Windows 7: No Network Adaptor


11 Jun 2012   #1

No Network Adaptor

I turned on my computer today and discovered that my network adapter was gone.

How do I re install it without the internet?

EDIT:

I'm running Windows 7 32 bit on a clone.

What type of adapter, which motherboard etc; ? fill in your system specs and I'll see what I can do.
Can explain a bit more about the clone situation ?

Did you recently use a registry cleaner?

I haven't used a registry cleaner

How do I get the info you need about my mother board?

In the meantime, I successfully installed a driver for a netgear wireless adapter that I have (wg111.v2) so I have the internet again.

I'll let cyclic answer "How do I get the info you need about my mother board?" But I'll jump in on cyclic's question to you about your computer being a "clone". I assumed when I read "I'm running Windows 7 32 bit on a clone." in your OP that you were attempting to convey that the computer is not a name brand like Dell, HP, ... It is a "clone" as described here.

Question, if you manually go into Windows update, do you see an optional update for the network adapter that you have running now? The reason that I ask is - I was attempting to figure out how the network adapter(s) went missing in the first place. Maybe an update failed... but it seems unlikely that you would lose the WiFi and hard wired adapter at the same time - unless they had the same bad update.

I see no failed updates ever or available updates for network adapters. My last Windows update was 5/12/12

Oh well - makes one wonder how the adapters went missing in the first place. Thx for checking.

How do I reinstall them? I'd prefer my hard wire adapter instead of my older wireless adapter that I just installed.

Is there a yellow exclamation point next to anything in device manager?
