Hi poweredbygoogle2, and welcome to BleepingComputer.

In order to help you we will need a little more information.

What is the make and model of your computer?

If it is a custom build what make and model is the motherboard?

Did you check this site?

Let's refine that search a little, it should be this page.

Then you can google as well as I can. :thumbsup:

The only thing that I can suggest is that you contact ECS and see if they will send you the CD with the proper drivers.

Just curious here, what do you mean that they didn't work, were they these exact drivers that the link is for?

from looking at the names for the devices that have no drivers none look like they would be for a Ethernet device. Have you checked under the network connection section in device manage to see if they have allready been assigned. The missing connection to the internet could be another issue and nothing to do with Drivers. To check this in the Command prompt type "ipconfig /all" this will show you if the machine recognises a Ethernet card and what the settings are. If you see an IP address of 169.x.x.x this will be because you are not getting an IP address from your Router. Maybe try assigning a static address within the IP range of the router.

I Hope this helps. But I may be barking up the wrong tree.

I got the drivers off an old back up I had made.


I was not looking for the video drivers. The motherboard has some odd set up you need two drivers to get the eathernet port working. I got it going though thanks. Just took me awhile to get the drivers off of the back up.
