Hello, all! I am in dire need of help finding the right wireless driver for my custom computer I built. I had to do a factory reset for a dumb reason, and since then, I had to get all my drivers up to date manually, and now I am stuck with finding the network driver I need to connect to wifi. As the title says, I am running on Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit. I am also using a PCI-Ex16 Wireless card, and I am unsure of the manufacturer and whatnot. I am very new to computer repair and this i the first computer that this happened to. Any help or response would be helpful, don't hold back any questions! Thank you all in advance for reading this and taking interest in my problem!

use this to find out the card or go under device manager for the missing devices and under the device info is a pci devie id string. googling that info will tell you who made the card or the card info.

if you built ths pc you can take out the card and look at the name of it and goto the website and get the drivers, and this card should be a pci not a pci-ex16 not sure on that though.

Yes, I built it, but I had my computer guy replace the old USB dongle t connect to the internet with, with a PCIe card, and he didn't tell me what the exact name was, as I said, I am new to this and it was my first idea to repair it. Thanks for the interest in my problem though!

I'm not sure what you mean by a factory reset since it's a custom built machine. I agree with yoji on that one. Your probably using a PCI-e 1X. Since you built it do you still have the box the card came in or the driver disk for it? If not smor gave you some good advice.

I guess by factory reset, I meant a re-installation of Windows. And I took the card out and got the name now Im just in the process of finding the right drivers for the Rosewill RNX-N250PC2. It is PCIe 1 by the way, my bad.

Everything is back to it's former glory! Everything except one major flaw. Whenever I try to launch a game, any game, it says could not load direct3d? Any ideas on this? Sorry for replying on a solved thread but this must be fixed.

on clean install of windows you missing direct-x files needed for gaming or your missing the gpu drivers for your video card.
on a install of windows you need the motherboard driver cd or on a usb stick you need to make sure you have the chipset drivers for the motherboard...sound drivers..built in ethernet drivers and drivers for your wifi card and video card.
after you get online you install a anti virus protection then you need java and flash for most web pages now.

when you get online windows will download microsoft .net and service pack and any updates needed.
