Windows 7: getting windows default drivers to a machine without internet access

getting windows default drivers to a machine without internet access

Hi folks,
Here's the $0.000064000 question. I have a usb network adapter (RTL SU8192) I want to send to my ex's son the wifi adapter I set his computer up with died. catch is I don't remember the wifi password so I want windows to use the stored one if I download the realtek driver it will install an app and take over the connection. I know windows 7 has a driver on windows update, and I'm hoping that if I could download that to cd he could install the default windows driver and maybe then connect with the stored wifi password.
Any of you know how I could get a manual download of the driver files from windowsupdate for a stand alone machine?

those are standard drivers with the application. No I'm looking for the drivers from the windows update site that are usually less than 1 mb large (for 7 this driver is less than 400kb) but I'm trying to figure out how to download that without having to have internet access on the mashine.

well that way exactlly what I was looking for
Now that's what I call windows specific drivers (while it only list 7 it actually has entries for win 2000/xp and vista so it will work on all their computers)
Case solved
