Updated Win XP to 7: network adapter driver issue

I updated Windows XP on my old laptop to Windows 7. After installing I tried to open internet connection but Win 7 says that it cannot find network adapter because of a missing driver. I tried to find network adapter from device manager but could not find one. My network connection was working fine on Win XP. What has happened, how to update my network adapter driver for Windows 7?

Edit after comments:

I found from Fujitsu's site, that my computer is not supported by Windows 7. So be it.

According to the Fujitsu site your laptop has a SiS 900 10/100MB network controller.

If you go the SiS site, they do not have any drivers for the network card, nor do they for Vista (which you can sometimes use). The 'newest' drivers they have are for Windows Server 2003 which I am pretty sure will not work with Windows 7.

It would seem unlikely that you will be able to make this work.

You may want to try using a PCMCIA wired or wireless network adapter.

This wired one by DLink has drivers for Windows 7 so it should work. http://www.dlink.com/products/default.aspx?pid=DGE-660TD&tab=3
