When you install Windows 7, your install source may not have drivers for your networking hardware.
This means that the install process skips the step where it goes online and looks for all the "best" drivers for your hardware. After the install was done, I manually added the networking driver, and I was able to use windows update and download all the updates I could find.
After this, I still had to manually go back into device manager and tell Windows 7 to update drivers for a few devices by using the Internet connection. The point of the question is that I had to 1) Know which devices could be updated (or guess) and 2) Try to update them one at a time
Is there a way to tell Windows 7 "OK, there is an internet connection now, go back and look for the latest drivers for ALL devices, without my having to click-through each and every one in the device manager?"
