Hello Rob Wilson, and welcome to Seven Forums ,

I am not an expert in this but I start you off, have you looked in your Device Manager, they should definitely be there.

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
Everything should be on the mother boards installation disk.
Or at least the entry or drivers created when the board was manufactured probably old but should still get you on the net.

Try this
Device Manager - Finding Unknown Devices
But like I said everything is on the mother boards disk.

In order to get your network adapter working, you need to install (at a minimum) the chipset driver and the LAN adapter driver. As Thrashzone said, they should both be on the disk that came with the motherboard. If you don't have the disk then you need to download those 2 drivers from the ASUS website

6 or 7 ????

There should be 2 at most.

As Mike says, install the driver, it`s on the cd that come with your motherboard, it`s in the box

Do you have the icon down there to the right ?

Run the troubleshooter if you do.
