What you can do is use the computer that you're using to post here on SevenForums to download the LAN or Ethernet driver for the Biostar A960D+. Put it on a USB flash drive, connect it to the Biostar A960D+, and install the driver from the flash drive.

Yes as to the LAN driver. If you need more current drivers for other things in the Chipset you can download them but not install. I do this as a matter of routine so that I have a copy of the most current ones from Biostar that work on my machines (3 A780's). Also bookmark the page to make it easier to find spec's and other info.

Sorry Kelli for jumping in.

Why would you Clean Reinstall an OS if you don't even know how to install your LAN driver to get online? Read the steps now in the blue link to see what else you forgot.

Once you unzip the driver files, run the .exe Setup file as Adminstrator. If this doesn't cause your network to become visible in the bottom-right System tray then in Device Manager browse from the LAN device Update Driver tab into the driver file to see if it will pick up the driver.

Once online follow the steps in tutorial to install all Windows updates to get your other drivers, report back any others missing after all rounds of Important and Optional Updates are done.

You have to install the driver now that you have downloaded it. It won't work until you install it.
