Unable to get network working due to lack of network driver...

    Hi.

    I am playing around with Windows Vista Beta 2 b5308 since I just
    installed it today. I have no network due to lack of network driver
    according to Device Manager. Ethernet Controller shows a yellow "!".

    Where can I get the driver from? According to Windows XP, it uses a
    Yukon Marvell network driver. I have not found a Vista driver on the
    Internet. I also do not have the original CD/disks that came with this
    motherboard/computer.

    Thank you in advance. :)

    I have the same network card. It might be worth trying the 64 bit XP
    drivers that are available, but there is no guarantee that they will work.
    I don't think the Vista drivers have been released yet.

    Forgot to say that I'm not testing Vista myself as yet.

    Uh, where are those 64-bit XP drivers at? Remember, I don't have the
    original motherboard CDs/disks.

    OK, there are XP drivers. I will try those.

    OK. BTW, this is for ASUS K8V SE Deluxe motherboard with its onboard
    Marvell Yukon Ethernet Gigabit device.

  7. Could you send me a copy of Symantec AntiVirus for Vista by e-mail since you
    work there? :)

    No can do. I am not even in that enterprise group. :)

    It installed, but it doesn't seem to find the Internet. I cannot connect
    to any Web sites. Pinging seems to work. Accessing my Linksys router
    (192.168.1.1) via Web (IE7) doesn't seem to work.

    What have you entered as your primary DNS server? If you use your routers
    address as primary DNS, try adding your Internet Service Providers DNS
    servers as alternate DNS servers in your network settings. This worked for
    me in 64bit XP.

    If you mean DNS as shown in ipconfig.exe, then it was grabbed from the
    Linksys router that got it from the company's network router(?). I can
    say XP, 2K, 9x, etc. have no problems. I am thinking it is a Vista's
    issue somewhere.

    That worked partially. I used 192.168.1.123 since I know it is unused
    and the Linksys router is 192.168.1.1. I was able to access the router's
    administration Web pages, but not the Internet. I even added two DNS
    addresses that the company and other non-prerelease OS' use. I tried
    http://66.102.7.147 (Google's Web site) and that failed.

    Weird. Maybe I will just wait for the next major update before playing
    around with Vista. :)
