Windows 7: Need help finding my ethernet driver.

Need help finding my ethernet driver.

I recently downloaded Windows 7 Ultimate (64bit) on my computer. Everything went fine until I saw the internet icon on my bar had not internet connection. I was surprised since it was looking for a wireless connection and it was not automatically connected to the internet with my ethernet cable. I called my ISP and we found that I had no ethernet driver! So he told me to go to the HP website to look for the driver and I found my computer model, but it did not have any information on internet drivers at all! Please help me guys, I'm getting desperate. I have a project do in a few days and I can only do it on that computer. The computer model is an HP Pavillion p6674y.

Thanks in advance!

Go here: Software & Driver Downloads HP Pavilion p6674y Desktop PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English)

Then select the driver that you need.

Ups, Ken was faster...

I did. I couldn't find the ethernet driver. I only found this: Original Ralink Wireless Networking Controller Driver HP Pavilion p6674y Desktop PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English) . I don't think thats for ethernet, is it? The rest had nothing to do with connecting to the internet.

Sorry for being such a pain...
I download the NIC driver onto a USB and download it in my HP computer, right? Would there be anything else?
