pebbly, the new driver was successfully installed from the above link. Thank you very much for your time and trouble.

I just wonder why I had so much trouble installing from the Realtek site, oh well.

Most times, you are far better off to go to the manufacture's website for drivers rather than a third party site or Windows Updates. I have a folder in my Bookmarks/Favorites with the links to the manufacturers' of each hardware device on my computer from the CPU to the adapters, hard drives, printer, etc.

I usually do not update unless I am experiencing a problem. Sometimes, I have found that the most current driver does not work as in the case with my video card. I had to install the third one on the list rather than the latest.
