Windows 7: Missing Network Adapter? Please help!

Missing Network Adapter? Please help!

Hi,

I just reinstalled Windows 7 Ultimate x64 and for some reason, I am missing one of my network adapters. I have had this system up and running before and I use the second adapter to stream media to my PS3 - so it is essential to me! I've done a Windows update and checked to make sure both ports were enabled in my BIOS, which they were. I've attached a screenshot of my device manager. Prior to my reinstall, it said "Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller #1" and "Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller #2." Any suggestions on how to fix this would be EXTREMELY grateful. Thanks.

I tried that and it didn't work. I ended up updating my BIOS to the latest version and it worked. I now have both network connections back.
