First question. How many drivers in a computer? A lot. There many software drivers for just about everything. If your asking about the network adapter, there should only be one driver.

As for your other question, where can I find it? Are you asking where to find on the web? If so, look at the manufacturer's web site. However, I have this feeling you have downloaded it and can not find it on your computer. If this is so try this:

For Firefox....Click on "tools" (at top), then options. A box will come up. Look under "Main" and look at downloads and where it says "save file to." This will tell where it is.


For Internet explorer: Tools, then internet options. A box will come up. Look at "General Tab" Look for Browsing History and click on "settings" button. It will show pathway to Temp Folder.

Another option is to update the driver. Go to Control Panel>system>hardware>device manager>network adapters, then find the driver for it and click on "update."

Hope this helps.

"System" refers to the computer.

The manufacturer's name and model are generally listed on it.
