Hello Networkproblem,

You'll need to get your network drivers from this SAMSUNG support website for your laptop using another PC or device, then transfer it to the Samsung Laptop using a USB Thumbdrive or an external HDD.

Hope that helps!

I just tried the exact same thing & surprise surprise, no drivers recognised by 7.
Tried to down load drivers from Samsung but only get part zip files & of course no zip program in 7 so tried to install zip program, part file needs internet to complete - what the **** were these numpties thinking when they did this, if you need a network card driver what is the point of giving part file then requiring internet connection to complete???????
Can anyone point me to a site where I can get a complete driver file for the network card or wifi??
Many thanks,
Frustrated!! :)

There are loads of different drivers.
Depends on what the OEM built into your system.
Need to know the pci/ven info from here, (see screenshot)

Problem is until you have them installed you can't find out what they are, just that you have a few items which are not installed.
Managed it eventually by downloading "", this got my wifi working so now I can start hunting for all the other drivers I need.
Many thanks! :)
