A Network Adapter / WiFi Driver is software which enables communication between your computer and your network adapter or network interface card (NIC). Most modern NICs support wireless connectivity, or WiFi. Common network issues include failure to dectect or connect to the network or slow or unreliable internet connections. These types of problems could be due to missing, out-of-date or corrupt Network Adapter / WiFi Drivers. After upgrading from one version of Windows to another, problems can occur because your current driver may work only for the prior version of Windows. Downloading and installing the latest driver for your specific Network / WiFi Adpater make and model can fix these types of errors.
Many Network Adapter / WiFi problems can be fixed by updating the drivers. After you upgrade to Windows 10, problems can occur because your current driver may work only for the prior version of Windows. There are two ways you can update your Network Adapter / WiFi drivers.

Option 2 (Recommended): Update Network Adapter / WiFi drivers automatically - Even computer newbies can update drivers with just a few clicks of a mouse. Use trusted software to identify, download and install the newest driver updates for your PC in one step. Your old drivers can be backed up and restored if you encounter any problems.

To get the latest Network Adapter / WiFi driver, including Windows 10 drivers, you can choose from our list of most popular Network Adapter / WiFi downloads or search our driver archive for the driver that fits your specific Network Adapter / WiFi model and your PC’s operating system.
Once you have downloaded the new driver, next remove the current Network Adapter / WiFi driver. On a Windows PC, you do this by using a built-in utility called Device Manager. It allows you to see all of the devices attached to the PC, and the drivers associated with them.
In Windows 8.1 & Windows 10, right-click the Start menu and select Device Manager
