“My laptop had a virus so I installed a new fresh version of Windows 7, now that is done I quickly realize that I can't access the internet due to there being no drivers installed. The wireless drivers and every other internet driver are not installed. I am trying to install from USB stick but not installing, please tell me what should I do?”--- Quoted from Spice Community

Lots of users can't access the internet after reinstalling Windows 10, Windows 8/8.1, Windows 7, Windows XP, and if you've updated to the new Windows 10, you've probably got this no internet issue.
