Please provide with a solution.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I am sort of having the same issue. All of a sudden my Ethernet controller driver stopped working since last week. Error #28 cables are unplugged which they are NOT. I am not able to download from the setup disks (why do they make it so complicated). My linksys 4200 works fine w Internet connection along with Voipo phone service. Both items are new for my Dell dimension 8400 (maybe it's dying). I've had connectivity issues with my printer along iPod and iPad synching / restoring issues which miraculously fixed themselves. Not this time with the driver. Please help!!! I am not able to connect to the Internet and I need my files. Thank you!!

Hello guys, I've been having a lot of issues with my AMD drivers, specially when it comes to chipset and video drivers. I recently had to downgrade my video drivers to June 2015 release date, that was the only solution found so I could run games properly (with recent drivers, games that should run with 100fps+ were running with 15fps)..

But that is not the point of this thread, instead, I'm here because after a few weeks running this drivers, I noticed my WiFi was not connecting to my router (wich is working, I can get access with other computers/cel phones). In my drivers list, the Ethernet controller and SM Bus controller are flagged as not installed.
I've tried to find these drivers, but AMD seems to only release packages of drivers. I've come to this download page:

where I should be getting the drivers that solve my problem, but the big issue is: apparently, by doing it, i will be reinstalling the latest video drivers (for the APU), and that is ABSOLUTELY NOT what i want.

Does anyone know how to solve this problem? And I mean: where can I get the sm bus and ethernet controller driver w/o having to install a bunch of unnecessary drivers?

My notebook is a MSI 60X 3BE
video card: Radeon HD 8970M
chipset: AMD A10-5750M (with Radeon HD 8650G)
motherboard: MSI MS-16FK

Thanks in advance.

Edit: I've downloaded the drivers in the link, installed and SM Bus is running properly, but Ethernet doesn't. Any further help?

I have a custom built computer with a ACPI motherboard. I had a situation where my hard drive was failing so I saved all my personal files and folders and installed a new hard drive. On install of the new hard drive I installed Windows XP Pro, SP3 from my disk and thought everything would be more or less back to normal. However the drivers for the Internal; HD Audio, Ethernet, PCI Serial Port, PCI Simple Communications Controller, SM Bus Controller, and Video Controller did not load. As a result I can not access the internet because the OS does not recognize that there is a NIC card.

I have the Hardware ID for all of these devices, and the Ethernet Controller is PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_104A&SUBSYS_00018086. I did a Google search on another computer for this Hardware ID and found several sites that claim to provide the required Driver but what they actually provide is a program to find the driver. Without the driver these downloads are useless because any Driver Search will be for the computer I am running the program on, not the one that needs it! I hope that is clear.

Since all of the devices mentioned in the first paragraph are integrated with the Motherboard I thought maybe I could search for Drivers specific to the Motherboard Hardware ID, but that was no help either. Whatever happened to the old days when I simply went to the manufacturer's web site and downloaded the Driver I needed? Now everything seems to try and sell me something before I can even hope to fin... Read more

A:Ethernet Controller needs Driver

Read other 9 answers

Just read a thread covering a similar problem but they had a Dell. Here's my problem. Original Toshiba laptop died due to a defective NIVIDIA (overheating) graphics chip. Got a used replacement that originally had Vista and the owner died, so the kids deleted everything (including Vista) before selling it.
It is a Toshiba A135-S4656. I bought XP over the counter and installed it. I use a Linksys Wireless Router and the replacement Toshiba is Wi Fi capable but I need a driver. The Device Manager shows yellow question/explanation marks (nothing installed) for the two ethernet controller spaces listed.
Toshiba had nothing on their website for XP wi fi drivers to download.
Called Toshiba and they referred me to Atheros.com for the driver.
Nothing on Atheros to download either.
How do I get the Toshiba drivers for XP that I need? Do I need to run the Linksys disc and tie into the router to set things up if I find a driver?
Any driver source needs to be reputable so I don't download a virus with the driver--I don't have any anti virus or firewall downloaded to the machine yet because I can't connect to the net.
Would have been smart to have download some anti virus, firewall, etc to CD or DVD's but I downloaded them directly to the HD on the crashed machine.

