If you don't know the name of your motherboard, open the side panel of the computer (assuming you have a desktop), and look for a group of letters/numbers, usually printed large and white in color OR Google the make of the computer. After you figured out what motherboard it is, Google the board with LAN Ethernet driver included. Then download to a USB ( can buy 2 gig for 5-10 bucks) then swap and load onto the internetless computer and install. Just did this myself earlier.

Go to device manager: Start>Control Panel>System>Hardware>Device manger
Right-Click on the device that is now showing with a yellow exclamation mark in front of it.

Click the "Details" tab

Click the drop-down box and select "Hardware ID's"

Look at a sample picture below for what to look for...



go to http://pcidatabase.com/ and enter the numbers found in your hardware IDs of the device.

You will be taken to a page that shows the devices that match your numbers. Look for the device that best describes your device and then search for drivers using Google based on your findings.

We need to find out what that MB is...

If you install "SIW" (System Information for Windows) it will tell what the computer is.

Get it free,
HERE


I'm curious what the card was that you found a driver for?

That itself may be all the clues we need.

You may have been there, but if not, have a look at this HERE.

From what I can see, you have a 5782 chipset and have downloaded the correct drivers (ver 14.6.0.6a) and so perhaps something else is not right.

Are there any other errors in device manager? unknown devices etc???
That machine may use the SMBus controller which affects modems.

BTW, That board is the same as a HP D530c so look for drivers based on this number and you'll find them much easier.
