Hi all,

I need a driver for an Ethernet Controller for an Asus system board numbered PTGD-VX in a sony Viao model # PCV-A11L Running windows XP Pro. Asus's site has been down for a few daya nd I cant seem to find it any where. I will keep looking but if some one could point me in a good direction I would be grateful.

Thank you,
Josh

P.S. Sorry if this in the wrong thread.

Sadly I have checked there as well as google. The Product number and sierel number come back with nothing. The Chaisi number isn't there and I am unable to acquire a drive from that site.

I have tried going through Device manager. And the link you gave me doesn't have the chassis or system available. When I attempt to use the S/n or P/N it tells me that they don't match. I am not to sure how to proceed from here. I will verify the information and see if I made a human mistake. Then follow the sound advice you have given me.

Thanks,
Josh

Warning: possible dumb question

What piece of data am I looking for with the PC wizard?

In PC Wizard click on the Mainboard icon in left panel and it should give you the mobo make and model , also the chipset .
Click on the Network icon for your NIC (network card) .

Ok, through further research I have discovered that this board was made by Asus and all information including drivers have been made proprietary by Sony corp. At least my search is narrowed. =)

I ended up finding a driver through Sony e-support. Us version. The above site doesn't have the model or type available, but as I mentioned I did fine one that works on esupport.sony.com/US

So, incase anyone else runs into this problem we have a location to direct them.
Thank you all for your help.

JoshDuck, where did you go after you clicked that link. I'm having the exact same problem you were having but I still can't find the appropriate driver to resolve the problem. Did you use one that wasn't for the PCV-A11L model? Thanks!

I am very sorry to sat that I had to install a few different drivers. Stick with the PVC numbers and I believe it was the third or forth one on the list.
The particular model wasn't there and the search option never returned a model. Said the Serial number and Model number didn't match. So sorry to have to say that its a trial and error with at least a small target.
