Windows 7: Downgraded from Win8 to Win7, need LAN driver

Downgraded from Win8 to Win7, need LAN driver

I bought a Acer Aspire e1-572 laptop which came with Windows 8 x64 preinstalled. It does not have a built-in CD/DVD drive, so obviously it didn't come with any software included either.

Since I couldn't get used to Windows 8, I decided to make a clean install of Windows 7 x64 Ultimate. This worked just fine via USB.

After the clean install I obviously need a LAN driver. I tried downloading the x64 driver here:
https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Det...&DwnldID=18795

Unfortunately it did not work, so I am still unable to see any internet connections ..

I need some help finding the correct driver for Windows 7 x64, all I can find is for Windows 8.

Thanks in advance.
