Intel 82578dc Gigabit Network Connection Driver Windows Xp Free Download Install Update
I have no internet access after upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows I have moved your post to the appropriate support team: There is no Intel released driver for this controller for Windows The only option for Windows 10 is the MS supported in-box driver. Inbox drivers are native to the operating system if the driver is supported in the OS. There shouldn't be a separate download for those from Microsoft's web site. Can you dumb it down for me?
I have a Gateway tower that is 5 years old bought from Best Buy. I installed Driver Talent on a thumb drive following instructions to get an updated driver when I had no internet connection but it was to no avail. How do I get a driver installed onto my machine that will permit my wired ethernet connection: To simplify, there is no DC driver available for Windows 10 from Intel.
Any driver support comes from Microsoft directly in what's called an 'In-Box' driver. This means that if there is basic OS support for the controller, Windows 10 will support it at installation. Microsoft makes the determination of which drivers they will include 'inbox'. For this controller the family we do not have Intel supported Windows 10 drive package.
I did check my personal copy of Windows 10 and did see the Intel DC listed as a driver I could load. My recommendation is to remove the driver from device manager and try manually installing it. If it does not load correctly, you many need to purchase a new adapter with Windows 10 support. Should I upgrade to Windows 10 before removing and then manually installing the driver?
And roll it back a second time to Windows 7 if no success at which time I will purchase a new adapter. Or do you think I should bite the bullet and buy a new network adapter?
Any reason to stick with a wired ethernet adapter given that my desktop dates from ? Is there a way for me to determine what my Gateway system can accommodate? Microsoft may have an upgrade assistant available that can scan your system for supported hardware.
