Windows 7: Cannot connect to Internet on Windows 7 get an error Install a driver

Cannot connect to Internet on Windows 7 get an error Install a driver

OP: Windows 7 won't connect to the internet??? Please help
The ethernet cable is plugged in and it works (it can connect to the internet fine on the mac partition) but when I am on Windows 7 it cannot detect that I am connected to the internet. I have tried unplugging and replugging and restarting but it still doesn't work. When I troubleshoot, it says: Install a driver for your network adapter. But I am using the DSL-G604T and on its website it says it doesn't need drivers.
Please help? Thank you!!
