Windows – Find Windows 7 driver for Realtek RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express

driverswindows 7

We have a desktop computer here which has Ubuntu installed. We want to install Windows 7 on an identical computer, but now have no network connection. Windows doesn't recognize the network card.

On the Ubuntu PC I executed the following command:

lspci | awk '/net/ {print $1}' | xargs -i% lspci -ks %
02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 06)
    Subsystem: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd Motherboard
    Kernel driver in use: r8169
    Kernel modules: r8169

When I search for Windows drivers using RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express (or other combinations) I only get Linux results.

Where can I find the Windows driver for this network card?

Try here:

Otherwise, I would suggest you look up your motherboard model on the Gigabyte support website and download the ethernet driver from there.

Hope this helps..
