So what are the Devices which don't have drivers In Device Mgr?.

Try drivers theog supplies, as he is very good with this.

If these fail, we need help from your end spec'ing out the driver. It should have a listing of some sort showing in error (with an !) in Dev Mgr. Even if the missing driver Device has no model named, we can trace it's hardware model to locate driver on manufacturer's Support Downloads webpage: Hardware Identification

Device also should appear somewhere in Speccy under Networking.

If you have a USB network adapter you can get online to speed the process, using Auto driver updating from Device Manager after enabling auto hardware updating: Automatically get recommended drivers and updates for your hardware

We know that the driver exists for ethernet because it was working before reinstall, correct?

Thats a wise decision Ruby ,Realtek or Broadcom appear to be the popular choice with readily available drivers
