You just need the driver for the Wireless or Ethernet (if wired) method you use to connect as Windows Updates will update the rest once you get online to do all Updates.

Be sure to put in your exact model or Tag number to get the most accurate drivers under Network, LAN or Wireless/Ethernet.

Yes, on the Downloads page select Win7 32 bit. Try Broadcom or Atheros Wireless LAN driver to see which installs, then connect to your network via the wireless icon in bottom right System Tray.

Do all optional and Important Windows Updates with several reboots, then check Device Manager for any missing drivers.

If it doesn't specify which in Device Manager then either try installing each until it works, or trace the maker using Hardware Identification.

This is why I specfied to back up the wireless driver ahead of time in the tutorial. What was so hard to understand about that? Or do you ask for help so you can ignore it until you get in trouble?
