    Driver realtek RTL 8139


    Hello,

    I recently installed Windows 8 Consumer Preview on my desktop only to find my ethernet controller is not working..

    Initially when i had windows 7 installed, I had Realtek Ethernet controller (RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC).But now when I try to reinstall it, it would not install and shows up an error code 10 (device cannot start). I posted this question on microsoft an...swer but i got no reply..3 people needed this answer.

    I've tried running the setup in compatibility mode for Windows 7 but it doesnt work.

    Secondly, I tried disabling and re-enabling the adapter which also didn't work.

    Thirdly,I tried to install other Ethernet Drivers, But again didn't work.

    Fourth i tried to install the drivers in safe mode with networking but nothing happened.

    Please suggest me what should i do because I'm not able to activate Windows nor I am able to surf Internet.Include links if necessary.

    Yes I tried installing these drivers, about 2 of them namely

    Win7 driver v6.111

    Vista v6.110.

    But nothing happens.A yellow exclamation mark icon appears on ethernect controller icon in Device Manager.I tried to troubleshoot with the native troubleshooter but it says "device is experiencing driver problem."

    On Device Properties, it says "The Device cannot start error code 10".

    Please suggest what should I do??

    First thing you guys will want to try is updating the motherboard bios to newest, from the manufacturer's site.

    When this is done, go into the bios settings and disable everything at all that is not being used. For example, serial or parallel ports, game ports, firewire ports etc....

    If I think of anything else, I be sure to post about it. I just woke up and not thinking clearly yet.

    I find this somewhat strange. The file I attached has an .inf date of 9/17/2009 and the driver itself is 6.111.0723.2009

    What you can do now is simply this:

    Extract the download I gave you again to a folder.

    Copy the .sys directly over the one at C:\Windows\System32\drivers

    Copy the .inf directly over the one at C:\Windows\Inf

    Copy the .dll directly over the one at C:\Windows\System32

    And finally, copy .cat directly over the one at C:\Windows\System32

    Reboot when done and see how it is.

    I tried that and still does not work ...
    It is something like the windows 8 for Windows 7 does this problem occur.
    I do a BIOS update to see if it works.

    Thanks GMan!

    It is the correct driver for you or it would not have installed at all.

    The reason I say that is because I am still curious about the hardware ids involved here. In Device Manager, you can right click on it. Properties. Details tab. Change dropdown to say hardware ids. Copy/paste results here.

    Very welcome.

    Bios update has a very decent chance of success.
