Unable to connect a wired router

Hey, I've recently reinstalled my Windows 7 Home Premium and I since my PC does not detect the router.

I've tried using a SKY recovery disk, but that failed and nothing happened.

Do I need to download a specific driver so the PC can detect the router?

If so, does anybody know where I could download it? Or any advice will be helpful


Thanks in advance

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

So - you have a LAN cable (wire) going from your computer to your router, correct? Look at the place where the wire connects to the computer and let me know if you see a little green or orange light.

Also let me know if you see the network adapter via these screens:
Start > Control Panel > View network status and tasks (or Network and Sharing Center)

In the upper left corner of that last screen, select the link named "Change adapter settings".

Do you see any adapters on that screen? If not, then you might need a driver so that Windows can make use of the network adapter... but we will deal with that after you let me know about the two things above.

Yes there was a green flashing light and no, I don't have a network adapter, i think that is why it doesn't recognise it. I do you where you could download this?

We will need a bit more info about your computer before we know what to download.

Please install/run Speccy
Download Speccy 1.18.379 - FileHippo.com

Select Network in the left pane and scroll down to Adapters List in the right pane. What (if anything) is listed there.

Also, can you tell us the manufacturer and model of your computer? You could put that in your system spec info.
