is it a dell? go to the manufactures website, it should have all the drivers you need by model number. otherwise an integrated mainboard will have the drivers on the motherboard website by that model number that is stamped on the board. if neither of those apply, go to the hardwares website and find the driver. hopefully the NIC installed by itself, or you'll have to get that driver first from another pc, then burn it to a disc or copy to a thumb drive.

It would really help if you specified in detail what machine we're dealing with here. Make/model of either the machine or the motherboard. Also, what version of Windows you're installing.

you can look for the model numbers on the boards. after that just google them to find the drivers. sometimes, for older hardware, it's easier to find the cd's.
