Windows 7: Finding a driver to make internet work

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Finding a driver to make internet work

Hello everyone,

So yesterday my computer didn't work at all and I re-installed windows 7 home premium 64 bit.
Now whenever I start my computer, my internet doesn't work and whenever I try to find something it tells me that Windows doesn't detect and networking hardware.

Since I am pretty bad with drivers I need to know what driver I have to install or what I have to do.
I don't know how to update and I can't do anything, because my desktop has no internet.
If anyone can help me by telling what driver I have to install for internet which works for LAN also.


So the main problem is my internet and I don't even know what I am doing now, but my first priority right now is getting internet and I thought that my motherboard has something to do with that, since I have no drivers installed.
I installed realtek_pcielan_7_mb but it just installs driver updaters and those are not working because I don't have internet to update it...

Thanks in advance,

Donny welcome to SevenForums.

Please goto "device manager" (apparaatbeheer in Dutch). Expand branch "Other devices". Also expand stuff with explanation marks. Post screenshot.

Device Manager - Finding Unknown Devices in step 5 is explained how to get the Hardware ID's. Give me the hardware id's of "other devices" and devices with exclamation marks.

Does your motherboard have a driver CD? If so, insert it in DVD-drive and run setup.
