Windows 7: Need network adapters

Need network adapters

I've reinstalled Windows 7 HP 32-bit on my mates Acer Aspire 5551 laptop. Everything is fine with the exception of the network adapters.

Both the Ethernet and Network controller listed in the Device Manager have the yellow exclamation mark. As there is no Internet connection listed how do I find the correct drivers?

I have tried both the Acer website and the Broadcom website but am unsure what I'm actually looking for.

I have installed the Everest software this is what it says:

BROADCOM BCM43225HM 802.11b/g/n Wireless Network Adapter

BROADCOM NetLink BCM57780 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller

Any help would be much appreciated

For the Ethernet and network controller, you need to install the LAN driver from Acer Aspire 5551 Service & Support. For the Broadcom wireless you will need to install the Broadcom wireless LAN driver from the same page.
