"Ethernet Controller" is the device which you plug your router/modem into for networking & internet access. Commonly called a "Network Card". This does need a driver. The fact that the entry is listed under "Other Devices" indicates that it's driver is not installed. If it was, it would be shown instead under "Network Adapters" by it's actual make & model (eg 'Realtek RTLxxx Family Fast Ethernet NIC', or something similar). Without the driver Windows doesn't know what brand or model it is, hence it won't work.
