  3. Go into Control Panel>System then Hardware>Device Manager if XP or straight to Device Manager if Vista or Windows 7. Scroll through the list to Network Adapters and right click the wireless adapter. CLick the Driver tab and then on the Update Driver button and let it search the web for a replacement driver.

    If that fails, click the Details tab, then scroll to Hardware IDs and note down the four characters after VEN for Vendor and the four which follow DEV for Device. Go to http://www.pcidatabase.com and input those details in the relevant boxes and you should be led to the right manufacturer's site for the correct driver.

  4. ok im not very "tech" oriented i went to the website and enter the info but it didn't take me to a website that i could download the divers it wanted me input some information and im not sure were to look for the information at so if u could help a bit more that would be great

    thanks


  5. The site is harder to navigate in some instances more than others, depending on what information the manufacturers provide. It might be quicker to post the VEN and DEV and I'll see if I can chase the driver down.

  6. VEN_14E4 & DEV_4318

    i think thats what u need

    edit: thankyou for trying to find this for me

    Here you go:-

    Your DEV 4318 is second on the list in this group so pick your choice between Download 1 or 2 and you should get the righ tdriver from the safest place, which is always the manufacturer.
