Wireless not working , missing network controller drivers!

Hello!
I reinstalled W7 home premium 32bit on my Asus k53u laptop. Installation went good, but i cant find wireless connection. When i try to install there is not option for wireless connection , its like my laptop never heard off wireless. But when i unplug internet cable from my router and put in my computer internet works. Im pretty sure that my router works , cause i have 2 other laptops , asus and toshiba and they have internet from router. But i missing network controller drivers , i went to device manager and there is yellow triangle on my network controller tab and it says that i missing drivers för that. So i suppose i need those drivers to find wireless ? Ive tried to find it on internet but not sucess so far. I downloaded 100 different but nothing solved problem. So i hope you know solution for my problem! NOTE : Asus i reinstalled worked fine before on wirless internet.

Sorry for my english

Can you cannot to internet wired instead of wireless?
Open device manager. Any exclamation marks/unknown devices there?

Give me the hardware id's of devices without driver. Just doubleclick on them and click on "Details" tab. expand properties->Hardware-id

as well. This enables special keys like FN+f4 for example as far as I know. Many other drivers/utilities can be found there. But why should you if everything is working fine(?)

Just run the exe file, it will most likely just extract files(?) Then run setup.exe I think.

Most drivers are included in win7 btw!!!

That code you need to enter when installing win7 from win7 install dvd.

What your friend means a restore to factory defaults. So it makes win7 and all extra software itself. No productkey needed then. Read your manual how to do it.
