I recently upgraded my Operating System from the preloaded Vista to
Vista Business. It did not give me the option to upgrade so I just
reinstalled since it was a new computer anyway. Now I can not connect
to the internet. I click "Diagnose Connection Problems" and then get a
message that reads "This computer does not have a network adapter
installed and configured"

I went to the Computer Management/Device Manager and under Other
devices I see a yellow ! next to a number of options.

1. !Base System Device
2. !Base System Device
3. !Base System Device
4. !Coprocessor
5. !Ethernet Controller
6. !Network Controller
7. !SM Bus Controller
8. !Unknown Device
9. !Unknown Device

I right click Network Controller and then click "Properties". It
reades "The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)

So I click Reinstall Driver...
I click Search Automatically and it reads "Windows was unable to
install your Network Controller.

Please Advise. Thanks for your help as I am new to this forum.

You'll need to go to the manufactures website (of your computer or motherboard) and download and install all the drivers applicable to your model.

You'll need to do this for the Network card drivers first from a working machine. Put them on a CD and/or removable media and install them on the target machine. After that you can use this machine to download and install the rest.
