    DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (ndis.sys)


    I just installed Windows 8 Release Preview in my pc but whenever i try to create an Internet Connection [Creating a BroadBand Connection]...I always get the Error on a Blue Screen!

    Here is what the screen says :
    Your Computer ran into a Problem and Needs to Restart!

    For more Information Search DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (ndis.sys)
    So anyone please give me a hint...

    Note : It never happened in Consumer Preview. The Internet worked in there. So I just updated to Release Preview and got this problem!

    Have you tried reinstalling the driver for your network adaptor in compatibility mode?

    You can do this by right clicking the driver and choosing to run in compatibility mode, keep clicking through the options till you find the option to install in Windows 7 mode.

    I just tried to install the driver from this CNET link : Realtek RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC.
    But same problem prevails!

    Note : In the Previous versions of windows I did not installed any driver for network adapter but the Internet worked fine even in W8CP

    OK! My problem has been solved!

    For those who have the same problem on Realtek RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC :

    I got the hint form this link Driver Problem for Realtek RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC on Windows 8 Release Preview.

    Download the Latest XP Driver from this site : Realtek Software: Drivers & Utilities.

    Driver Info :

    Version : 5.719
    Update Time : 2012/3/22

    Note : You may download the 'Auto installation Program' or the Manual version. But i tested the 'Auto installation Program' along with Windows XP SP3 Compatibility Mode. Not sure if it works without Compatibility mode!
