Gateway® E Series Ethernet Driver

What are the things to keep in mind while installing Ethernet driver in Gateway E Series?


The Gateway E Series systems are designed specifically to fulfill the business needs of the users. Gateway E 2000, Gateway E 4000 are some of the commonly used models of the system. In each of these systems, specifications are almost same. Advanced specifications included in each of these systems meet diverse demands of big business organizations to improve the productivity. An Ethernet card is used for local area network. By connecting the system to the Ethernet, you could transfer files between the systems in the network. Different devices in the system help system to connect to the Ethernet. The most important role is played by the drivers which support these devices. Without the Ethernet driver, the system could not connect to the network. If the driver is not installed in the system, then the user could install that driver manually to the system. Upgradation of Ethernet drivers is also required to obtain better performance. The driver CD comes with the system can be used for installing the drivers in to the system. If no CD comes with the system, then you could search over the Internet to find the right driver. If you find the correct driver, then download it to the system. Also copy that file in to any other storage space for further use. Run the .exe file and then follow the instructions. Restart the system if the installation is completed.


Following are the necessary things that you need to consider while installing the Ethernet drivers on Gateway E series:




  • Proper malware scanning

  • Verify the system compatibility

  • Driver compatibility



Proper malware scanning



Before starting the installation of Ethernet drivers, you need to check whether the Gateway E series system contains any malware. The malware present in the system could interrupt the installation process. They might corrupt the installation files and thus, you can install any of the new drivers. So, you need to scan the system properly before installing the Ethernet drivers to the system.



Verify the system compatibility



The Ethernet driver will work only with the specific system requirements. The most important requirement that the Gateway E series system needs is the necessary memory capacity. If the system lacks the sufficient memory space, then the installation will stop automatically. To avoid this auto uninstallation, you need to ensure the sufficient memory capacity in the system.



Driver compatibility


The driver version of the Ethernet card also should be compatible with the Ethernet card in the Gateway E series. The driver version for each of the drivers might be different. So, ensure that the driver is downloaded and going to be installed to the system is compatible with the Ethernet card.
