Realtek Virtual LAN Drivers on Windows

Sometimes you may need to have Virtual Lan drivers on your machine to connect various applications or for them to work correctly. VLAN  Drivers depend majorly on what type and company’s NIC card is there in the machine. Most of the Broadcom / Intel NIC cards have NIC / LAN management applications available on their website. Companies like Realtek does not offer this support in an open way. Below is location where you can install the Virtual LAN Drivers for Windows XP / Vista / 7 and their LAN Management utility as well.
