Internet Driver Problem After OS Installation

I obviously can't update them due to lack of internet, so I can't think of anything else to do. Is there any sort of software that can fix this, or am I going to have to manually fix the drivers by downloading new ones?

You're going to have to manually download the drivers. At least the ones for your network card. Windows may be able to find the rest once the network card drivers are installed and you have an active Ethernet connection.

Agreed, if not using a Factory Restore disc or discs for Windows you nearly ALWAYS have to install additional drivers for devices that are part of the motherboard plus for anything plugged into the computer such as printers.
