Have you tried to disable the net adapter through windows?

Question

I have an a7N8X deluxe motherboard from asus and i was wondering, when i enable onboard ieee device in the bios, it not only enables the ieee ports but also an ieee net adapter, is this normal? if not, how do i fix it? how do i keep the ports running but uninstall the net adapter?

This question was answered on April 19, 2004. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

To whom it may concern:

It is normal for all ieee ports to be enabled if thats what your enabling But while you have the netadapter enabled you should be able to disable it through your device manager To do this, click on start -> settings -> control panel Then for windows XP click performance and maintinence -> system icon -> hardware tab -> device manager For windows 2000 click the system icon -> hardware tab -> device manager Or if you have "My Computer" icon on the desktop you can right click it, click properties -> hardware tab -> device manager.

When the device manager has been opened look for "Network Adapters" once you find it click on the (plus sign) to the left of the words "Network Adapters" Then you will see a list of the network adapters you have installed Once you found the one you want to disable right click it and click on disabled Now the network adapter should not interfere with any other adapters or modems you have It would be as it does not exist.

Sincerely,
