Ethernet is the standard LAN connection now I think. Install the driver twice, won't damage anything.

Install the LAN drivers first and, if it proves satisfactory, don't bother with the other example.

However, your motherboard specification or SIW (freeware: click here) should, in fact, detail if you have what I presume is something on these lines:

In that case you would use the PCI-E drivers.
