Unzip the file and try browsing into it from missing driver.

If that fails try running it's Setup as Admin.

Good news on the WiFi front.....now I have WiFi working!.....sees the networks available...

Bad news so to speak, although doesn't really matter in my case as I don't use WiMAX is that I got message that WiMAX driver not installed and now it shows in Other Devices > Intel WiMAX Link 5150 as missing driver.....

So, either I leave it as it is now or install the WiMAX driver (if it's safe to do, ie, it won't screw up the WiFi...) or find a combo WiMAX/WiFi driver and install....

Thanks again for your help!

What I'd do is wait to see if Windows Updates detect and delivers a driver for it, and if not either resupply the driver you had before, or disable it in Device Manager so it won't slow you down searching for driver.

Glad you got the Wifi working. Was it in the IT Admin download zip file? Browsed into or installed?

  1. Click on the start button
  2. Type "msinfo32" (without quotes) in the search bar of the start menu, click the resulting link. It will open the System Information window.
  3. File>Save. In the "File Name" filed, put "MSINFO32" (without Quote), give the save location to desktop, and click the "save" button.
  4. Give the time for processing, it will save a .nfo file on your desktop.
  5. Zip it, and upload it following the instruction.
Here you go....Thanks for your help!

Hi ArchiMark. As you have solved the issue already, it is not very important, but the information is .....

ITEMVALUE
Name [00000013] Intel(R) WiFi Link 5150
Driver c:\windows\system32\drivers\netwns32.sys (13.5.0.6, 6.76 MB (7,087,616 bytes), 1/19/2011 1:28 AM)

The appropriate driver for you is here: Intel® WiMAX Adapters — Intel® PROSet/Wireless WiMAX Connection Utility

Quote:
This download is valid for the product(s) listed below.
  • Intel® Centrino® AdvancedN+WiMAX6250
  • Intel® Centrino®WirelessN+WiMAX6150
  • Intel® WiMAX/WiFi Link 5350 and Intel® WiMAX/WiFi Link 5150 products
And, the Marvell Yukon 88E8059 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller driver, yk62x86.sys also seems to be a bit backdated (3/27/2012). Search for possible updates .... seen the list in the earlier page in your post.

OK, will do. Thanks!.....

Yes, it was in the zip file I downloaded, but there were 2 choices of file to download. I choose the larger file. Smaller file was just the driver itself.

I forgot to browse, so, I installed using the Setup file I found in folder.

Thanks!

For the WiMAX and WiFi driver, I tried installing the driver file you pointed to 'ICS_x32.exe', but I get error message that it's not for the installed operating system...which is odd, since I downloaded file by clicking on the link for the Win7 32 bit version.....but if I use ICS_s32.exe, it installs OK and all is well....

As for the Marvell ethernet controller, when I click 'Update Driver' in Device Manager and let it search online for driver, it reports back that I already have the best driver for this device....get same message on several other drivers as well....

Thanks!

Good.

Hope it is not showing in Other Devices > Intel WiMAX Link 5150 as missing driver anymore? As you stated in Post #11?
