Hello, I have always used my smart phone along with the EasyTether app

to supply my PC with internet. I finally got mainstream internet

(Consolidated Communications) but when I went to plug in my ethernet

cable into my motherboard....nothing. So I went back to tethering which is

better now because I am able to use WiFi on the phone instead of the 4G

network I utilized before. I want to use a cord though because I am a

gamer and the phone causes issues (NAT type is always bad on whatever

game I play). So, I went and purchased a PCI network card and popped it

in. It detected the card and attempted to find drivers but failed. So I used

the disc the network card came with and dropped the Windows 7 64bit

drivers on the desktop. It picked up and identified the card and installed

drivers but of course it would not work. It was listed in device manager as

partially functional but had a code 10. I had to go to work and I have

come back and now no matter what I do the card won't show up again. I

am at a loss, can someone help me get my internet going by either the

motherboard or PCI card? The model is a TG-3468 from tp-link. The

motherboard is an ASUS P8z68-v on Windows 7 64 bit. I have ran windows

update and installed all necessary updates as well as checked the

motherboard drivers everything is up to date. I also have many other items

that device manager can not find drivers for. Any help is greatly

appreciated I would like to break free from my smart phone setup and go

from Router to PC like a normal person.

OS: Win 7 SP1

My System

For the motherboard NIC, ensure the port is enabled in the BIOS. After it is enabled in the BIOS, Windows should find the hardware. Windows may automatically install drivers, but for best performance, you should install the drivers supplied by the motherboard manufacturer. The drivers should be on the manufacturers website.

As for the addon card, code 10 is typically a driver issue. Try going to the manufacturers website and getting the latest driver directly from the source (and not the likely outdated CD). You may need to remove/uninstall, reboot, and then try installing the latest driver.

Also ensure you are using the correct driver for your OS. I assume that you are already trying to use the correct driver, but your profile shows Windows XP and your post says Windows 7.
