    greetings all
    have done clean install on freshly formatted drive ( win7 premium upgrade from amazon )
    now unable to connect to internet
    device manager shows:
    ..other devices:
    - ? unknown device
    - ? usb network interface

    motherboard ms ms-7260
    router bt home hub version 1.0

    windows compatibility showed no problems after i updated various unrelated drivers- drivers were updated, working before win 7 install

    tried re-installing all newest available drivers after win 7 install ( none avail for usb interface, router )

    tried installing internet software from original bt disk- no success as incompatible, no updates available according to bt helpline staff- they had me checking, unchecking boxes, attempting to set up connections using win 7 network/sharing center- cant even get local network up.

    tried clean install of vista after reformatting drive- same problem remains in device manager !
    tried re- reinstalling win7 again ( you never know...)
    no joy
    all cables checked, router works on other vista computer with same cable.

    suggestions appreciated
