realtek ethernet

Specs: Windows XP
hello,i have installed a Realtek RTL8139 Adapter to my PC which is supposed to be Megabit.But my PC doesnt recognize its driver,and always updates this driver automatically :RTL8168/8111 Gigabit which isnt the right one.
So i always get the error,a networkcable is unplugged.
im assuming it has to do with Migabit-Gigabit ..
Any idea on how i can fix the problem and force windows to recognize the proper driver ?

I doubt windows is putting in the wrong driver. To be sure realtek is about the most supported device I know of.

If you insist go to the realtek site and download what you want. Uninstall the device and then re-install telling it the location you have saved the drivers in.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10

thanks for the tip..but i tried doing that already before...
when i install the correct driver i get an error:Code 10
i tried this with 2 different realtek adapters..and im getting the same problem that windows updates the wrong driver automatically,no idea why..

Use help and support pages for system information to see what windows thinks is installed.

Use live linux cd to see what it thinks. Actually they both should be the same since they use the same method.

I'd recheck my wires.
