    Hi, I'm new to this Forum and this is my first question, so please bear with me.

    I had to completely format my laptop today, and after reinstalling it, i tried to connect to the internet, using a netgear cd and an ethernet cable, and the computer said that an ethernet controller was missing. I have no idea what kind of ethernet i use or anything, and i have no idea what to do!

    please help!

    Welcome to TSG,

    Please post the exact model of the laptop that you have and the version of Windows you have. The exact model of many laptops is on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop.

    Toshiba should have all the drivers you will need to get your laptop functioning properly after a reinstall, you will need chipset, graphics, audio, network, and several other drivers, but you should find all the drivers on the Toshiba site which is located here: http://uk.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/download_drivers_bios.jsp?service=UK
    You just need to select the proper model from the selection list to get the proper drivers for your laptop, L300-25kk does not appear to be a correct model, see the examples from their selections.
