Have you tried to get device manager to find it? if the computer you are trying to get the driver for isn't connected to the internet already you can't get device manager to find it.

Pick no, then have it search the windows directory. Is the board nVidia based or does it use Marvell LAN or some other strange one?

are you using a usb connection to a SBC/yahoo broadband modem to get online. If so then you won't
find your lan connection untill it is being used.

thats it. Now highlight the ethernet controller card and hit properties and select to uninstall . It will prompt that you are going to remove it from your system and answer yes and let it remove itself. then reboot and on reboot let windows found new hardware wizard take over. when it selects to find the right drivers select from a list of known drivers. a window will pop up and on the left look for the name of the network card...you do know what it is? right. then a new window will pop up showing only the drivers for that card and select the one you need. and let it install it.
