if it is try this out: go to Device Manager... right click your missing device (it'll have a yellow error) do Driver search and specify where your driver is and try that....

put all the drivers in a folder where you can access them on your desktop.

right click on 'my computer'
click on the 'hardware' tab
click on the 'device manager' button
where you see 'network adapters' right click and hit 'scan for hardware changes'
if it finds them it should go into the install drivers prompt, point it towards that folder with the drivers in them.
