    Wifi Driver Not Working


    For some unknown reasons, whenever I tried to install the Wi-fi driver on my laptop, after proceeding setup file agreements nothing happens.

    My laptop is compaq 610 and i've tried installing latest drivers downloaded from softpedia.

    In the device manager, i got the exclaimation mark for wi-fi driver. In properties window, this is showing that device can not start.

    Please help me out to fix this issue so that I can use Wi-fi on my laptop. Thanks.

    Tried the latest drivers still in vain. The setup run for some seconds and nothing happens. Even tried the compatibility troubleshooter, still no luck

    Are the Intel Pro wireless services running ok?

    Also look at the details and events tabs in the properties. If they are empty, uninstall and reinstall and then look at the events tab to see if there were any installation errors.

    Which Intel Pro Wireless services? I have already said that Intel Pro Wi-fi drivers not working!

    In the details tab, nothing special found. Also no events tab there to look upon.

    Nobody is able to solve my issue??!?!!!

    I don't have your driver or product, but on some of the Intel products there is a service that runs. In your Administrative tools go to services and see if there are any Intel services that are disabled or running with errors.

    As for the other, the events tabs appears in the picture you posted. Events show up when you first install something. So if you uninstall and then re-install the driver you should see some events which may be helpful.
