Hi Guys

So here is the thing. I reinstalled windows 7 (formatted harddrives) on a gamingstation i bought used to get rid of all his crap. Of course this wiped all the drivers which i hadn't taken into account. i found the Realtek driver useful for getting the internet-connection working again, but i am still to find the right driver to get Wifi working again. i am quite noobish at this so i hope you can help, as i have a hard time figuring out which network adapter the PC uses and therefore have a hard time figuring out which driver to use.

Hi Mads

Whats your Motherboard Model Number?

To identify model number download and install CPU-Z here .

It will tell all  information about hardware.

Then Search drivers by your motherboard name and model number.

As confirmed by the post above, you will need the motherboard drivers.

It's often easiest to just glance into the machine and look at the brand and model and download the drivers from that manufatiruer, for your particular model.

That being said, the Wifi device may not have been included in the purchase of the mobo and could very well be an addon, so if it is in a PCI slot or a USB port, you may have to remove it to get the brand and model, so as to find the manufacturer's drivers,

Sometimes, Windows Updates can find them for you.


All is well in Paradise.

Ok so i found that i use msi fm2-a75ia-e53 and i install the Atheros WiFi-driver it needed so i could connect to wifi. but the connection really sucks, both via wifi and via cable. every other device in the house is running fine. The PC with the problems is as mentioned completely wiped so i dont know why i am having this problem. i connects to google, no problem, everything is is close to impossible to connect to.

 If it can connect to Google no problem but not other sites, try using Open DNS on the computer and see if it helps.

 

https://use.opendns.com/#win7

 

Flush the DNS cached after changing

 

  • Click on Start, followed by All Programs, and then Accessories.
  • Right-click on Command Prompt and choose Run as Administrator.
  • In the Command Prompt window type in the following command and press Enter:
  • ipconfig /flushdns
