Reinstalled Windows 7 and now won't connect to the internet

Tutorial [教程] • 11 NOVEMBER 2015
I had a Asus desktop that had Windows 7 pre -installed. After a few years and lots of problems I determined that I needed to reinstall Windows 7. After reinstall Windows 7, there is no internet connection. It says "No connections network adapter missing"

I have already tried going to the device manager, and fail to find the network adapter. When I go into the Network sharing center there is nothing, no connections at all. I need to install a driver for my Ethernet Network Adapter to work.  But how? It's very simple all you need is to check your Mother board and download the LAN driver ( Asus website ) for the Ethernet to work.
How to see your PC motherboard number or models? For me I open my PC case and check the motherboard models.
How to open your PC case?
Use your screwdriver to unscrew both thumbscrews holding the side panel onto the computer chassis. The screws are located on the back of the tower, near the side panel you are removing. Slide the side panel toward the back of the computer. Lift and remove the cover.

For me what I did :
[ Once you found your mother board models u need to surf from another PC to download the LAN driver into the USB and trasfer to your computer.]

Go here Asus Download
