Gateway lt31 wireless network adapter driver


Dec 1, 2009
I purchased this Gateway LT31 from best buy last summer. It came with vista home basic on it if I remember correctly, so I promptly installed the windows 7 rc1 over it since it was released right around the time I got it. So a few days ago I decided to install a fresh copy of windows 7 since it was getting a little crowded and still had some of the bloatware on it because I hadn't really been using it a lot. Everything installed fine, chipset and other drivers installed fine and everything is working great.. except my wireless network adapter.

Here is the gateway support page for the drivers: Vista (32-bit)

(chose the drivers for vista because if you choose windows 7 they drivers are different because they changed hardware post 7 release)

I have installed all the network drivers from gateways support page for the netbook to no avail, and I can't find anywhere that says which specific network adapter it is so I can't exactly look elseware online for drivers.

As of now in device manager it says there are no installed drivers for my wireless network adapter and the slide/switch to turn it on and off does nothing.

Any ideas?

Any help if greatly appreciated, thanks in advanced.
