You...or someone else...can download the drivers on a different system...put them on removeable media (floppy, CD, DVD, flash drive) and then use that media to install the drivers on your system or copy them to your desktop and install them from there.

Here is the link for the drivers. Under Network you want the Intel driver.

Its also possible that you may have a bad network card on the system. Particularly if you have had any bad storms in your area.

Try the driver first. If it still doesnt work consider trying a PCI network card.
They are pretty cheap 10 - 15 dollars or so.
In the beginning there was the command line.
