How do I install a driver for my network adapter?

Okay so I have no clue how to do this. This message pops up every time I try to troubleshoot my internet connection. Windows did not detect a properly installed network adapter. If you have a network adapter, you will need to re-install the driver. This is funny though because my network was working find but there was this issue with my laptop (Windows 7 Home Premium OA 32 bits) and I repaired and now the problem is gone but now I have the problem with my network. What do I do?

Hi and welcome to SF,

1. Please download the latest driver from the computer manufacturer's website or motherboard manufacturer's website if a custom build.

2. Please let us know whether it is a wired connection or wireless connection.

3. After downloading the latest drivers please post an ipconfig /all for us to review.

4. If a wireless connection please download xirrus

Please post results in next post please.
