Intel Pro Wireless 3945abg Network Adapter Driver Download Install Update
This isn't a question, it's a solution that worked for me so I thought I would post it pre-emptively! Having just forced it to upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10, I noticed straight away that the wireless was not working maybe that's why I didn't ever see the Microsoft upgrade option. Nothing much seemed to happen, but on checking Device Manager, the system indicated that the driver is installed but "the device failed to start".
I disabled the device, then enabled it - still nothing Anyway it rebooted, connected to my network and is running perfectly. Not bad for an old Vista machine. Maybe the driver was installed all along and all I needed to do was reboot the machine in the first place. I don't know, drivers aren't really my thing! I thought I'd post this just in case there are other people with similar antique machines lying around.
If it stops someone from getting as annoyed as me, then I've done a good thing. I upgraded it from Windows 7 to Windows 10, and now the wireless does not work. I've tried the solution listed above, but it hasn't made a difference. I realise that this adapter is now unsupported, but I wondered if you had any advice as to how to fix this issue, maybe a replacement driver or something?
Intel does not provide drivers for this configuration, and we are not aware of possible workarounds. I'd like to let you know that workaround with powershell script works for windows 10 as decribed here:.
It is good to know that this is working for you. Just keep in mind that Intel does not have support for this adapter and OS combination, so we cannot guarantee that this will work in every scenario.
Please contact the Computer Manufacturer Support to obtain this information. Just install all proposed drivers, reboot the system. No wifi after upgrading from Win 7 Ultimate to Win 10 and Device Manager displayed the following message in the Device Properties dialog box, on the General tab, in the Device Status text box: If you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other devices on this system. The following actions rectified the problem and might be worth a try for other people.
Reboot and Windows will automatically reinstall the Intel driver under the revised configuration and you should have wifi. I probably found the solution for the Wireless disconnect after waking up from sleep mode with the Intel ABG. I simply disabled the "Computer can disable the device to save energy" option.
The option can be found in the Network Adapter configuration at configure - Energy saving options. As I have a German OS, the english terms might be different, but you will get the respective options by its meaning: I had the same problem.
I didn't except it but this solution worked: I know this is an older thread but thought I would put it out there for people to see. I spent hours and hours puzzling over this workaround only to wake up the next day feeling fresh with inspiration.
This content has been marked as final. Can you tell me which of the devices that works on windows 10 is compatible with my laptop? Win 10 Pro, 32bit. Go to Device Manager 2.
Thank you very much Collname! Have a nice day! Go to original post. This is a computer translation of the original content. It is provided for general information only and should not be relied upon as complete or accurate.
