I recently had to re-install Windows 7 on my Dell PC. Afterwards, it would only recognize the Wi-Fi adaptor to connect to the Internet. I assumed it was because it hadn't installed the Ethernet driver. I downloaded all the Windows updates and installed all the drivers but it would still not find the Ethernet connection. I took the Wi-Fi card out of the PC and re-installed Windows 7 hoping it would find the Ethernet connection. That didn't work either.
Do you have any ideas how to fix this problem? I would like to get the Ethernet connection corrected before proceeding with downloading all of the Windows updates.
