hey guys i just built a brand new gaming desktop computer and installed windows 7. i decided not to send the money on a WiFi card for it, and thought i would just plug the computer into my router with an Ethernet cable. i did all of this, and the Ethernet cable works for my Xbox and my laptop, but when i plug it into my freshly built desktop i get the error "windows could not find a driver four your network adapter." is it possible to connect to the internet without a network card, and just plug the Ethernet cable straight into the port on the motherboard? i can provide a list of parts if needed

Did you install the MB drivers? You should have a disc for the MB. If for some reason you do not have a disc, go to the manufacturers website for your MB & download the needed driver[s].

Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity.

" is it possible to connect to the internet without a network card"


No it is not possible.  You need some type of compatible network interface.


You need to review Device Manager and install the chipset and other peripheral drivers.
