I have been painstakingly searching the web for answers with no result!!

I rebooted and reinstalled windows 7 on my pc. I am running windows 7 ultimate 32-bit on a Sony Vaio intel pentium CPU B950.

It all works fine apart from the the wireless or network adapters drivers!

I managed to install Realtek PCIe GEB network adapter driver and still not success in the computer reconginizing any wifi connection

On device manager 'other devices' tabs: network controller, pci device, pci simple comuunications controller, sm bus controller and unknow device they're all have a ! sign next to it which I'm assuming they're not installed.

Now to the question: Is the Realtek PCIe GEB the right driver for my computer? If so how can i resolve the other devices to work? if not where could I find the driver for this??!!

Please I'm going mad, thank you for all your help and support

On Device Manager, I can't find a tab that says 'WI-FI' network. On the 'network controller' tab I follow the steps you told me and this is what It says:






  • The official Sony support page provides a Wi-Fi driver. Did you try installing it? – and31415 Apr 18 '14 at 17:21
  • Cheers and tried that one but Im running 32-bit and can only find 64-bit drivers on sony official support. Any other ideas please? – user316684 Apr 20 '14 at 14:02
  • Open the Device Manager, locate the Wi-Fi network card and open the Properties dialog. Switch to the Details tab, and check what's the hardware ID. Then post here the value. – and31415 Apr 20 '14 at 14:41
  • Click on this link. Double check for your model number on the top-right of the page. Good luck – user373251 Sep 29 '14 at 3:08
