Reinstalled w7. Won’t connect to internet. Comcast says connection ok. Do I need to install some drivers or something? I want to direct connect thru my cable to the modem.

Did you install the motherboard drivers? You most likely need at least the chipset driver and you also may need the network port (NIC) driver.


You should be able to find the drivers you need from the mobo mfrs website.

Well, I found a folder called ATRLAN and ran setup.exe, and now I am connected via the cable, but haven't figured out how to access the wireless connection. I did run a WLAN setup.exe, whatever that is, but wireless isn't available yet. Thanks for your help. (I'm obviously not real techy, but this is my faorite go-to site for problems.)
