    setting up ethernet connection on Vista


    Hi,
    I have installed Windows 10 and Window Vista on my Laptop, a Dell Latitude E5410. Windows 10 installed the ethernet connection automatically, but Windows Vista did not; saying that the hardware is not installed; and indeed the Device Manager shows that the ethernet controller, the Network controller, and 4 other devices have not been installed.
    I'm wondering it there's a way of pointing Windows Vista to the Windows 10 installation for the driver I need.

    Setting a metered connection for Ethernet?

    Please permit me to respectfully disagree, battlezone. Not only is it possible to do this, TenForums offers a tutorial that explains exactly how, step-by-step: Set Ethernet Connection as Metered or Unmetered in Windows 10. Do please check it out, won't you?
    Thanks,

    setting up ethernet connection on Vista

    IP configuration not valid - interference from ethernet adapter?


    Solution 1: No Internet Access In Windows 8.1or Windows 10

    Step 1:

    Go to Device Manager → Network adapters.
    Step 2:

    Expand it (Network adapters).


    Step 3:

    Select your network adapter


    Step 4:

    Right click on your wireless network adapter or Ethernet adapter and then tap “Update Driver Software”.
    (in this case your network adopter is Ethernet adopter so tap your Ethernet adapter)
    Step 5:

    Now on a new window you will need to click on “Browse my computer for driver software”.

    Step 8:

    After the completion of the process just restart your PC and check if the problem is solved or not. If not, goto solution 2.

    Solution 2: No Internet Access In Windows 8.1,windows10

    Step 1:

    Open command prompt.
    Step 2:

    Just go on hitting the enter after typing the each command.
    netsh int tcp set heuristics disabled
    netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disable
    netsh int tcp set global rss=enabled
    Step 3:

    Now to check if the settings are disabled type:
    netsh int tcp show global
    then hit enter.
    Step 4:

    Now the thing left is just rebooting your system and just check if the problem is solved or not and just give feedback.*chuckle*Thumbs
