what these drivers are?

Hello , when I check to see if driver updates are available online by clicking the(update driver) option in device manager I get a warning saying driver updates found but publisher can't be verified .

I also encounter some drivers that updated without a warning so I'm confused as what to do.

I also need assistance in finding what these drivers are listed under on the Asus download page .

Thank you for your assistance

Hi, Welcome to Seven forums.

Regarding the error, it might mean that the driver doesn't have a digital signature or has been signed with a digital signature that wasn't verified by a certification authority. You should only install this driver if you got it from the manufacturer's disc. BTW, which driver are you trying to update. You can simply get it from the manufacturer's site.

And, for the Wifi you should select Wireless from the manufacturer's site.

The drivers that say there is an update available are the circled ones in my first screenshot . So your saying those can be found under Wireless?



I do not have a Windows installation disk so I need to know which drivers are the right ones for the circled ones in my FIRST screenshot.

Why do you want to update drivers, is something not working? Just because there is an update available doesn't mean you need to install it.

You see, now that is information that I didn't know about, I always thought use the latest drivers.
