    I need an answer as to why I cannot connect to the internet after I re installed windows 7 home premium on my HP Pavilion g7. Before the re installation I never had any trouble connecting to my wifi but now when i try to connect to the internet I get the message "Windows did not detect any networking hardware" Please help the laptop is useless to me if I cannot connect to the internet.

    can you please go to device manager and send us a screen print.

    Control Panel\System and Security\System/device manager check under network adapters to see if you have any issues.

    It says the drivers for my device are not installed.
    How do I install the drivers without being able to connect to the internet?
    The ethernet isn't working for me either.

    Welcome Heiser :)

    You will need to go to the HP website with another computer with internet access. Then download the correct drivers for your Wifi & ethernet for your HP model number. Then transfer them to a USB flash drive. Then copy them to a new temporary folder on the laptop. See if you can install them at this point.
