    Default Ethernet Driver for Gateway ML6714 laptop

    Hi, I have a gateway ML6714 laptop, which came with windows vista. I promptly uninstalled that, and instead replaced it with Windows XP. I consider it a HUGE upgrade. My only issue is that lately (after 2 years without it), a need has come about for ethernet connections.

    I cannot find these drivers anywhere. I have an intel 945 chipset, and a realtek chipset wireless card (drivers for those are all set). Does anyone know where I can get ethernet drivers for this laptop? I tried gateways site, but they had nothing.

    Thanks,

    Larkaros

    One problem, Gateway intended for that Laptop to use Vista and Vista only.

    This is a long shot, and I do not know of any other place that have them (off the top of my head). But here's a link that has a few drivers listed for XP. There is also a link in the upper right hand corner of the page (next to the ? mark) to access for Drivers and Download help.The nice thing about Gateway, is you can give them your Laptop SN number and they can pull up the specs.

    The driver I have is Marvell Yukon 88E8038 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller, but I'm running Vista and it may be only for that OS.

    You may have to consider generic drivers. Every situation I found concerning downgrading from Vista to XP, have all had trouble finding compatible drivers.

    Google > Gateway ML6714 Ethernet Controller for XP , see what you come up with.

    Other dedicated members may be able to assist you further!

    Good luck!
