Internet Drivers

Hey. I've just reinstalled my Windows, and the only drivers that I need to install are to get internet working.

They don't install automatically by themselves, so I have to find them and install manually. I'm guessing this has to be some kind of Ethernet driver for my WiFi/Internet adapter?

This laptop was custom built and I did not receive any driver CDs with it.

Does anybody know where can I find those? I've spent 4 hours looking for them already, nothing.

I've used numerous Driver Detection software, but they only say that I need Realtek drivers - that's about it, so not much help at all.

Anybody has any ideas how to get those damn drivers, and especially know which ones I need? Where can I look up what the hell do I need?!

Thanks people, very much appreciated!

Hello... realtek has a website... open up your Laptop and look at the numbers on your chip... Look in your BIO's for LAN/motherboard information... check your Bill of sales... call the Custom shop where your computer was made... Look at the device signature ID numbers reporting to Windows, and do a google search with those numbers... keep trying different Realtek wireless driver installs.

What is the make and model?
The laptop manufacturers web sight should have all the drivers.

You probably need a chip set driver, also.
What operating system?

Windows 7

Model is custom made - Optimus IV. If it was one of the popular ones, there wouldn't be a problem... Thanks!

Easiest way is to plug it into an ethernet cable and run windows update - that should get most if not all of what you need.

I've got all the drivers except for ethernet/wifi or whatever they are. I have no idea where to get them or what they are. I can't believe how incredibly frustrating it is...

No, windows update didnt work too.

I'm going mad here...

I also can't open my laptop, because I have 3 year warranty.

If the laptop has a centrino sticker try the intel drivers, if not try the realtek drivers
