    'Not reading carefully is exactly why people end up on
    malicious web sites and then wonder what happened to their
    computer!'

    I couldn't agree with you more. If you read my last couple of posts, I am
    using my daughter's computer so that a scan will do me no good. I need to
    find a site that will have a free download of the driver so that I can put it
    on a thumb drive and install it in my pc.

    I clicked on the link again but found nothing. I chose South Bridge
    integrated VT8231, VT8233, VT8235 & VT8237 (Rhine & Rhine II), which led me
    here
    http://www.viaarena.com/default.aspx?PageID=420&OSID=2&CatID=2460&SubCatID=124

    I then clicked on VT8237 and was sent here
    http://www.via.com.tw/en/products/chipsets/southbridge/vt8237/

    There are no links to download VIA Fast Ethernet Adapter on any of the above
    mentioned websites.

    I didn't click on links that want to sell drivers. I know better than that,
    and I don't appreciate you speaking to me as a child who doesn't know better.
    I'm internet saavy and I'm sure that I take better care of my computer than
    you take care of yours.

    I'll go to another forum for help. Being talked down to does suit me.

    I clicked on the link to download the file. After waiting about 10 minutes,
    I clicked on the mirror. The mirror has nothing for Via Rhine Fast Ethernet
    Adapter. It's all advertisements and about the company (Via).

    I've gotten the situation resolved so that this thread can be closed.
    Thanks for trying to help.

    Hi Jeff,

    http://www.viaarena.com/default.aspx?PageID=2&OSID=2&CatID=2460 is the
    mirror site given that doesn't have a download link. Maybe other people are
    seeing things that I'm not.

    http://www.viaarena.com/default.aspx?PageID=420&OSID=2&CatID=2460&SubCatID=147
    is a page where you can scan your computer for a driver. I can't use that
    method because my network card is broken and I'm using my daughter's pc. I
    believe that I mentioned it earlier. I finally got the file so I'll close
    this threat. Thanks for trying to help.

  6. The 1st link you give below is not a mirror, it is the
    viaarena site.

    Selecting "South Bridge integrated VT8231, VT8233, VT8235 &
    VT8237 (Rhine & Rhine II)" took me to:
    http://www.viaarena.com/default.aspx?PageID=420&OSID=2&CatID=2460&SubCatID=124
    which is still the viaarena web site.

    I clicked on the box and received
    'rhine_driver_v60_via.zip', 4.8MB, almost immediately. It's
    a .ZIP file and it is not corrupt.

    There is no scanning involved if you click on the box!

    I'm not Jeff but I see a place to "Please select appropriate driver category
    below" which then takes you to an appropriate download page.
    This takes me to a page with a link in a box whgich says "(Click image to
    begin download)" ujnder a link in a black-bordered box. Yes, there is a link
    below that to do a scan.

    It might be useful to others if you indicated the source of the file you
    finally got.

    There is a link to downloads and, in turn, to drivers. Check the ribbon on
    the top right of the page.
