Gateway® E4100 Ethernet Driver

What is Ethernet?

Ethernet is one of the commonly used network techniques. It is a local area network. The Ethernet technology uses a single cable technology. Once a device is attached to this single cable, that device could start communicating with all other attached devices in that network. This single cable lets the network expand without any additional modifications to the attached devices. The Ethernet driver is necessary to provide support to the Ethernet device in the system. Without the Ethernet driver, the system would not connect to the network. If the driver is not installed in the system, the user could install that driver manually to the system. Up-gradation of Ethernet drivers is also required for better performance. The driver CD that comes with the system can be used for installing the drivers into the system. If no CD comes with the system, you could surf the Internet for the proper driver. If you find the correct driver, download it to the system. Also copy that file into any other storage space for further use. Run the exe file and then follow the instructions. You need to restart the system if the installation is over.

Following are some of the things that you need to remember during the installation of Gateway E4100 Ethernet drivers:

  • Check malware

  • Verify system requirements

  • Driver compatibility

Check malware

Before starting the installation of Ethernet drivers, you need to check whether the Gateway E4100 system contains any malware. The malware present in the system could interrupt the installation process. They might corrupt the installation files and thus you might be forced to install any of the new drivers. So, you need to scan the system properly before installing the Ethernet drivers to the system.

Verify system requirements

The Ethernet driver would work only with specific system requirements. The most important requirement that the Gateway E4100 system needs to provide is the necessary memory capacity. If the system lacks the necessary memory, the installation would automatically stop. To avoid this auto un-installation, you need to ensure that there is sufficient memory capacity in the system.

Driver compatibility

The driver version of the Ethernet card should also be compatible with the Ethernet card in the Gateway E4100 system. The driver version for each of the drivers might be different. So ensure that the driver downloaded and going to be installed into the system is compatible with the Ethernet card.
