Just a note here: In order to locate and download drivers, you must know identify the physical hardware by manufacturer and model. If your device manager identifies it by model but does not load the drivers correctly, then I would try uninstalling and reinstalling. If you know the model number, do to the manufacturer's site or another driver search site such as driverguide.com (there are others) and download the driver. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS. Some may need to be installed from a floppy or CD. Some of them require you to uninstall the device and existing driver first, then install the correct driver before you reinstall the device. Sometimes, you may actually have to physically remove the network card, install the driver, turn the machine off, reinstall the device, and then allow the computer to identify it upon reboot. This may be easier than you think if you have to remove it to get any identifying information off of it in order to locate the drivers.
