    Re-installed Windows 7 and having trouble connecting to the internet


    Hello, bare with me here I don't know much about this stuff but I'll try to give as much info as I can. Today I re-installed a hard drive and OS for my ASUS, Model: U56E. The hard drive is an HGST Travelstar 500GB, 7200RPM and 16 MB/Mo and the Operating System is Windows 7 Home premium 64bit. The problem I'm having is when I try to connect to the internet it will say "Windows did not detect any networking hardware". I looked into it further and found the device manager. Under Other Devices there's a yellow exclamation point next to a few.. the one that I think I need to fix is the Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N + WiMAX 6150. The device status "The drivers for the device are not installed. (Code 28) I hope I gave enough info.

    I installed the Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N + WiMAX 6150 through the link you provided with a usb. Now it's saying I need to plug in an ethernet cable to connect but when I do it still won't connect. I don't understand why I can't connect with wireless.. Also there's a yellow exclamation point next to ethernet controller and network controller so that might have something to do with it. I'm a deer in the headlights here I know very little about what's going on the help is appreciated.

    It worked! I can connect when I plug the ethernet cable in now but the wireless still doesn't work.. could you tell me which driver to install as well maybe I choose the wrong one. And now that I can connect with the ethernet can I fix other things like my graphics seem to be off. Thanks for all of the help!
