GA-8IPE1000 (Rev 4.x) -- Fresh Windows Install & Now Cannot Connect to Internet

Hello All,

I am cleaning up an old pc, and I reinstalled Win XP home, formatted the HD, etc... And now I cannot connect to the internet.

I tried various drivers and installations to find nothing is working. However, I did notice a change.

I checked under: My Computer >> Properties >> Ethernet Adapter (was a big yellow ugly sign). I tried to install drivers to no avail!

So then I downloaded (from another pc) the Intel INF installation drivers from here:
http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Support/Motherboard/Driver_Model.aspx?ProductID=1866 -- the only change that made was the ethernet icon now had some green in it under the My Computer properties, but still the ugly yellow sign.

I was told I need to install the Realtek driver also on that link I mentioned above, but it seems it's for Audio only??

This just sucks. What started to be a nice friendly Friday turned into another battle with my pc.

I just want to get this darn pc online!!!

Any ideas?

SOS

Thanks for anything!

Try this link instead:
http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Support/Motherboard/Driver_Model.aspx?ProductID=1863
The only difference is the last digit, but on that page is a LAN driver for your motherboard.  Download that LAN driver and install. Should fix it.

Shmoid,

I saw that earlier, but it was for the Rev 3 motherboard. I'm assuming mine being the Rev 4 doesn't change much.. Just not sure why Giga did not have it on the link for the 4!!!! It's PC madness!

I did not think that was an option.. But anything is at this point!

I think it will work.  It says rev 4.x at the top of that page. Should be the right one.
Good luck!

What's the filename of the chipset driver (Intel INF file) installer you downloaded?

Did you install the LAN drivers again after the chipset drivers?
The chipset drivers should always be the first thing installed after a fresh install of windows.... then the display, audio, LAN, et al, drivers after that.

He needed to install the LAN driver[s] again after the chipset drivers, exactly as I suggested.  :-)
