Hi, Ive my WiFi kept dropping me every 2 minutes or so, and I could fix it by resetting the network every time (it got so bad that’s really all I could downs keep resetting it over & over) Anyway, just as this dude who had same problem a cpl years before me, i believe the inky difference is the computer. Mine is a Dell Inspiron15 3542 with 64-bit & has windows 8.1.

Found what I thought was a reputable source to fix what it sounded like a simple fix with some straightforward directions. Well, here I am, just as dudeman was back in ‘17 also. Those instructions had me uninstall and delete the network adapter via device manager. When I restarted my laptop, it didnt reinstall it as promised and now Im pretty much screwed. Itried to install the new driver but without online capability - humph. Stuck! Please, if it’s at possible for me to fix this as quickly and simple and the prior dude did, Id be on Cloud9 — So, just like he said:
• If theres anyone who does have an idea what he/she is doing, please pull ease PULLEASE let me know. Thank you!

Although messy to do on a phone you should able to download the driver to the phone and then connect the phone to the PC via USB. Most phones you can configure to appear as a storage device to the computer. The computer should just see it as a file directory.

I should clarify. I can see the downloaded network driver file in the Files app when looking in my iPhone, but when it’s plugged in to the Dell and I open the Apple iPhone “storage” folder, I can’t find it in there anywhere. It should be shouldn’t it?

Also, I’ve looked all over in the laptop and haven’t had any luck finding it. Don’t know what I’m doing wrong - it’s GOTTA be there somewhere, I’ve just run outta ideas of place to look for it. Let me if have an have an idea where I’m dropping the ball.
*Thank you very much for helping me with this
 
I only have used android and even that I have to lookup on the internet how to do stuff like this. I know on android there are options as to what the computer can see, I know there is a difference between files I put on the internal sim and the ones that go into the data storage card. I have been so lazy and not learned anything about phones.
