I just purchased a Gateway LT3103 Netbook. It came with Vista Home Premium, so I immediately blew away the OS and loaded Windows 7 Pro 32 bit.

The install went fine and the only driver I was missing was my wireless card and the video driver. These were easily found and installed. Here is my issue:

The network adapter does not show up in Device Manager. I found this out because I tried to install the proper driver and it came back with no hardware found error. I looked in Device Manager and there are no exclamation points and no unknown devices. Has anyone had this issue before? I know there is a network adapter on there and I did see it when I booted up on the original Vista Boot. Any ideas?
