No network connection

I installed yesterday the lastest build of windows 7 ( build 7264) but i don't have any network connection. First of all, my network adapter is on-board, the ethernet cable from the router connects to the ethernet port from motherboard. My motherboard is old, a Micro-star Ms-6575, but it worked always with xp or vista.

Please, i really need some help...

If you are having a network problem your first step should be to get the driver for networking/wifi. You can download it on another machine put it on a cd and install it on the problem PC.

No network driver no network.

Could you tell us abt your wifi, router, modem?

Thanks

I assume you rebooted the modem, router, and pc's. Win 7 detects the wifi if it has installed a driver. If win 7 doesn't have that particular driver it see's nothing. what kind of computer do you have, and what is the wireless model?
