Windows 7: Local Area Connection missing from network adapters, no connection

Local Area Connection missing from network adapters, no connection

I have a Windows 7 Home Premium computer that is not connected to the internet. I have checked the drivers and they are all installed correctly and operational. When I go into the adapter settings there is no Local Area Connection adapter. I have included some screen shots of what I am seeing if they help.

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

In that computer management window (while Device Manager is selected in the left pane), select View from the menu bar. Then uncheck View hidden devices. Do you see any Network adapters now?

Then it seems that the Operating System does not have the drivers needed to "see" the network adapter(s).

Who made the computer? Acer? Dell? HP?
Model number?

If you have already installed the W7 LAN driver from here...
TA870U3+ :: Motherboard :: BIOSTAR
...and there were no errors during that install
...then I'll have to ask other forum members for help.

I don't see any type of network interface at all showing up under Network Adaptors. Usually you would see the NIC with no drivers installed but I don't even see that.

I would think that installing the chipset drivers for this board first then installing the onboard LAN drivers would allow for an internet connection.

It's always a good idea to obtain the drivers for a particular board before installing the Op system, that way if you can't get online you have the drivers handy without having to search for them using another machine.

Try using this WinAudit - Download to locate the onboard chip. From there you can google to get a driver package for it onto a thumbdrive for install on the failing system.

The only reference that I can find about the network in winaudit shows me what I could see in device manager in the first post. I might not be looking in the right place, never used the program.
