Ethernet controller///

Question

I did a fresh install of W7 Pro x64 and found the ethernet controller wasn't installed.  I went to Asus and downloaded the driver, it went through the install process, said finish.  I clicked finish but the ethernet controller still wasn't installed.  I tried three times each time uninstalling the controller but not go.  The motherboard is an Asus F2A55-M LK Plus.  Can anyone help.  Thanks.

Did you install the motherboard drivers, specifically. Normally, everything is on that one driver. If that doesn't work get all of your Windows updates, reboot a few times, and then delete the NIC from the control panel and reboot one more time. Hopefully, Windows would have found the driver by then and installed it upon reboot.

delete the NIC from the control panel

Computer is up to date.  How do you delete the NIC.  I looked in CP, even used CP search and found nothing.  What am I missing here.
