HI i have an Acer Aspire that I reinstalled WIn 7, and everything works but for one thing. The Ethernet Controller in Device Manager has that terrible (!) next to it and it says no drivers installed. I have scoured the internet for this driver or a solution I have been to the acer website and downloaded almost everything from that and installed it. My question is....is the driver for that in the "Chipset" driver package?
i have spent hours on this and i cant find any solution. i have done all that going to the website suport page and following the clicks notebook-->Aspire-->Aspire 7741z and downloaded some stuff but there isnt anythign there that says "Ethernet controller" this is an Acer Aspire 7741z-5731

depends it could be wireless or wired,if wired it might be part of the chipset wireless wont be part of it. Best thing to do is right click go to properties and grab the hardware ID and then type that into google

Very strange, 133mb download (x86/x64) lan driver, and it isnt working :confused:

either ur ethernetcard/cat5 cable went somewhere like lappyheaven, but seems like its time to contact Acer about it, i cant figure it out as those should work according to Acer.

Oh try disabling the wireless while installing.

Most broadcom lan drivers have to be installed manually, so...

http://global-download.acer.com/GDF...6843&Step1=Notebook&Step2=Aspire&Step3=Aspire 7741Z&OS=722&LC=en&BC=Acer&SC=EMEA_27

Thats the driver, download and unzip to a folder then head to device manager, right click the network adapter and click on update driver, then click on browse, then 'let me pick from a list...', then 'have a disk', then browse to the folder with the windows 7 inf file in, and done! :)

Edit: that link didnt copy over, so go to the acer downloads page find your laptop and download the broadcom lan driver half way down the page (133.4MB in size)
