Swann SW111-EU1 - DRIVER

I have a Swann SW111-EU1 USB 10/100 Ethernet adapter, and I've been struggling to find a driver for it. The Swann website (http://www.swann.com/s/products/view/?product=443#download) says that the driver should be this: ftp://ftp.swann.com.au/drivers/network_USB/WinME2kXP.zip But that file doesn't exist on their ftp server, and the file name is so generic it's nearly impossible to find it mirrored anywhere else on the net. It turns out that the adapter itself is actually a Realtek RTL8150 chip. If you go up a directory on that FTP server to here: ftp://ftp.swann.com.au/drivers/network_USB/ You will see 8150_INST_5_126.zip in that folder. This is the driver you need for the Swann USB NIC. You can also find this driver on the realtek website: http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=14&PFid=8&Level=5&Conn=4&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false&Downloads=true Hope this helps someone, as it's taken me a while to figure this all out for myself!
