[Resolved] Dev Mgr always finds unknown Ethernet Controller

Recommended Posts

When I boot, i get the new hardware found wizard. I just loaded 6.86 nvidia chipset drivers this morning. I go into device manager and uninstall it, but it pops back after every reboot.

 

I tried to update its driver by pointing to the ethernet folder where 6.86 expanded its ethernet files, but it wasn't a recognized device.

 

I'm wondering if it has anything to do with hw support for nVidia firewall? Is there such a thing? I think i skipped installing the firewall this time.

it has two ethernet ports.

one is the marvell lan port

the other one is the nvidea port

you can install the marvell lan drivers from the cd.. or find it online.

I didn't know there were two actual enet controller chips on the mobo. I thought it was some kind of dual-channel controller.

 

thanks for the tip
