Here is the download page for your network card. h ttp://ww w.realtek.com.tw/Downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=14&PFid=7&Level=5 &Conn=4&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false
You will have to fix the link by removing the spaces, since I am still below the 15 post limit.
The archive has a simple how-to in it how to install the driver. Hopefully this will fix your issue.
