    We don't either, as you haven't given us any information about your computer.
    Make and model, would be a good start.

    First Name:

    We need some information to work with.


    If that's a factory brand computer and not a custom made one, what's its brand name, model name, and model number?

    If perchance it's a Dell brand, advise what the service tag number on the sticker is.

    If perchance it's a HP or Compaq brand, advise what the product number on the sticker is.


    Right-click MY COMPUTER, then click Properties - Hardware - Device Manager.

    Click the + in Network Adapters and then advise what's listed there.

    If there's a heading named Other Devices, advise what's listed in it too.

    Go to the website of the computer manufacturer. They should have all necessary drivers there. If it's for a cable modem go to the website of the modem manufacturer and get their drivers.
