New 64bit motherboard yields NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller prob in device mgr.
Posted on 2006-04-29
Driver version is 4.4.2
No internet access, connected directly to a known good DSL modem connectrion.
Right click on My Networking Connections displays nothing in the window.
All motherboard drivers installed.
All the King's horses & all the King's men on NVIDIA's site are no help. Didn't like the 32bit drivers, had to roll them back. A beta 64bit platform set of drivers wouldn't even install, and a 64bit nForce Networking Driver v5.04 asks to Right-Click on Other PCI Bridge Device in Device Mgr, when no such animal exists, although there are several bridges that say:
PCI standard host CPU bridge and
PCI standard PCI-to_PCI bridge
MB is an ECS nFORCE3-A
PS: can't even find this board on ECS website
Edit: I put in an ethernet card, disable onboard Lan in the BIOS, and the internet is back! Bad mobo?
