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 These types of problems could be due to missing, out-of-date or corrupt Network Adapter / WiFi Drivers.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.
