    I'm trying to install Windows 7. My Windows 7 cannot connect onto the Internet because it lacks in the following drivers. Can these drivers be downloaded for free on the Internet? If yes, then were can I download these drivers? Could someone please provide links to where I can download these drivers, so that my Windows 7 installation can connect to the Internet? Currently my Windows 7 installation on my other partition cannot connect onto the Internet and I would greatly appreciate if someone can give me the links to the right sites to download these drivers from. I heard RealTek is where you can find various missing drivers for software you downloaded for free.

    2-Network Controller
    3-PCI Simple Communications Controller
    4-SM Bus Controller
    5-Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller

    You'll need to search for the specific device models to find these divers. It's best to download from the manufacturer's website.

    Windows may find the other drivers via Windows Update if you managed to to successfully install the network drivers. If you do not know them, software like HWiNFO may help.

    You will just need the wifi or ethernet driver depending on how you connect to the internet. Just use the link to Asus Brian provided to download it. Windows should be able to download and install all the other missing drivers once you have internet connectivity.
