The driver I downloaded was the only driver listed on the Asus site for my motherboard (Sabertooth Z77).
And re: extracting the drivers: I just opened the .zip file and extracted the root folder (which in this case was called Intel_LAN_V16600_XPWin7). Once I did that, I told Device Manager to scan that parent directory. I don't recall if it found the driver in there or in one of the subfolders (the subfolders for mine were Apps, Platform, Pro100, Pro1000, and ProXGB), but the only subfolders for mine worth checking would be Pro100, Pro1000 and ProXGB). I'm wanting to say it was the Pro1000 subdirectory that actually installed my network card, but I could be mistaken.
For my driver, the Pro100/Pro1000/ProXGB directories were for different nics that might have been included for this card.
I'd get the driver from Asus and give this a shot at least. I dunno if something's different for the P8Z77-V and the Sabertooth Z77, but this is what I did to get it working for me.
