Windows 7: Intel PRO/100 M network adapter

23 Feb 2010   #11

Windows 7 x64 with SP1

After searching further, I found these drivers:
Network Adapter Driver for Windows Vista*
These seem to work. I unpacked the installer with WinRAR, went to device manager, update driver, have disk, and pointed it to the "PRO100" folder.
There I selected the "Intel PRO/100 M Desktop adapter", and Windows gave me a warning that the selected driver was not compatible with my hardware, but I installed it anyway, and I see that it works.
I wonder why it doesn't work out of the box just like the Windows Compatibility website says.

Thanks everyone.

Windows 7 x64 with SP1

Well, it looks like that solution is a bit incomplete.
I only now saw that the driver provides networking functionality, but it always thinks the cable is unplugged.
It's very strange. I plug the cable in, and Windows gets an automatic IP address, and everything works (LAN, Internet), but it says "Network cable unplugged". I can't get to the status of the connection, because it is grayed out.
By using "ipconfig", i can see that I have an IP address and what that is.

So it looks like that driver isn't 100% compatible (like Windows said). Anyone know about another driver that will work?
