Title sort of sums it up, I had to reformat my HD, and now when I try to set up a network connection the wizard tells me I have to install network hardware first...I have a network card with the usb cord connected to it and it was working fine a few hours ago.

Every other time i've reformatted, I seem to remember it being as simple as plugging in the internet and it working fine - I don't get what's wrong. I don't have any software to go with the network card that I know of...
