So I got that Asus F455LA-WX046H laptop for free, (It's not used it was just a sale thing that if you buy 2+ iPhone 6 you also get a laptop)
Anyways, I got that laptop that came with windows 8,it was extremely slow, I've never seen such a slow computer in my life. I formatted it and downgraded to windows 7 because I like windows 7 better, and now the thing is that the WiFi(which worked before) Isn't working anymore, It doesnt detect the network card, I'm not sure which network card this thing has, On the box it says
"CB-802.11bgn_WW+BT4.0"
And when I check online it says
"Built-in Bluetooth(TM) V4.0
10/100/1000 Base T
Integrated 802.11 b/g/n"
Also, I tried connecting it directly to the modem, but nothing happened. still no internet.
I tried looking for drivers on my desktop and transfer it with a disk on key but I didnt really know what driver do I need since it doesnt mention any companys or anything.

I would appriciate some help here, Thanks!

Thank you
I suggest you use the desktop and download the drivers to a Fl;ash drive. Then use the flash drive to install on your laptop.

The drivers can be found here:

Good Luck

Thanks for the comment but, Did you actually read what I wrote?
I tried doing that, couldnt find the right driver, also, I downgraded to windows 7, these are 8.1 drivers, if I choose from "other" since windows 7 32bit is not on the list, I dont get any network drivers.
Also, It's not the laptop that I have, I have the
Asus F455LA-WX046H

Hey didn't your Mom teach you to not bite the hand that feeds you?
So why did it take two attempts to tell us the whole problem?
So the manufacturer doesn't support Win 7 32 bit.
That ASUS laptop uses a Realtek LAN driver for the wired connection and one of the following wifi chips Ralink Wirelewss LAN, Broadcom wireless LAN or Qualcom Atherus LAN perhaps you can find the drivers from the hardware support sites. The Realtek LAN drive should be easy to find and then you could use the free version of SlimDrivers to identify download and install the wifi driver.


Or burn a Wind 10 DVD on the desktop and upgrade to Win 10.
