Okay Fair enough, so lets start from the begining, New Computer, everything but the network driver installed...
Can you access the network connections from the control panel?
the path is "Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections"
Do you see any Connections There?

Im sitting on my lappy which has the wireles net and the stationary which doesnt. SIW is installed on both so tell me what info u need from which and il try to find it.

Would be nice if u sold me what specific info u needed because when i look up Motherboard for example i get like:

Manufacturer
Model Version
serial number
North bridge
South bridge
Cpu
Cpu socket
System slots
......

So if u tell me what u needed it would be great

Okay from SIW you are after the Hardware/Network Adapters and show us the list of what you have,
and if it shows from a cable have you tried hardwire to your router from your Desktop?

Well you need the internet on the Desktop to find the drivers, and this sounds like your Piggybacking off of your neighbours connection?

How are you trying to connect to the internet with the desktop Pc?
