Re-install of Windows 7 but now no web connection..Acer netbook

Hi,

I have had to install a new hard drive and re-install windows 7 home premium but now there is no internet connection...it seems I have no drivers...I have re-installed windows previously (but not on a new hard drive) and not had this problem before.

I have read through some of the related threads but I no longer have a driver disc...I thought it was incorporated with the installation disc but obviously not,,,I have seen a link in a related thread that leads to a site where driver downloads are available for Acer netbooks etc...but there are so many different drivers it seems very confusing to me.

My Acer is an Aspire One PAV70 D255 2DQkk model,,,can anybody give me some advice on just how to pick the drivers I need please ?...or do I need to download ALL the drivers that relate to the model I have ?

this is the link to the driver site...

Hope somebody may be able to help,

Thanks,

edit to add....I won`t be here for a while and will look in later.

I have been to the site and now located the relevant page with driver downloads...but I need to download these on a different computer...do I just download the files I need and then burn them to a disc and from there upload into the netbook ?

I don`t find this easy to understand...where do I unzip the files as there is no method to do so in the computer I need to download them onto ?...or will the netbook recognise this and unzip when necessary ?

You have to download an unzipping software like winrar (or you can directly unzip these files using windows unzipping utility). Then there would be a setup.exe in each unzipped folder. Run that file.

Hi...well my netbook is now up and running etc so I have to say a huge thanks to you for your help...alas I have only an ethernet round of applause to offer...which actually brings me to another question...I have internet access but have seen on the devices menu that I have no ethernet driver...yet I have internet access...I am confused here and would be thankful if somebody would explain the difference between and internet driver and an ethernet driver please ?

I am hoping I have uploaded this correctly...I have to say that I am connected to the internet ok but it seems a little slow...although this has been since the new install was updated and configured automatically.
I have tried this with both PNG and JPEG but they both seem very small...I hope you can see it.
