Lost Ethernet adapter driver after installing windows 7 Professional

I installed Windows 7 Professional from Home Basic earlier and when doing so i lost 3 drivers. A these were the Ethernet adapter communications and one other. I cannot now connect to the internet.

My laptop is a Acer im not sure what make or model although i can say that it is a 64-bit operating system. I cannot find the driver anywhere?

Help would be much appreciated

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

You should be able to determine which laptop you have by checking the outside of it for a model number of some sort.
