Windows 7 Network Problem


New Member
First off, here's my PC information:
Original System: XP
System type: 32-bit
Computer Model: Compaq SR1520NX
Modem: Realtek RTL8101E
I can't get on the internet! :(

Probable Causes:
Whenever I open Internet Explorer and it says "This page cannot be displayed", I diagnose the problem and it tells me that I need to "Install a driver for your network adapter". I'm guessing my modem is set for Vista and under, since this is Windows 7.
When I open "Device Manager" the "Other devices" menu is opened and it displays "Ethernet Controller". Maybe this has something to do with my connection issue...

Fact is, if the modem is outdated, I wouldn't be able to update it anyway because I can't get on the internet to start an Automatic Update.

If there is anyone out there kind enough to help me through this frustration, I would kindly appreciate it.
