I have check device manager and it is there but not being seen. It also says that there is no matching driver when I install the driver.

I have check device manager and it is there but not being seen. It also says that there is no matching driver when I install the driver.

Please quote what Device Manager has for Device status. Put it on a line all by itself.

 

Is this what you used for the driver? Quote that message separately too.

Well the driver is showing up in the device manager, and yes that is the driver that I downloaded that is in your reply.

Re: Wireless adapter not working...

I would like exact quotes of the messages.

 

(1) The one in Device Manager (the "Device status").

 

(2) And the one that occurs when you attempt to install the driver.

 

Please don't bury those message. Put each on a separate text line.

 

(Microsoft messages rarely mean what they say.)
