Windows 7: No wireless network connection after windows 7 reinstall?

No wireless network connection after windows 7 reinstall?

Just reinstalled my windows 7 home premium after having some issues and thus far everything is working swell, except for the fact that I can't seem to find any wireless connections under connections available- I can't even seem to set up wireless connections.

I know nothing is wrong inside the computer since my splash top allows me to go onto the internet wirelessly- so I'm guessing this has something to do with me just installing windows 7 home premium again.

Without the internet I can't download drivers or get windows updates- help!

Looked in device manager and there are three exclamations next to these drivers:
standard VGA Graphics Adapter
Network Controller
Unknown device

Can't seem to fix the exclamations since I can't get internet access (only have wireless net)

Is there anything I can download and burn to get these drivers working?

From the device manager it is evident that Network Controller is not installed because during the installation, Windows 7 was unable to find a driver. You can perhaps download a Network Adapter Driver from Realtek and try to install it because Realtek Network Drivers work in most cases.

But the better thing to do would be to go to the computer manufacture's web-site and download and install the Driver from there. You shall also find the right drivers for the other two devices there.

You should be following these steps to Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

Once you import the Wireless driver from the computer or device maker's Support Downloads webpage, see if newer drivers including a better display driver are delivered during several rounds of optional Windows Updates. If not import the latest Display driver from Downloads website.
