IS-10 Ethernet driver

I have recently reformatted the hard-drive on a customized windows based PC which uses an Asus IS-10 motherboard. After reinstalling Windows, I find that the driver is missing for the Ethernet Adapter. I have searched the web and attempted reinstalling the IS-10 driver cd that came with the motherboard without success. Is there a trick to finding the driver, or does it sound like there is another issue?

The driver is probably a manufacturer that the MB maker used. Could be almost anything. you can try looking at the motherboard to see if there is a 3com, broadcom, or other chip on there. You can also visit the website for your motherboard information and see if they describe who made the chip set for your Ethernet card. That will help you get back up and running.

First off and IS-10 is an Abit board, not Asus.
If you are using and Asus CD on an Abit board no wonder you can't find the driver.

You need the Broadcomm 4401 Lan Driver.
Found here:

Same driver works for Win9x, ME, W2k, and XP 32-bit.

This might help too:

Those cheesy 3rd party programs are comprised of databases with manually entered data sourced from the manufacturers.
They are fraught with errors and generally provide out of date drivers.

You are FAR better off checking with manufacturers yourself and acquiring the latest drivers.

The link that was posted by pcbonez is dead. Is there another redirect to it?
