I can't find any Realtek RTL8201BL drivers for Windows 7 - the latest is for XP or earlier.
I'd suggest an add-on card that's Windows 7 compatible - they're about $15 (US) from most major retailers

thats weird cause there was no issues with it already having the lan driver with vista what makes 7 not have the internet driver.. should be a simple fix.

i know how to install drivers... the thing is win 7 didnt install a lan driver so i cant do anything with it. pretty useless when the vista even does this simple process. if 7 is gonna be issues im just gonna go back to vista.

Foxconn - Support - Downloads

Vista was made so it would run older XP drivers and install many.

Foxconn has not kept up with Windows 7 by providing updated drivers. Microsoft provides what the makers give them to use.
They have not seen fit to provide Win 7 drivers to MS to install them for you.

Vista or XP drivers installed in compatibility mode seems all that is available.
