I have googled this problem for hours now with still no solution.
gigabyte p67-ud4-b3 motherboard
windows 7 home premium
it was 100% working until something crashed my system and it wouldnt boot up again blablabla. so i reset comos and everything was fine/back to normal, except that my internet wasn't working. there is no network adapter in device manager.
i've tried a system restore, completely re-installing windows 7 + all the drivers
that i did before, downloading the lan driver
from the gigabyte website for my motherboard, nothing has gotten it to work. i had trouble with this problem the 1st time i installed windows 7, but somehow it fixed its self after 1 re-install. but now no matter how many times i re install it won't work. i'm pretty sure its not a hardware problem because it WAS working b4...but i have no idea how to get it to work again.
any help would be muuuuch appreciated.
