Win7 Home pro 64 bit, which is the internet connection in the device

Hi,
I'm just about to do a fresh reinstallation of win 7 and I want to make sure I have the correct driver for the internet connection. What do I look under in the device manager?

Thanks

Do you connect to your router via network cable or via wifi?

You'll find a listing in Device Manager for "Network Adapters". There will be required drivers for Ethernet controller (cable) and/or Wireless controller (wifi).
