    WiFi Adapter Missing


    So my only network adapter showing under device manager is the Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller.

    No matter what I do (numerous restarts, run as administrator, etc) I cannot get the WiFi adapter to download from the HP site.

    I have an HP G6-1b79dx Windows Professional x64.

    I click through the agreements, I overwrite existing files as I've tried this multiple times, it downloads (sometimes says it installed incorrectly but I ignore it as it says) and then I restart. When I'm back on, no changes or installation at all occurred.

    Going by your first post its the Realtek Local Area Network (LAN) Driver you need to download .. Or are you missing both Drivers

    The only driver I have is the family controller.

    Then download the Realtek Local Area Network (LAN) Driver .. Not the WiFI Driver
