Hello all :)

I am running a dual boot system - XP 64 and Windows 7 64. The XP boot has no problems, but on restart, my win7 cannot access the internet. I have to uninstall the drivers and restart to allow the drivers to be reinstalled before the network will connect.

I read somewhere that a Windows Update may be the problem. Does anyone know which update it could be so I can delete it or should I just remove everything? Perhaps there is another solution?

Thank you for your help.

Not until I delete the Ethernet drivers, restart windows, and allow it to install automatically.

Go to your motherboard manufacturer's site (if your ethernet is part of the mobo) and see if they have a newer driver. Sometimes the drivers supplied by Windows are old.

I've already downloaded the drivers from Asus and that didn't work. I also ran a complete virus scan and it isn't that.
