A yellow triangle in the Device Manager usually means that Windows doesn't have a device driver for that device. The driver is a small piece of software that allows Windows to talk to the hardware; it's required for each device in the computer. I'm going to assume you have another computer with reliable internet access.

In order to help, you'll need to provide the manufacturer and model of each network adapter in your computer. It may be simplest to take it to a local shop and will certainly be quickest. However, if you'd rather do it yourself, go ahead and post a list here and I'll help you sort out which drivers you need.

The most reliable way to collect the information would be to open your PC and read the labels on the actual card.

Just short of that would be to use the Belarc Advisor:
  • Dowload Belarc Advisor from their webpage (click the big "Click here to Download" button at the top right)
  • Install the Advisor program by running the program you just downloaded on the computer with the problems
  • Run the program and save the report
  • Copy and paste the "Communication" section here - it should list your modems and network cards.

Hope this helps!
