Various issues related to the need for wireless drivers and upgrading them are discussed in the following points.




  • Need for wireless drivers

  • Need for upgrading wireless drivers

  • Issues faced during upgrading the drivers



Need for wireless drivers



Wireless drivers are needed in the Gateway® EC14D Series so that the wireless network can connect to any type of wireless network. The wireless LAN can be established with the proper device drivers and the Wi-Fi drivers need to be present to have proper interoperability between 802.11 devices. This would result in the implementation of point-to-point links on the entire network structure. This helps overcome the situation of physically connecting the computers so the cost of implementation of a network becomes much lesser. Hence wireless drivers in Gateway® EC14D Series notebooks help establish a connection between the different networking environments.



Need for upgrading wireless drivers



There is a need for upgrading the drivers that are associated with the system because it would result in a communication error with other systems. If the drivers are not upgraded over time then this could lead to network connectivity problems. Gateway® provides online support for the required drivers and updates from which we may download the driver that is required for the system.



Issues faced during upgrading the drivers


Care must be taken while upgrading the wireless drivers such that the hardware does not clash with the software drivers that are downloaded. The correct model of the laptop must be chosen from the list of drivers. Wrong drivers would result in a conflict in the working of the wireless driver.
