Driver/Hardware/Network Problem, new Sony Vaio Win7 32bit
I hope I posted this in the right section, ..if not, I am sorry for that, ..but I think it is a driver problem and hope not any of the other two (Hardware, Network).
So I just bought a new Sony Vaio VPCEK25EC/B (as I just found out today, it's a Chinese model you cannot get information about on the Rnglish Sony website) and I was so stupid to have my friend pick it up for me. So I don't have the Windows 7 CD right now (will pick it up tomorrow), but they were so "kind" so install everything for me and set it up.
But now I cannot connect to the internet with my lan cable. I don't have the option of using wifi, but it seems that is the only adapter installed on this laptop. After over 6 hours of trying to figure out the problem I am not so sure anymore, that I even have a wired network adapter in this Laptop..
So, I am slowly going crazy and don't know what to do anymore, I hope you can help.
Here is some information I think you might need to help me, but please let me know if you need anything else.. I will try my best to understand!
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit
Motherboard: Sony Corporation Vaio (chipset verndor: AMD, chipset model: ID1510)
and under Network Connections I can only find..
Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter
My friend said he checked the laptop in the shop, everything was working, even the internet connection.. I asked him if he used cable or wifi, he said cable ..but I am thinking that they maybe had the cable plugged in, but actually used wifi connection..
I already tried to just install a few new drivers, but of course that didn't work at all.
I would really appreciate your help, I don't know what to do anymore..
