It is very important to install a proper driver that is matched to your version of Windows. Installing a mismatched driver can cause a wide array of issues, starting with the inability of your Windows OS to properly detect networking hardware, serious occurrences of system instability crashes, or even data loss due to sudden restarts when your storage drivers are in use.
Installation and Use
The latest version of Realtek Ethernet Lan Driver is intended to be used on Windows 7 and Windows 10. It comes as a modestly sized package that’s just over 10 MB in size and requires the user to manually install the drivers on their PC. Thankfully this procedure is not that difficult.
All that you need to do is to go to Device Manager configuration window (right-click on Start Button > Device Manager, or simply search for it with Windows search tool) and locate the networking hardware section with the device that is marked as not working properly. From there you can right-click on that Realtek networking hardware and choose Upgrade Driver and Choose from Disk options. Simply navigate to the storage directory where you have unpacked Realtek Ethernet Lan Driver archive and Windows will do the rest.
While this driver archive is optimized for Windows 7 and 10, some users have reported that these drivers are also compatible with Windows Vista and 8. Use caution when installing these drivers on unsupported Windows versions.
