    In the device manager I get an error for the network connector. It says drivers have not been loaded. Can anyone tell me where to get the drivers? Thanks.

    Drivers require specifics. What device, specific make and name, are you looking for a driver for? We all have the network but the systems vary. Jazz

    It doesn't give the device name it simply says network connector.

    Okay...What is your network connector connected to that puts you on the web? A router, a modem, cable?
    When you go into your device manager under Control Panel, System, Hardware, Device Manager, when you look down the list are you seeing any yellow exclamation points? What does the network card say in it's list when you click on it? Jazz

    If the network connector is built into the motherboard, you need the make and model of the motherboard or the PC
    If it's a separate card, you need the make and model of the card.

    If it's built in, it will usually be near the USB connectors. See RJ45 in the attached picture.
    A separate card will have the connector in a slot like the 56K modem is in the attached picture.
