Windows 2008 Ethernet driver for HP Pavilion Slimline s5660f

Does any know where I can get the ethernet driver for Windows 2008 on an  HP Pavilion Slimline s5660f ???
I think it's the Realtek RTL8101 Family PCI-E Fast Ethernet NIC (NDIS 6.0)

I tried to download all kinds of Realtek drivers at Realtek website but no success.

try this to identify the devices :

Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Information.
Now select  "Components" and highlight "Problem Devices".
All hardware devices with a driver problem will be listed here.
Make a note of the first line of the PNP Device ID line of the entry. It will show a Vendor number and a Device number (VENxxxxDEVxxxx) both four digits long.
Look up those numbers here:

This will tell you the manufacturer and the chip number.  
Check the manufacturer's website first or google them - or post them here

If your LAN is running, you can also use windows update, or drivereasy (free) :
it will list the drivers - you can google them, or let drivereasy do it

It may actually be an NVIDIA driver. Check this link and download either ther 32-Bit or 64-Bit (as appropriate) driver for Windows 7 as this should work with Server 2008 -

If not, try using the Unidentified Device Identifier software from

The 1st option is NOT working (NVIDIA), the message said, "Your system does not meet the operating system requirements. Update has been cancelled. (9998)"

I'll try the 2nd option (Unidentified Device Identifier software) and let you know.

I downloaded the Unidentified Device Identifier software and I see a line that said, "Realtek RTL8101 Family PCI-E Fast Ethernet NIC (NDIS 6.0)".

Thanks for your method, I was ABLE to download the Ethernet driver and it's working now.

So you know, in the System Information, I have:
the 1st line is: Multimedia Video Controller: Ven_14F1 Dev_8880
The 2nd line is: Network Controller: Ven_1814 Dev_3090
The 3rd line is: Realtek RTL8101 Family PCI-E Fast Ethernet-NIC (NDIS 6.0): Ven_10EC Dev_8136
The 4th line is: Standard VGA Graphics Adapter: Ven_1002 Dev_68F9
