Windows 7 and Realtek lan

I'm currently running Windows XP and it doesn't have any problem with the network(realtek Lan). I never ever install Driver for Realtek Lan, I only install Realtek Audio driver which using XP. But Win7 seems to install Lan driver by itself. And when I try to access my network in Win7, things hangup, only way is to hard reset(restart). I tried to uninstall that driver also but then I could not access my network. I also tried latest driver for the same, but when installing it hang. Can anybody tell me how to overcome this problem. By the way I have Win7 Enterprice(30 Days trial).

What is your system spec vinit? The only reason I ask is because we have had a few posts similar to yours and on a number of occations the age of the hardware has been the issue..

NEW Realtek drivers
(Use the third download site. It's MUCH faster.)

Lot more Realtek drivers here. They are slowly catching up to Win 7.
