So just what do I mean by this? Often times, on Windows Update, Drivers are already available for your device, so why not just install a NIC or WiFi driver and let Windows Update take care of the rest of the dirty work? You have to update your computer anyway so why not.
Worth a try and much easier then searching left and right for those drivers.

Sometimes the WHQL-certified drivers are not nearly as good as updated non-WHQL drivers. (WHQL certification means very little IMO...) Windows Update only provides WHQL-certified drivers, and in my experience (especially with regards to laptop video) doesn't even find the latest WHQL revision.
I don't think I've ever received an up-to-date driver from Windows Update - it is in my experience consistently out of date by a significant period of time compared to getting the latest drivers from the device vendor.
