Overview

This is the network driver for the Gateway(r) Luxemburg, South Lake, and South Lake 2 motherboards.

Note: Drivers for other operating systems are also provided within this archive.  However, Gateway has not tested and does not support the drivers with these other operating systems.  If installed on a computer running one of these operating systems, the drivers may not be compatible with some programs on your computer.  Contact the affected program's publisher for more information.
