You will need to go down to driver network, It's hit and miss with this. I would try the Atheros drivers first. Then the Broadcom You may end up trying all of them to see which one installs and loads your wifi and network drivers since there are many models of your machine out there each with different wifi and network cards.

I tried two wifi first, but I will try your Atherosclerosis. also. I don't see downloads on flash drive. I have to start over. Di! 40mm not get good loads on flash drive.

Agreement was for $5.00 to open the account and another $31.00 when problem was resolved. You took $36.00 out of my paypal account right off the bat. I want $31.00 restored to my paypal account since you never resolved the problem.
