No WiFi Adapter

#1
Hello,

I have a NEO Z83-4 Pro. I recently re imaged the pc because it was running out of space and needed to be updated. Now I do not have WiFi. I have no adapter for WiFi.

I followed the instructions from https://theminixforum.com/index.php?threads/neo-z83-4-manually-install-the-driver.31/ but in the directions it says go to Device Manager and update the driver.. I have no driver to update. I will attach screenshots of what I am seeing.

Hopefully someone can help me.

When you right-click the item with that yellow icon and "Update the driver", you may locate to "Drivers" folder, rather than "wifi driver".
Let me know if it will work.

Hi Martin

I had this problem with no wifi and a yellow exclamation mark on the WiFi device in Device Manager. I am running a fully updated Windows as of March 4th 2019, with the feature update to Windows 10, version 1809 and the 2019-02 cumulative update for .Net and Security update for Adobe Flash.

I was able to solve it following these instructions, but it was a bit confusing. I downloaded the Z83-4 CherryTrail-T3-64bit drivers and followed the instructions but when I tried to update the driver, Windows Device Manager says "The best drivers for your device are already installed". "Windows has determined that the best driver for this device is already installed. There may be better drivers on Windows Update or the device manufacturer's website".

I ignored that and followed the Readme.txt with the wifi driver that says to copy the 4345r6nvram.txt file to C:\Windows\System32\drivers
After I did that and rebooted, the wifi worked.

It would be nice if Minix could work with Microsoft to make this automatic. Copying a file into system32\drivers and rebooting reminds me of how things were in the 90s :)

Shouldn't it be a piece of cake to copy a file from one folder to another ;)

LOL ;).

EDIT: Do be serious, Microsoft's own in house departments can't even liaise & talk to each other without completely dicking things up ;)!!! Let alone work with 3rd party distributors.
