Error code 28 on Ethernet controller (Missing Drivers)

I have just installed Windows 7 Pro on my desktop. I am connecting the Ethernet cable directly from the router to the computer and it says that the drivers are missing.
I have a linksys cisco model number wrt400n and a Scientific Atlanta modem.
I cannot seem to find the drivers needed.

Hi sups9,

It is likely that the drivers for the 'Ethernet Card' installed in the computer are not installed. Please Check its status in 'Device Manager': Click 'Start' > Type 'devmgmt.msc' (without quotations) in the 'Search Box' > Tap 'Enter' (Device Manager appears) > Locate and Expand 'Network Adapters' > Check if a 'question mark/exclamation mark' is observed besides any 'network device' (You may also look through the whole list to see if any other device is listed with such a mark, under 'Other Devices')

If yes, right click the 'Device' > Click 'Properties' > Click 'Details' tab > Select 'Hardware ID' from the 'Property Drop Down' > Capture and share 'Hardware ID details'.

Do reply with the findings; would be glad to assist.

Hi sups9 ,

Do you have the motherboard driver disc ? Looking at your image it belongs to a Albatron K8Ultra-U Pro is that correct ?
