Didn't it come with a driver?

by seanferd In reply to Wireless

Those ship with Win 7 on them.

I would check any optical disks or restore partitions or installation folders on the HDD for this. Or just go to the PB support page for your exact model and download it.

Wow. I can barely get PB's sites to load.

But from what media did you re-install Win 7? The PB OEM media, however it came, should have the driver.

Ugh. I can't get PB UK to load at all. Timeout, interruptions, and gateway errors.

If you installed from PB media, are you sure the driver is not loaded? What do you see in Device Manager?

Notebook → Easynote → EN TJ74 → pick your Win 7 32 bit OS version.

I tried with 7 32-bit Home Basic, and I see an Atheros wireless driver. <b>Scroll down</b>. Use the inner scrollbar in the little file display window.

7 32-bit Home Basic driver:

Some thoughts.

Once you install that driver, if you get no joy, delete the bad wireless from Device Manager and reboot. See if it pick the right driver.

Make sure the wireless is turned on when installing, maybe. (Laptop wireless switch.)

Does ipconfig /all turn up a wireless adapter?

Well Do

Been driving me nuts that I can't find the driver, at work at the moment, don't finish for another 2 hours, if not I am going to take a hammer to the thing, when I installed ubuntu 10.4 on it everything worked wireless in all, never had to change anything, then when you but winblows on you have problem after problem Hence why I have moved to MAC

Good luck!

Hope it works for you.

Funny, that. I've never had to go hunting for drivers when installing a non-Windows OS, either. For windows, I always make sure I keep an updated archive of OEM drivers for any machine. They disappear from the internet sometimes.
