  • Before you upgraded did you run the Microsoft Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor? Did it tell you that there would be no drivers for your LAN / Ethernet / Network Controller card?

     

    If you didn't check, then go to Device Manager right now and see what device is yellow banged ( ! )

     

    Right mouse click on the device and go to Properties -> Details -> Hardware Ids -> and jot down the ID

     

    e.g.

     

    PCI\VEN_????&DEV_????&SUBSYS_????????

     

    You may want to go to the hardware vendor's website to see if a Vista driver is available or

    go to eMachine's website and download the XP lan driver and load it onto Vista.
