Use the support cd of the motherboard. It contains all the necessary drivers for your ethernet controller and video controller. If you don't have the installer then visit the website of the motherboard brand and there download the right driver of the motherboard model and the operating system that will be used by it.

Since your wireless is working, the missing driver is for your ethernet port. Go to gateway support driver download (link below). Select your computer by following the on screen prompts and download the driver for you LAN port.

Emachine won't connect to the internet. Ethernet cable, router and modem all work just fine. problem is with computer. Check network adapters in device manager and no problem noted there. Why won't it...


first try to check if your wireless can actually detect a network, if it can try to remove ALLthe network that you have on your wireless network and try to add your network again, if still doest work try to uninstall and re install your wireless driver, if it still doesnt work try to restart your router, if still doesnt work try to do system restore to the point where your wireless was workin fine, lastly if still doesnt work try to contact your ISP for some configuration.
