Windows 7: Broadcom ethernet driver issue

Broadcom ethernet driver issue

Hello everyone,

I sure hope someone can figure this issue out. I reinstalled windows 7 pro 32x and everything else installed fine (driver) (software), but my ethernet controller wont install, i have posted a screenshot of my cpu info, i have figured out its a broadcom ethernet card but have downloaded the driver numerous times and tried to install with the error of (This Installation package is not supported by this proccessor type). yes i have verified that i was installing the 32bit not the 64, and also i have verified that it is for windows 7 too with no luck. My wireless works flawlessly but i cant connect thru ethernet port. Any help would be appreciated and if you would like more information please ask.
