Solved No driver for MS ethernet adapter


Just yesterday I bought a Microsoft ethernet adapter, the one MS sells specifically for SP1,2,3.

So I attach it to a known good ethernet connection, and yes the cable works with another computer. However, the SP2 says no driver. I try to "update" the driver, but then it says no driver is to be found anywhere on the 'net. (Wifi does work...)

Funny thing is that the ethernet adapter worked fine plugged into another computer's USB port. (Laptop running Linux, not even a current version, but it just worked.)

What's up with the SP2 and the adapter? A quick look around the MS site didn't produce any answers.

Appreciate any help with this little mystery!!
