Windows 7: Computer not detecting network hardware

When I troubleshoot it gives me an error saying:

Install a driver for your network adapter

Windows did not detect a properly installed network adapter. If you have a network adapter, you will need to reinstall the driver.

If course I know alreaydy... lot of drivers still missing. First let's fix the wired issue. So atach the cable

LAN DriverBroadcom15.0.1.011.2 MB05/14/2012

Click on down array... this will start the download. Put that zip file on usb-stick and attach to faulty system. Open the zip file. Browse tox 64 folder in zip file. Double click on the setup.exe

wired is working afterwards? You have "network adapters" in device manager?

Download and install the LATEST driver from all sections. But skip VGA and Wireless LAN section.
