How do I get Internet connection back after reformat?

serenitywizard
Reformatted HP dx 2250 desktop. Although I have the recovery and reinstall disks, the Ethernet drivers were not reinstalled. Called HP...waste of time... either put on hold forever, or got someone who did not understand. Tried using some of my older cards in PCI slots, but although Device Manager sees them, says no drivers installed? Tried getting drivers for them as well as ones from HP online, with same result. Emailed HP support...that was another futile expedition!

Thankfully, I still have my old ACER to fall back on! Any suggestions...this thing is not much good to me the way it is. Tried downloading HP drivers from ACER to jump drive and installing in HP, but no go. All other drivers ok, but no Internet connection. Router ok, since this ACER connected, plus wireless works on laptop. I'm confused. Help!!!
