Right click on My Computer, then click Properties. Click the Hardware tab, then click Device Manager. Click the " + " next to Network Adapters. What's listed?

thanks for getting back to me. There are five items listed each next to a green icon, 1) 1394 Net Adapter #2
2) Glob span USB ADSL LAN Modem
3)(this green icon has a red cross on it) MAC Bridge Miniport
4) (this also has a red cross on the icon) NVIDIA Nforce MCP networking controller
5) PPPOE win miniport

all this means nothing to me!

You need to reinstall the motherboard chipset drivers. The network driver is a part of the package.

The next problem will be finding out which nForce chipset your board is based on. Is this an OEM system (Dell, Gateway, HP/Compaq, etc) or a custom built machine? If it's an OEM, we'd need to know the make/model (ex: Dell Dimension 2400)...if it's a custom build, we'd need to know the make/model of the otherboard (ex: Asus A7N8X-X). Once we have that, it will be simple to determine the chipset & then point you toward the correct driver to download.

I can show you where to download the drivers from, just not the specific driver you need....
