Realtek PCIe drivers not found - Windows 7 (downgraded from 8)

It has been a long time since posted on these forums. I don't know what has changed, but i am back.
I am very rusted on repairing and troubleshooting computers. I guess my experiences have worn out.

Anyways, my mother has a computer she bought from Walmart and was preinstalled with Windows 8. I've managed to downgrade to Windows 7. Now the problem is, i can't seem to get or find the correct network adapter driver. I want to install the driver so i can use Windows 7 software to locate other drivers automatically.

My mother's computer is HP 110-023wb

Any help would be very appreciated! I thought i can do this as i did in the past, but this is now a problem i lost experience with.

A 3rd party software says it is a Realtek Semiconductor RTL8101 PCIe Fast Ethernet Adapter.

So i assume that is the driver name. I tried searching but no prevail.

I installed Windows 7 and no drivers were installed. Can't install because of no "internet connection". Yes, the ethernet is plugged in and my service is available as i am currently typing from my Macbook Pro as we speak. And playing Destiny. Multitasking here. Anyways, help is appreciated.

HP has no 7 drivers for that model. That's a potential problem with downgrading the OS. Software & driver downloads HP 110-023w Desktop PC | HP® Support Although you should get drivers from HP you can try drivers from realtek. http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/...&GetDown=false If that doesn't work the only thing that you can do is to get a new wireless device.
