to hear from you because the other way to look for a driver is an aftermarket software I sometimes use but only when I have a problem that I cannot find my way around.

One more option would be a PCI card for the LAN see pic

No software disc or manual, this is a custom built setup and I never got those,

I have wifi, but don't I need to setup a connection in the Network and Sharing Center, to crate a LAN connection?

Well yes you do but perhaps I have got this wrong but at my place (I am at work right now) I just connect my machines to the modem -- I have never had to make a set up like that?? When I installed the OS on my machines I had the choice of making the connection then I chose Public because it affords me more security unless I have it terribly wrong.

Now it might be of use or not but see this Network Location - Set as Home, Work, or Public Network

What I thought was that you needed a driver for the Ethernet port on your machine as I was under the impression that the port was not working?? So are there lights lit on that port as I ascribed to?

Yes I have a small green light right next/under to the ethernet cable on the rear, than above the cable is a blinking orange light.

I had a friend help me set up this machine, but I'm the one who set up the connection and I don't really know much about it. I went from Win XP to Win 7.

I remember I had to keep deleting the connection and setting up a new one each time. Somewhere I set up the dial up and there it's stayed, until now.

I'll go check out that last link!

Ok Joe keep us updated if you get anything out of that tutorial.
Have a look at this I found https://answers.yahoo.com/question/i...9075830AAHsbQe it seems the lights mean something about speeds as such or the direction of the data traffic.

I shall keep on looking mate and if I find anymore about it I will get back to you.
