I don't know who you are, but thank you. You have saved my bacon. I've been googling for two hours on how to get my stinking Acer netbook, which I just upgraded to Windows 7, to recognize the LAN card. No ?, no ! in device manager, just no stinking LAN card. And then I pop the battery out for a minute and when I put it back in and boot the card is magically detected and installed. THANK YOU!

Do you have unknown devices listed in Device Manager? If so, one of them may be your NIC, and might need the drivers loaded manually.

Ethernet cord not detected
Hey guys, I just installed Windows 7 on a new computer, and I can't get it to detect my ethernet cord. The light on the card that the cord plugs into lights up, and I could access the internet when running a Knoppix live CD, so I don't think it's a hardware problem. I'm fairly inexperienced...
