Ethernet Driver help!

HI,
i have just upgraded to 7 from Vista everythg is fine apart from the fact that the ethernet controller driver isnt recognised so i cant get on the internet. Im a bit of a noob when it comes to these things & i cant seem to find any drivers that work. My motherboard is "WINFAST 760gxk8mc" & the ethernet port is on the motherboard, im on windows x64. if anybody can help in anyway that would be great.
thanks

I have tried this one Sarah. When i run the setup it says "this version does not support Vista" which seems a bit bizzare.

No, still not happening. Thanks though. If i was to get hold of a seperate network card & install it i guess i may have better luck? do you think i may just need to get a new motherboard? It is pretty old i think. Any other suggestions though would be appreciated. Cheers.
