I bought a notebook Asus X551CA. I installed Windows 7 Professional 64 bit, but when I went to download official drivers for Asus, I can download drivers only for Windows 8.

I installed Windows 7 and it works, except for the wifi and ethernet driver. I need to know that if I could resolve this problem installing driver for windows 7 of another series of Asus Notebook.

i don't want W8. I need W7.

Any suggests ?

have you tried to install the Win8 drivers? If yes, what happens? – magicandre1981 Dec 25 '13 at 18:31
Asus give me the drivers for windows 8, but when I insert cd an error message tell me "This drivers are not compatible with this OS", obv. – Kyrol Dec 26 '13 at 9:49
don't use the installer. Update/Install the drivers with the help of the device manager:… – magicandre1981 Dec 26 '13 at 18:30
I discovered the chipset of my notebook are Intel HM70 EXPRESS ( ). I installed it and now the bus PCI and LAN work, but it doesn't recognize the Wifi again (missing drivers). I MUST find that drivers, but I have no idea where! – Kyrol Dec 27 '13 at 14:09
this is the chipset. Go into the device manager, look at the properties and look for the hardware ID. Now go to a PCI database and look what device it is. – magicandre1981 Dec 27 '13 at 16:13

I came across this article from Google because I searched for the same drivers. The information wasn't very helpful but at the end of the day I found the drivers and decided to share :)

These guys provide all drivers needed

In case you are suspicious about the site above as I was -- you can download the drivers from manufacturers' sites

LAN (Realtek)

WLAN (Atheros)

Nice to see someone who knows how to get drivers from the chip manufacturer, instead of relying on the computer manufacturer or some third-party utility. – Jason Aug 6 '14 at 21:39

This Model has the same hardware, and all the Windows 7 drivers.


Tested on an x551 - all drivers are working.

good luck
