Windows 7: No internet in Win 7

No internet in Win 7

Hello,

I just installed a new PSU + graphics card (yay). But now when ever I boot to windows 7 I can't connect to the Internet. Right now your thinking "Wow, what a waste of time, all this guy needs is a new network adapter" I would like to point out that I am on that computer but in Ubuntu (please save me from this hideous beast). So what could the issue be and how do I solve it?

Thanks!

Have you tried updating the driver?

I don't have the drivers for the network adapter, it's integrated. Also the PSU and GPU can be taken out and the Internet is still broken for windows 7.

Any thing flagged in device manager as having a problem? What does the Networking and Sharing Center show for connectivity? Have you tried the Troubleshot problems option in the Networking and Sharing Center?

It it's integrated you can find the driver on the Motherboard manufacturers website. It may also be on the driver CD that should have come with your motherboard/PC. It just depends on how old the drivers are on the CD. If there are vista drivers there they may work.

It says it is disconnected and it says the adapter is not working properly (which is wrong because I am using the adapter now)

Not working doesn't necessarily mean it's broken or defective. A device can be not working if it's drivers aren't installed or have been corrupted. There are lots of other things that can cause a device to not work in one OS but work in another. The fact that yours works in Linux but not in windows points to a software problem not a hardware problem. What does device manager show when you look at that device?

It says that the adapter is not working properly. Would a new adapter fix it?

It might or might not, it depends on whats preventing the current one from working normally. If you right click it in device manager and go to properties what does it say in the device status window? Is there any error code mentioned?
