I have a Dell Insperion N7010.i installed a new hard drive and did a fresh install of windows 7. I am unable to find/load the drivers for eathernet and network adapters. I have down loaded all that are listed under my service tag on dell's site but no luck. Any help would be appreicated

Did you download and install the Atheros AR8152 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller, v.1.0.0.23, A00 from this page?

Hello... Plug your old hardrive back in and look at the driver/hardware being used previously... in the device manager.

Check in device manager if your network card actually appears at all, or with no drivers installed or with an exclamation mark (error). Also check if it is enabled in BIOS.
