Windows 7: Get an error when trying to install the driver for my wireless adapter

if there is another slot on the motherboard you could try that. you could try using a usb wireless adapter to see if that works for you. here are some you can look at. not much money. can you not just use a wired connection as that would be faster than wireless?

No there's only one slot and my computer is far from the router so I cannot use a wired connection. I was thinking about a USB however I read that cards are faster?

that could be true but I still would try a usb wireless adapter. you probably could get one from a electronics store if don't work for you can just return it.

that would be up to you if you want to try another wireless card. the usb adapter might work just fine for you.

How far from the router? How near are you to other wireless networks in your area.

I had the same issue with dropped connections when I was using a wireless network card at my workplace in a room with no other hard wired connection available. The connection was dropping because people in nearby buildings were using the same router channel. So try changing the channel. You'd have to log in to the router to do that.

Scan for nearby networks that might cause interference.

Forget my last post. I missed what you posted regarding the error message.

I keep on reading that USB adapters are inferior because they are not as fast, and they overheat after longer periods of time which is making me doubt getting one. So why do you think I should be getting one? Sorry if I sound rude, I just want to know both sides

I have used one before and it worked great was never hot or even warm. Plus can get them cheap. I am not telling you to go buy one that's up to you. Was just a suggestion. One way to test.
