According to the manufacturer, the adapter ships with a disk with management software. In device manager, under network adapters, you should see the Ethernet and wifi adapters. Was this board an add-on or included with the build? In Network and Sharing, on the left side under Change Adapter settings, do you see the card?
Sorry for the late reply, was out of town. The card is one i added myself, as the old one died on me. It did come with a disk with drivers and the like, but when i install it, it says to insert the card. I have obviously done that. It does not show under network and sharing, although windows does recognize it (sorta), as when i try to install drivers for it via device manager it shows the name of the card when it fails.
