Hi, thanks reply.

There is absolutely nothing. No values at all.

Yes, Windows 7 Home Premium x64, so I got the ISO file of that exact one.

I updated the Network Controller driver, it updated automatically clicking 'Update Now' it was Atheros driver, however that fixed nothing still can't see my wifi and the rest from this list remain:

Regards.

Thanks so much. Progesss!! After installing the Chipset, I can finally see my connections And list of drivers missing got smaller.



However, something must be missing still as you said yourself, as I got this error while connecting:



Thanks so much for the help, hopefully we can now fix it all #

( if anyone wondering how I got google drive I connected my mobile phone and tethered to get the drivers instead of getting them from desktop and then via usb )

Done, still failing to connect.
However that fixed 2 drivers from the original the list at least



I can only assume its the Ethernet Controller missing blocking the connection? Seems weird I guess, but that problem was here from start and still here.

Btw from the Wifi Driver list, early on the day I installed Realtek Wireless LAN Driver and now I installed Atheros Wireless LAN Driver to try. It didn't help, but could tthese two be installed at the same time? Not sure now.

Thanks for great help again, hopefully we can fix it

For the Ethernet one only code 28, but unknown there is more info(Location), see below:



EDIT: Plus the Unknown device with info on location has this Values in the Details tab:
