The Realtek PCI Fast Ethernet NIC driver package can be applied to
any RTL8139, 8130 or 810X network card. It can be used to update an
existing driver or during a new installation of a network card.
However, Realtek advises that if Windows prompts you with 'New
Hardware Found' for the PCI Ethernet Controller, you should not
specify the location of the driver. Instead, finish the new
hardware wizard (the PCI Ethernet Controller will now appear in
Windows' Device Manager), then run the setup program included in
this package. Restart your computer to complete the installation.
More details can be found in the setup.txt included within the zip
Do use the latest driver version available, it will help you use
the facilities of your hardware easier and better. An old version
can create hardware conflicts and errors in function. Try to stay
updated with your drivers monthly or sometimes weekly. Chose wisely
the specific drivers: motherboards driver, bios, graphic cards
drivers, modem drivers and so on. Chose the right driver for your
hardware and try to make backups of your system every time you want
to make a change.
