I am running a Emachines W3644 and my device manager says I need to download drivers as follows:
Direct Parallel
WAN Miniport (IP)
WAN Miniport (IP)-Packet Scheduler Miniport
WAN Miniport (L2TP)
WAN Miniport (PPPOE)
WAN Miniport (PPTP)
All listed under NETWORK ADAPTERS
ARE these really needed to connect directly to my DSL Modem? If so,Where do I download them at?

Thank you. I tried that site this morning and downloaded the LAN driver that was also needed for my Ethernet. The rest of the downloads avail. are for the MoBo and other stuff that I do not need. At least I don't have yellow marks in my device manager for those other items,Just my Network Adapters have yellow marks.

When installing an OS, first you install the chipset drivers (sometimes called motherboard drivers), and only then you start installing the other drivers. If you do it out of order it usually works, but could end up resulting in certain drivers not working (and worst case scenario you have to install the OS again).
