Windows 7 features automatic update of the drivers using a big database of drivers but in order for this function to work correctly, you will need to establish a working Internet connection because the Windows Update connects to the Internet in order to download drivers. If the Windows Update does not successfully install the correct driver then you should install an official one from the developer’s website but because this network component belongs to a laptop, you should check for drivers on the support page of the brand of your laptop. You will have updated drivers for your product. After you download the drivers, make sure you run it with Run as Administrator option (right click on the driver) for a proper driver installation.
