I just did a fresh install of Windows 7 on a old laptop laying around the office. Toshiba Tecra R850-S8540. Still a decent laptop at 4 years old or so. I wanted to spruce it up to as new condition that I could. I should not that the recovery partition was deleted from the device. I installed most of the necessary drivers from their support website, but could not find one that will install and work for the ethernet port. All versions officially published on their website for my model seem to install correctly, but no connectivity. The ethernet works in other tested ports. Is there a basic ethernet driver out there that will work with this laptop?

Windows 7 64-bit
Toshiba Tecra R850-S8540

I should also note that I tried the driver version from driversolutions.com did not work either. From what I understand that is a reliable source for drivers.
