I have Windows 7 64 bit.

I bought a Netgear DGN2000 approximately two years ago. It is working well.

Currently, there is good connectivity between my laptop and the modem/router (wired and wireless).

I worked on my desktop this morning, uninstalled some programmes, but must have uninstalled a driver or something.

I inserted the Resource CD, which installs the modem (although it is installed). Then it stalls at some point.

If I troubleshoot, it states “Windows do not detect a properly installed network adaptor”.

Any help please

First thing, lets make sure you are missing a driver. Right click your 'my computer' and choose manage. Then go to the device manager tab and let us know if there are any devices sticking out with exclamation marks, signalling a missing driver. Let us know what the missing driver is called, if anything, and which section it appears in.
