Use a USB thumbdrive on another computer to download the wireless drivers from the asus website. If it is a desktop pc and you installed the wireless card after purchasing the computer then you will need to download them from the manufacturers website.
Then load them onto the fresh computer by transfering them on the usb thumb drive.
i have been to the site but have NO idea wot one i need?? there so many...when u say wireless card wot is it u mean....sry i just a silly girl and know a little but not enuff till pointed in right direction, i appreciate your time :-)
hi yes i can connect laptop to wireless but not the desktop, in device manager it has a yellow ! i have tried the asus vga discs but cant seem to do it.....it says i need to install ethernet controller
in device manager, try and get the hardware ID's from the ethernet device. you do this by selecting the device and right-click, properties. there should be a details tab with a drop-down selector that contains "Hardware IDs". hardware ids will look something like this:
Well its not the VGA driver, but the Asus disc might have network drivers on it in a different folder? I presume your desktop is the Asus machine that matches the disc... If you cant get it working, take the main box into a shop without all the attachments and just ask them to install a "LAN" card and plug the network cable into that instead of the original.
You need the Motherboard, or Mainboard CD. That will have the ethernet driver on it.
Is your PC a big brand name one (like HP or Acer), or one built by a smaller OEM or by the local PC shop? If big brand, what is it's model number? If smaller shop, you will need to remove the side panel and get make and model of the motherboard - it will be printed on it somewhere quite obvious.
Is the sound going on your PC? Probably not if the Ethernet isn't working - you will also need motherboard driver CD for that (or to download them from Motherboard manufacturer).
