Hello. I build this computer a year ago and upgraded slightly each time I had the chance. I upgraded to WINDOWS 10 and worked find for a while until my os corrupted and I then installed WINDOWS 7. I lost all my drivers but luckely i had the cds. But as I went to get my wifi card cd I couldnt find it. I tried looing everywhere but I couldnt find it. So i got my brothers laptop and googled my drivers but couldnt find them. Please help.

*Extra info*
On device manager i get the following values for the hardware ids

PCI\VEN_1814&DEV_5392&SUBSYS_53921814
PCI\VEN_1814&DEV_5392&CC_028000

There are generic drivers allready on your comp.
You just need to know what your actual version.

On your problem device >> update >> browse >> let me pick >> UNCHECK show me compatible devices >>
Scroll down to Railtek click on it, (there are 2) in the right hand box look for the 802.11 wireless card select

Hi Strob,
Use system restore to revert.
If you can find the ACTUALL make/model of the Ethernet controller and the wireless card you can download the drivers from the manufacturers site to a USB and update the drivers from that.

I reverted but can't find a specific name as on the box all it says is PCIe series wifi card 300mb/s

Ok
Try this intel link (Ralink 5392 pci card)
It might also give you your ethernet controller one as well.

You can download from here, you have to give them a name and email,

PCI/ mPCI / CB(RT2860/ RT2760/RT2790/ RT309X/ RT35X2/ RT539X/ RT3290/ MT7630) - MediaTek

Mediatek bought Ralink so that's why that site is Mediatek.

Adding Mini PCIE WiFi expansion card
Hi My motherboard got a port called Mini PCIE. It looks similar to the standard PCIE port but is much smaller (I guess that's why it's called mini :D) AND it appears to be tilted 90 degrees to the right if I'm right. So I would have to place the card vertically. Space seems to be limited. Of...
