Hello,

I have this old computer with Windows 7. It doesn't support wireless networks, only wired, hence I cannot access internet from it anymore. Either the ethernet port is damaged or there is some software problem, I cannot figure out. Please help.



I tried system restore method and I found something interesting. (The restore method failed due to some error in files though)



Yeah, the problem is there since December 2019. We don't use this computer much and hence didn't bother about it much because of new laptop, but now I feel the need to get this thing working as it's just lying there useless.

Thank you!

Try identify the motherboard and go to the manufacturer's website driver page and see if there is a network driver available you can download on a connected PC and transfer the driver via usb.

If not sure what motherboard it is, use a utility such as Cpuz and look under mainboard tab to identify manufacturer and model.

Hello. Its Gigabyte M68MT-S2.
I checked on their official website.

This driver says that it includes LAN.
