Installed Windows 7, No internet drivers

Hello,

I recently bought the MSI Apache 003 which has windows 8.1 on it. I didn't like windows 8.1 so I decided to downgrade to windows 7. I installed it and everything worked fine, until it finished setup. There are no drivers on it and I'm not sure which ones to get. I've looked for awhile now and can't find them. Im using wireless connection.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Nate

NVIDIA Geforce GTX860M,
and the chipset are all that I could find, Mobile Intel® HM87

And I now hate msi. Sorry friend, that is all kinds of wrong. They should have drivers available... Keep hunting, and pair whatever you can find from the specs on their website...

I installed it and that went well. I'm still not getting internet. So I went into network settings and it has the test network speed option, but it says i need flash. how do i get flash on there without internet?

download and transfer an offline install from whatever internet ready device you're using now. But flash to get network? That sounds odd...

ethernet should usually work pretty much right off, as it's pretty much plug and play, but I am sadly leaving my element with that whole flash thing, so...

no, no worries, I have dealt with plenty of stuff in this same sense, fix one thing, another dies or takes 4 hours to understand... S'why I'm here.

From what I could tell, the qualcomm I sent you to IS your network device manufacturer, and the Killer *** was the unit itself.

Tell you what, what is your exact computer type? is it that apache pro 003, or not? You can find this by googling the serial number. Once we have that, we will be closer to a solution.

Also, I can't stay on forever, I have work tomorrow and it's close to midnight here... but I'll do what I can.

The killer did fix the ethernet controller drive, but i still have the network controller if that makes any difference.

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/

That^ should (crossing fingers) be for your wireless, just hit wireless networking for option 1, intel wifi products for option 2, and Intel® Wireless-AC 3160 for option 3.

Ha! I hope... Your killer *** was actually the LAN netowrk, still don't know why it won't work, but meh.

also, went to msi homepage, and looked up specs to find this info. the killer LAN thing was my mistake, it said LAN right next to it, but yeah.

O please work, o please work, etc...

the first one (..._Ds64) is driver only, the second one (..._s64) is driver and software bundle for it.
your choice.

see if you can get into change adapter settings and make sure that the wireless adapter is enabled (disabled will have red x at bottom), after that, see if you have any software that can activate it outside of the network center.

I think I've spammed this thread enough. You have a good night, and sorry I couldn't help more.

Cheers!

If that doesn't work btw, I'm sure some awesome guru will pick up where I left off.
