Need help finding drivers for

Hi,

I just made a fresh Win 7 install and im missing the drivers for my Qualcomm Atheros QCA9377 Wireless Network Adapter. I found this site QUALCOMM / ATHEROS drivers for Microsoft Windows (Atheros的驅動程序) and clicked on the QCA9377 link under the "QUALCOMM ATHEROS WIRELESS DRIVERS" section and it took me to a page with multiple downloads. Ive have absolutely no idea where to go from here, does anyone know which driver i should download fro my computer?

Assuming it`s a laptop (I know bad idea) all your drivers are at the manufacturers website.

As Scott says, posting a link to your PC would do a world of good, how can you expect us to guess what you have.

And when there are multiple drivers listed, you just download each, one at a time and install it, having opened device manager to see if the driver installs on the hardware.

If that process works you simply go back and delete the downloaded drivers when you`re done.

And sometimes if all else fails, run windows update, it installed one for me I could not find at HP for this ProBook

The Hardware ID is device specific. You can (usually) use the hardware ID along with a variety of tools (including a google search) to try and lookup what the hardware is in order to find the right driver.

Have a look at Device Manager - Finding Unknown Devices. Use it to determine the hardware ID of your wireless card. You can copy/paste the hardware ID here and i can have a look for you as well.
