Windows 7: network adapter not showing up in device manager

2000 Pro, XP MCE, Vista Premium, 7 pro

I tried it, and it didnt do anything. the other thread talked about getting an update, but his device was working from the beginning. I cant install a driver until it shows up in the device manager

im not going to bother anymore. im back on XP.

Windows 7 doesnt accept my PCI card so I wont accept Windows 7 on this computer.

and I already tried that kind of driver. those are update drivers. you have to go into the device manager, select the device and then update driver. but I dont have my device listed so nothing works.

in XP MCE it works no problem. I dont know anything about IRQ's though,so I dont know if there was a conflict or anything.

as an addition:

this topic wasnt about getting drivers, it was about getting the device listed so I could then try to get drivers.

I thank you for your time, but this isnt going to work.
