I just reloaded win7 32-bit on a new HDD on this machine, the LAN drriver installed but none of the 4 wireless drivers listed on their site installs:

I went to PCI Database and searched for the correct Network Controller driver [Vendor 10EC and Device 8176 which led me to this here:

I removed the three x64 files from the win7-l1c-2.1.0.21-whql folder on the desktop and pointed to it but it is saying "driver not found", help please?

Vendor 10EC is Realtek. PCIdatabase.com came up with RTL8188CE Chip Description: Realtek RTL8188CE Wireless LAN 802.11n PCI-E NIC

I had tried that but all that led me to was an "audio" driver?

There isn't anything to click on to download the file? Does it work on your end?

Go to my link in Post#4. It is the fourth from the bottom. Look for the blue heading of RTL8188CE. Then click the Global link for 2007.12.0419.2013.

 

Or from the Realtek Home page Click Downloads > Communications Network IC's > Wireless Lan IC's > WLan NIC > IEEE 802.11bgn > Software > Check the box for RTL8188CE then Go.

Thanks John, that works, just when i thought I had learned how to get the correct drivers after the last thread, for my knowledge, mind telling me how you were able to arrive at that driver since all that Vendor id did was lead to the realtek page with only the audio driver showing?

If you find the Vendor is Realtek for Wireless problems there is only one link on the page that leads to the Wireless software and that is the Communications Network IC's. I am not sure why it lead to the Audio section. Glad the driver worked for you though.
