Ethernet Setup

RobsImpSSRobsImpSS Posts: 4Member New User
I have an older desktop Acer AMD3910-U4012 which came bundled with a backup copy of Windows 7 OS and the drivers in a protected partition.  However, I had to wipe the entire drive clean and thus lost the backup/restore partition and thus had to buy a copy of Windows 7.  However, after installing a fresh copy of Windows 7 on the wiped drive, I could only connect to the internet via a wireless connection as there was no Ethernet driver installed.  When I entered the desktop serial number into the Acer website to detect which driver files were applicable, I didn't see anything that suggested to me the right device driver to use.  I'm not an expert at setting up an Ethernet system on a computer so I thought someone here could help me figure out how to connect via Ethernet.

Thanks in advance.

    Ah, OK. You want the one called LAN Driver, install it and it should get the port working.

    Searching on the Acer support site for your Aspire M3910 model gives me this. Sometimes the model numbers can be confusing... :)

    Yes, I found that as well but I do not know if the drivers I needed are there to my specific problem.
