Fix 1: Download or update the 802.11n WLAN driver manually

You can manually download the 802.11n Wireless LAN network adapter from the manufacturer.

Some of the devices may come with a CD/DVD where you can install the driver on your computer. Otherwise, you can go to the manufacturer’s website, and then find the latest version of the driver to download and install it on your computer. For instance, if you buy this adapter from Broadcom, you can search for the Broadcom 802.11n driver from Broadcom’s website.

There’s another way you can manually download the 802.11n WLAN driver: Device Manager.

Device Manager enables you to view and manage the hardware device and driver software in your computer. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Right-click the Start button, then select Device Manager.
    win 11 right click start to open device manager
  2. In the Device Manager window, double-click to expand the category Network adapters and double-click on the 802.11n WLAN device.
  3. Select the Driver tab, then click Update Driver.
  4. Click Search automatically for drivers, Windows will then initiate a search online for the latest driver updates for the 802.11n WLAN.

    If it finds one, it’ll automatically download and install it for you. Follow any additional prompts or instructions provided by Windows during the driver update process.
  5. Once the driver update is complete, you may be asked to restart your computer to apply the changes.

Manually downloading the device drivers requires time and computer skills. If this method doesn’t work for you, don’t worry. We have another solution for you.
