Please copy/paste the hardware id of "other devices" in plain text. Start with network controllers. How to copy is described on Device Manager - Finding Unknown Devices

Once the wireless network controller is installed succesfully.... check windows update and all other drivers will be installed automatically (I hope). Just as Greg write.

Device Installation Settings

3. To Allow Device Drivers and Information to be Installed Automatically
NOTE: This will allow both the device drivers and information to be installed automatically by Windows 7 through Windows Update.
A) Select (dot) Yes, do this automatically.

Is it YES??? Select that

Did you run all rounds of Important and Optional Windows Updates with reboots, after enabling Automatically deliver drivers via Windows Update (Step 3)? Keep going back to Check for Updates.

I also asked to see a screenshot of expanded Network Adapters so we could determine which one was already installed. If you'd gotten online otherwise then you should have posted back so we'd know what worked to help others.

What is Driver Genius?

We gave you the most specific instructions for handling drivers in Win7 you can get anywhere on the net. Are you saying you instead installed driver crapware which hasn't been needed since XP and may have ruined your new install?

Why were you not able to follow simple written instructions repeated several times to run all Important and Optional Updates after enabling Automatically deliver drivers via Windows Update (Step 3). Then only after all Updates are done should you import any drivers, from the OEM's Support Downloads webpage.

Why would you ask for our help and then go off and do something so totally whacked? Are you able to follow simple written instructions?
