Hi everyone,

If i created this topic to wrong category sorry for that.

Im playing a online compatitive game and Input lag and Response time is better on Windows 7. I also bought Asrock Z490M Pro4 + Intel i7 10700F + RTX 2060.

I installed Windows 7 but when i wanted to install Ethernet LAN driver for Windows 7, some errors appeared on Windows 7 ' This driver only works for Windows 10 '

So do i have any another solution for that?

Have a nice day.

Lots of searching should find a solution. In my mind it is not worth the trouble to find and implement the solution.

This is all I could find, if you have already found these then your only option
is to buy and install a dedicated LAN card that is compatible with windows 7 or
just install and use Windows 10.

I already tried that driver and it didnt recognize any ethernet drivers. I will use your idea with different way, seems ill get USB to Ethernet converter.

Thanks for help, will see what will happen.

If latency is the only reason you are using windows 7 then get a LAN AIB (add in
board). A USB LAN adapter will add latency and basically completely negate the point
of using windows 7. A gigabit PCIe x1 LAN card shouldn't be expensive and you
should have plenty of free slots to install one. Just be sure it is supported under
windows 7.

I understood what you mean and i researched how to put ethernet card on motherboard. It seems like like a graphic card montage.

Thanks for this advice, i will care your recommend and buy a ethernet card compatitible for Windows 7.
