How to update drivers w/o internet or driver CD?

I'm honestly clueless on how I update my network driver and System Management Control drivers since I have no internet (My network driver doesn't work properly), when I get my internet working I can update the other driver.
From what I've seen I have a NVIDIA nForce network card, but on NIDIAs site there are several different drivers to chose from. I have no idea what to chose, and I don't know what my motherboard is, if it's even based on what motherboard you have.

NOTE: In the settings for the network driver "Flow control" is disabled, will enabling this solve the network problem and then I can update the drivers through Vista?

Do you need any more info? My OS is Vista 32bit.

I downloaded the Modem driver from Acer's home page for my model, but there are folders like x86, AMD64, and info file and two .cat files. Any ideas?
