That's why I posted the steps to a perfect reinstall and then tried to draw your attention to them just now again: Clean Reinstall Windows 7

Any drivers still missing in Device Manager after several rounds of Updates can be found on the Support Downloads webpage for your model computer or device, along with possibly needed hotfixes which you can also wait to see if you need. Driver Install - Device Manager
Go to the Support Downloads webpage for your Wireless or Ethernet LAN device (or mobo if it is built-in Ethernet), download the driver and install it, connect to Network.
