    While in Windows 7, Device Manager. Click on the network adapter, and see what it says.
    You should be able to get the driver from the manufacturer's support section.

    Yes, that is the reason for your issues. You need to install all those drivers.

    From the manufacturer website only. Anywhere else is either $$, hassle, virus, or other weirdness.
