How to Fix Network Adapter Drivers and Make Internet Running

No Driver for Network Adapter. How Do I Get My Internet Running?

"I just installed Windows 8 on my brand new build. It's telling me I'm missing network adapter drivers and therefore cannot connect. How do I get the necessary drivers without internet? Seems like a vicious circle. And for those wondering, I posted this from my phone. I'm using a hardline for my computer. No WiFi. Help!"

This is really a common problem for those who don't have a driver disc which came with the Windows system.  After a clean Windows install/restore, the most ordinary gadget to make computer running is the internet access, then all can be down on the internet. I mean, you can download needed programs, search for needed information, etc.

But as is said in the above, if there is no drivers, you cannot connect to the internet; Without the internet connection, you are unable to download drivers on your computer. What a vicious circle!

How to Fix Network Driver Problems?

We can fix all drivers but network drivers by Windows Update, Device Manager Update or driver finder software through an available internet. But what if there is no internet connection? Let's explore the tricks.

# 1 One way is to make clear which driver you need and download it from manufacture's website or other authorized sites using another network-available computer. Save the driver installer (it should be end with zip or exe) on a hard drive and transfer the installer to your computer to install.

# 2 Alternatively, the other easier way is to use an automatic driver finder software DriveTheLife for Network Card, a supplement program of DriveTheLife.

  • Download DriveTheLife for Network Card from another network-available computer and save it on a hard drive.
  • Transfer the installer to your computer and double click to install it.
  • In the process of installing DriveTheLife, it would download and install correct network drivers according to your network adapter.

How to Fix Device Driver Problems with One Click

Sometimes, your computer just can’t work properly and you even don’t know what is wrong with it. In most cases, it is the problem of hardware drivers that makes your computer  not working.  Though Windows 7 and Windows 8 has inbuilt driver support for many hardware devices, there is still a big chance that the inbuilt support can’t troubleshoot the problem. You need a more powerful fix for it. 

Common Fixes for Driver Problems We Have Learnt Before

Since driver problem is a common problem on computers,  we can get various solutions for it by searching on google. The general fixes are listed in the below:

1. Windows Hardware Troubleshooter

The first thing to try is to use the Windows automatic hardware troubleshooter.  Open it as follows:
Start > Enter “fix hardware” in the search box > Choose “Find and fix problems with devices” from the search results.

It should be a Window like in the picture. Then Next,  it will start detecting problems and check for missing and corrupted drivers.

All installed devices will be searched through and if there is something wrong detected with this troubleshooter, it will offer a choice to “Apply this fix” or “Skip this fix”. This is a great fix if it works! However, if it does not work, read on.

2.  Update Drivers

The method most commonly suggested and used is to update the driver for your hardware that is not working.  There are 3 methods introduced to update your drivers: through Windows Update, Download from manufacture’s website and install it yourself, through free software DriveTheLife.

However, you can also do the driver update by this direct video tutorial of how to update drivers on Windows 8/7/XP/Vista with One Click for Free.

3. Fresh Install of Windows

If the problem is so stubborn that we can’t solve it with the above two methods,  maybe someone would pick the worst but 100% efficient method: do a clean install of Windows system.  That is OK but not suggested here because I just want to introduce you the one-click way. 

What is the One-click Way of Troubleshooting Driver Problems?

You may think that it is impossible to fix driver problems with just one click. But this is true to DriveTheLife, a free and professional driver updater and manager.  Just do as follows and download it to use for proof.  
  • Install it just like any other software
  • When install is done, launch it. It will start the automatic scanning without any advanced configurations
  • If there is something wrong with your hardware device drivers, like driver is missing, corrupted/broken, it will identify the problematic driver(s) and offer an option “Repair”.  Click Repair, all the problematic drivers will be fixed!
