Hi Wubz0r and welcome to W7 Forums

Download the driver from Realtek here: Realtek

It is the second option down, Win7 Driver. Save the file, called Driver-Win7_6111_10202010.zip, to a suitable location and then right-click on it and choose Extract all... Accept the default location for the extracted files and click Extract.

Now, follow this Tutorial (remember that, although this shows the procedure for an Audio driver, it will in fact work for any driver whose device is listed): Device Manager - Install Driver - Vista Forums

So, in your case, you will need to expand the Network adapters section instead.

I think your searching for the driver. Did you use the 'Have disk'?

If not follow the same steps but instead of searching for folders on your drive, click 'let me pick'(check the images)

*I know there the wrong drivers on mine but it may work for you*

When browsing for the driver extracting them and place them in a folder in my documents
(it is a .inf file your looking for, keep all files together when extracting)
