I have just done a clean reinstall of windows 7 home premium after a failed upgrade to 10. This was done on a 5 year old ASUS A53E Laptop. All went well and thanks to drive partition i was able to preserve user data.
However i have been unable to connect the internet either wired or wirelessly (primary connection method). The problem does not sem to be with my connection or the router but with the network adapter on the laptop. Reinstalling windows seems to have lost the 'internet' drivers (Network Adapter Drivers) andi cannot sem to find them again and reinstall them. The copy of windows i reinstalled seemed to include some drivers but when i tried to install them they wouldnt, giving me a 'Code 10' error.
I am guessing the drivers available on the machine are either not the right ones or are out of date. Either way i need to obtain new ones or otherwise fix the problem. That ironically means going online which obviously i cant do! How can i get the drivers i need and install them sucessfully on the laptop in question?
In case you were wondering i am on a different PC with an A1 internet connection. Not much help though for fixing the laptop!
