Thunder blew my LAN card

hello,

few days ago my ONBOARD LAN blew bcoz of a thunder.
I have this Motherboard :( : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128473
and BINGO i dont have pci slot. so i turned to the other alternative the USB to LAN adapter HY-QF9700: Ad link removed - SS
Well BINGO again!! it was supposed to be plug and play but ITS NOT!! you know all these Chinese items........

my OS: windows 7 64 bit and windows 7 32 bit (dual boot)

well i got some drivers from the net for the 32 bit os. and i finally got to install it but when i plug in the Ethernet port to the adapter it shows no response and still unplugged. so i went to my friends PC and installed it there hes OS was: windows 7 32 bit and was a dell ispiron laptop. to my surprise it got installed and was working perfectly when cable was plugged in. so i left trying for the 32 bit OS and got new drivers for 62 bit one,but when installing it was asking for digital signature which was missing from the driver...........

DO I HAVE ANY OTHER SIMILAR KIND OF DEVICES WHICH MAY WORK FOR ME??

I DONT HAVE WARRANTY SO CAN REPLACE THE MB!

WHAT TO DO NOW??? HOW TO MAKE THIS THING WORK!!!
BTW I LIVE IN INDIA

I HAVE NO INTERNET FROM LAST 10 DAYS,,,,,, PLZ GUYS HELP ME!!
