    I am concerned that you did not notice my post #24.

    I borrowed an external drive to do this with. Yes, the device manager shows the Blue tooth separate from the Realtek network adapter. I dunno if the Realtek driver is for both, i am assuming so. I don't know.
    OK

    Raven63 said:
    There 2 Microsoft Virtual Adapters like attached to the Realtek main wireless. These are greyed out with the Realtek right below it under "Network Adapters".
    As I said before, ignore them. They do not matter. Do not try to take any action regarding them.

    I have done this countless times in windows and it doesn't work.
    And I have asked you to describe what happens when you try so that some thought can be given to the cause of the problem.

    This is why I wanted to try safe mode with networking ... I will do this because its the only choice I have left.
    You might as well have decided to try waving a sprig of garlic over the computer to fix the fault. Doing so would have had just about as much logic behind it.

    I'm going to look into this and see if this can or will work. I forgot about this...its a good idea.

    Thank you so much.

    Have I missed something or are you really announcing this for the first time in post #22?

    I assume you are not running Windows 10 S mode.
    Switch out of S mode - TenForumsTutorials


    You mean that it is on a USB stick / an external disk connected by USB?
    You had not announced that before either unless I'm going blind.
    If you've got that far then the iPhone is no longer relevant. You can just copy the driver onto your computer.
    [I thought we were discussing separate WiFi & Bluetooth drivers but you just used the singular "the Realtek driver" above.]
    And then you can re-try installing it from there and report back with the error symptoms including screenshots to avoid ambiguity.


    If the driver refuses to install without any indication then it is merely the wrong driver then try SFC then, if necessary, try a Repair install. If neither of those work you are faced with a Clean install.
    SFC - TenForumsTutorials
    Repair Install - TenForumsTutorials {note that, despite its name, this is a repair procedure not an installation}
    Clean Install - TenForumsTutorials and, in preparation for one, consider Backup and Restore Device Drivers - TenForumsTutorials

    I had never noticed that FreeBooter tutorial about installing in Safe mode.
    I think you need to fix the fault first - to work through SFC & then possibly a Repair install to clear the fault that is blocking installations. Then you won't need Safe mode to do the job anyway.

    I done some indepth command line stuff that had SFC in it. There was 5 steps to it is all I remember and it cleaned up the image and the SFC scan come out clean after the repairs. I have the video in my email.

    A clean install right now is not an option. I'm using this laptop until I can get the other one up and going. I have dead lines
    I have to meet with my getting some work done and I can't do this until I get the desktop up and going.

    I just found the Realtek Bluetooth Driver in the control panel so it is seperate from the wireless NIC card.

    version 3. 769.769. 092613

    - - - Updated - - -

    I also found the Realtek Wireless Lan 802.11ac PCI-E NIC in the uninstall under Programs and Features for uninstalls.

    Its been awhile since I had to do any of this so bear with guys. I appreciate all the help and suggestions from each and everyone
    of you.

    Well, no wonder the Realtek driver wouldn't install because it's still installed even though it shows as a ghost driver.

    I'm looking at it in the Uninstall list in Programs and Features. Should I not uninstall this??

    In this video, i will help identify the device and find the correct drivers for it.

    Wow, what a great video. I had no idea. I would like to use this with a tethered connection from the iphone
    then I would be in business.

    Thank you FreeBooter, this is awesome.

    I will do this later tonight after I wake up. I'm so tired right now and I have to go to bed and get some sleep in order to continue
    this, okay. I'm delirious, so its time to quit.

    Brian,

    I'm not sure what you are saying.
    Can the OP transfer a file[within File explorer] across a USB cable from his iPhone without additional software?

    Denis
    Hi.

    Yes, you can take pictures (not sure about music) and dump them into a newly created folder on your desktop.
    Quick and dirty method.

    Hi,

    My experience with wifi drivers is that they can be very touchy and each driver is specific for each wifi hardware so you need to visit the asus website here to the download section and get the specific driver for your model of computer and install the driver. If it complains then i suggest to download the network ethernet and wifi drivers then remove/uninstall all the network drivers in the device manager. Then reboot the computer and windows should try and reinstall the missing drivers. Then open device manager and see what is missing.

    If one of them is the ethernet driver then install the downloaded driver then refresh the device manager to see if the ethernet driver was installed correctly. It then should download and reinstall the remaining drivers from MS.

    If wifi driver is still missing hen install the downloaded driver then refresh the device manager.

    Another idea is if you have ethernet connection then do a search for "MyASUS" and install MyASUS from MS store and run the diagnostic and it should identify or resolve the network issues.

    They are merely devices that have been connected in the past but are currently not connected. They are not an indication of corruption.
    Those entries are displayed when you tell Device manager to display hidden devices.

    Device manager is telling you that it cannot detect the existence of the RealTek WiFi adapter.
    Your problem is that the card is not there as far as Windows is concerned.
    I'd also like to see the Device manager, Other devices section if there is one ['Other devices' is a euphemism for device for which no driver has been found].