Live and learn. All help is welcome--I'm no computer expert. Thanks, Thor

There was no system specs posted, but most systems require motherboard chipset drivers be installed BEFORE installing device drivers. The chipset drivers define all the devices on or attached to the motherboard and if they are not installed many devices will not install.

I got a HP xw8000 PC recently from my college. Basically I wanted to bring it home, take the local drive out of my current PC (which is a nasty Dell Dimension2400) and shove it in the new one and boot from that, saving me program installation and all that.

Anyway, it pretty much works perfect. It asked me install the drivers for some 'unknown devices' which my local didn't recognise, obviously but I have found most of them.

The problem I have now is that I can't find the driver for the 'ethernet controller'. Now I'm a fairly advanced PC user, but when it comes to drivers I really don't have a clue. I need to find it and find it fairly quickly and efficiently, because obviously I don't have a internet connection so I have to keep setting up and putting the HDD into each computer alternately just to browse the internet/try something if you get me.

Anybody know where I might find this elusive thing? Someone told me it was in the chipset, but I don't know where I can get a download for that.

Through searching the net endlessly for about a week on this, I'm fully aware that you need more information to help me find it. But I don't know what you need, so just ask me and I'll find out.

Hope someone can help, a computer without the internet is a computer not worth having for me.

Welcome to the forum,

You need a few drivers, can you run this and post the log it creates,

System Information File - Create in Windows


If this is the computer in your specs, those drivers can be found at this link,

GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1150 - GA-H97M-D3H (rev. 1.0)

Just put Windows 7 64 in the choose your OS.

You need to start with the chipset INF and the other two in that section,

Then the Realtek LAN.

You also need your USB 3.0 driver,

And unless you are going to disable the onboard graphics one of those Intel VGA drivers.

You have a GeForce GTX 950 listed in your specs, you'll need drivers for that too.

I am trying to get my computer to connect to the internet but it doesn't recognize the hardline. When I diagnose the problem, it says:

I'm not sure why it says wireless, since it's a desktop with no wireless hardware. Sometimes it just says "network adapter." In any case, I can't access the internet to install/update my drivers automatically...which brings me to the next problem.

So Ive been working on a Dell Latitude D820 the past couple of days after cleaning up after a virus attack and now I am running into a problem of the computer is not connecting to my home network. When I went into the device manager I noticed that it was pointing out that my Ethernet Controller was not configured correctly (code 1).

I have tried finding the correct driver online using my other computer and transferring it to the dell. So far zero luck with any attempt after doing the install on any of them even after a nice system restart.

I do have the dell drivers disk but had no luck what so ever with any of the drivers off the disk working to resolve this problem.

I am running windows XP pro in case that helps at all.

A:Ethernet controller driver not configured

From MS

This code means that the system has not had a chance to configure the device. To resolve the problem, follow the instructions in the Device Status box. In addition, you may be able to resolve this issue by removing the device in Device Manager, and then running the Add New Hardware wizard from Control Panel.

I would remove the device using device manager and the rebooting the laptop, windows should at bootup find the new device and install it correctly.

If the BIOS has an option for "Plug And Play OS" make sure its set to "YES"

Hey guys! Tremont here. I just recently got Vista Ultimate SP1. I installed it onto a 2nd partition with 250 GB, and I am having some problems getting the internet to work on it. On the 1st partition, this one(XP Service Pack 2) the internet works fine.

I get my internet by plugging in an Ethernet cord into my Ethernet plug/adapter thing on the back of my computer. I know it's working because there is an orange light that comes off of it. :)

But on Vista, there is no light, and I can not connect to the internet. In fact, it does not detect the driver OR the ethernet cord/adapter thing

After looking around on the internet, I got the idea to check the device manager... (I didn't look before, sorry ^^')

There is a yellow exclamation mark thingy beside the Ethernet Adapter thing or whatever it is called. So, I know I need to download the driver :)

Now, this is where I got stuck.... I couldn't install the driver :(

It's an Atheros AR8121/AR8113/AR8114 PCI-E Ethernet Controller.

This is the driver....


Anyway, I was wondering if you could tell me how to install it? Do I use a CD...

And I'm probably going to have to transfer WinRAR over onto Vista right?

Nevermind guys! My good friend at www.myxboxspot.com helped me out over the phone! :)
