Most times, with a modern computer, it will automatically install or re-install the drivers for your Ethernet as soon as you turn it on. Assuming this is not working for you, and if you happen to be on Windows 7, you get into your Control Panel, System, Device Manager, Network Adaptors.. find your Ethernet controller there, double click on it, and you will have several options in dealing with the driver. Keep after it. You'll figure it out..
If you have no internet because the ethernet controller was not installed, you will need to download the ethernet drivers from another computer.
To do this, you will need either the motherboard model or the ethernet controller model. Search google for your motherboard model, and then on the drivers page, find "LAN drivers". Download the drivers, save them to a usb and transfer and install them to your pc.
us.acer.com go to service, driver download, select your model, under that above the driver list, change OS from Vista to XP Pro x32, and download the LAN driver. That is your ethernet controller drivers. Since ethernet is your network controller, I'm assuming you need your wireless NIC controller aswell, it will be listed under Wireless LAN. If you don't know/remember the make, download all of them and try each one til one works.
