lost internet connection after windows updated

I rebuilt my computer a couple of days ago and had the internet working fine, updated the network drive yesterday. After the update the computer doesnt recognize that its plugged into the internet. I am using a wired computer with a router connecting it to DSL. I have tried a couple of things that other threads have given; disable/enable network card, uninstall card so windows 7 replaces the card, unstalling the update, checking in the adapter settings that internet protocol version 4 is set up right ( but also have 8 other connections in the adapter). Not sure where to go from here will be trying some things until I get word from you guys.

    if its a intel motherboard, then you can go to intel's driver site and choose the option, automatically check for updates, and see if there is an appropriate driver coming up for the network card

    OK so its not resolved as I thought. I checked for updates on the asus website and updated the most recent but it had me first go to intel website and install an update there first but didnt seem as it completed, went to command prompt and then it closed without righting anything down. I restored the computer to an earlier time because windows updated the same one again and the connection went away. I tried to follow the steps from last time it went out but can't get the signal back. Also the computer seems super slow today, have
    i7 cpu and
    asus p8z77-v pro board with
    nvidia Geforce GTX 560 Ti
    but is running slower than my old build, everything is running slowly, takes a minute to open anything up and sometimes just lags out/freezes for a few seconds.
