Thought Leadership & Events

Thanks to Keith Combs for his post as it provided me the solution.

  • Install the Intel Ethernet driver from 6irf24ww_764. You are running the installer but it does not really install it. However, it does put the driver on disk so you can manually select it later.
  • Start | type Device Manager | Press ENTER

  • Right-click “Ethernet Controller” (under other devices)
