Hello all,

So one day I woke up turned on my desktop and tried to get on the internet, to my surprise the icon had a red slash going through it. I've tried restarting my router, I've tried hooking my desktop straight to my cable modem, I've reinstalled drivers from my motherboard disk and I've even reinstalled windows. The only error I get is missing network adapter, install a working driver. I have no network connections in my device manager. I 've also build the desktop myself, my mother board is an ASUS P8H67-M PRO and I'm using Windows 7.

okay was hoping there was a fix without having to buy anything (but $20 isn't horrible). Thanks for the help. Any other ideas, anyone?
