Windows 7: Dell Studio Window 7 Can't find any network adapter

Dell Studio Window 7 Can't find any network adapter

Upon trying to set up my NAT for a VMWare connection i realized that I could not edit any adapter settings. I couldn't change anything because apparently i have no adapters. But that is not the case, i have adapters and am able to get internet connection through wireless and wired connections. My Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller seemed to not be installed correctly, so i tried and reinstall it but every time i do it says incorrect parameter. I have been to dell's site and installed it and i've also been to realtek's site and installed it. Every time it says the same thing... I think it is the realtek that is giving me this problem, but it might not be. I've tried to install it so many times and any way i do it, it just doesn't work. Someone please help me....
