How to Install Drivers without Network (Windows 10/7/8/8.1/XP/Vista)

Camilla Mo, in Driver Download
If your PC is missing network drivers, you can’t access the internet. In this case, you can’t search and download the network drivers using this PC. There are 2 ways you can use to download and install the network driver. For both ways, another PC with network is required. 

Way 1: Download and Install the Driver from Manufacturers

On the PC with internet connection, you can go to PC manufacturer’s website or network card’s manufacturer’s website to check for and download the correct driver. If you are using a brand computer, it is recommended that you go to PC manufacturer’s website first, as they may customize the driver. Download the driver to an external drive like USB flash drive, then transfer the driver to the PC without network. The downloaded driver will always be in self-install format. You just need to double-click on the setup file to install the driver.

Before you get started, ensure that you know the PC model or the network card model, and the specific operating system that you are using.
