    Acer Aspire 7741G-6426 Model MS2309/MS2310; InviLink Nplify IEEE 802.11 b/g/n drivers needed

    Acer Aspire 7741G-6426 Model MS2309/MS2310; InviLink Nplify IEEE 802.11 b/g/n drivers needed; Windows 7 Professional 64-bit OS.
    I can't tell from Acer support page for my laptop which modem/hard-wire/wireless thingies I have:
    Atheros, Broadcom, or Intel
    Does anyone know how I can determine exactly which modem/hard-wire/wireless thingies I have?
    Windows will not tell; Acer support area will not tell me.
    Can I remove the back of the laptop and see something? If so, what do I look for, where do I look for it on the mobo?
    I spent two days shofar, and I get kicked off of wireless constantly, and there no hard-wire period.

    Not sure which OS you have running on that machine Roland, but with Win 7 - press the Windows key, type msinfo32 - press enter then expand Components/Network/Adapter then scroll down until you come to them, but what does Device Manager/Network adapters list for it ?

    In Device Manager/Network adapters right click on either and select Properties/Details then use the dropdown and select Hardware Ids

    This is my VEN & DEV for a wireless Realtek PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_8176&SUBSYS_818110EC&REV_01

    I would then enter 10EC into the Vendor box and 8176 into the Device box of http://www.pcidatabase.com/ press enter and then you pick out which is yours.

    This might get you started...

    Have you looked in System Information?

    Control Panel > Performance Information and Tools > Advanced Tools.

    Could be you just need to power cycle your router, or move to a wireless channel that has less traffic.
