Hi there.

After a motherboard replacement the laptop was installed with N71JQ motherboard which is compatible with N71JA model.

I've tried download wifi drivers for both N71JA & N71JQ however none of them works.
I've tried Azurewave NB290 Wireless LAN Driver and Utility from N71JQ asus page
https://www.asus.com/Laptops/N71Jq/HelpDesk_Download/
https://www.asus.com/Laptops/N71Ja/HelpDesk_Download/

I've also tried Intel(R) 1000 WiFi Wireless LAN Driver from both N71JA & N71JQ driver pages, however I am unable to install this one at all. Despite having windows 7, after trying to run the setup.exe I get "the version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running" but I am running windows 7 Home 64-bit and the driver is for the proper model and for windows 7 version, I am completely clueless why I cannot get wifi networking to work. I also tried to setup.exe as admin and then I get "setup.exe path cannot be found"

Does anyone have any ideas?

PS: Asus official drivers only support windows 7, so I am stuck with windows 7 OS.

Regards

Hi there. I've tried doing so, then I installed "Azurewave NB290 Wireless LAN Driver and Utility" from https://www.asus.com/Laptops/N71Jq/HelpDesk_Download/ however it still doesn't work.

I've also tried to install Intel(R) 1000 WiFi Wireless LAN Driver ( which I think is the one I need) but that one won't install at all, I get an error on setup.exe that the file version is not compatible, despite it running on exactly the requried OS. I already sent a message to Asus support regarding that one.

Some pictures of my Wifi card:

Any other driver I should try installing? Or perhaps buy a new wifi card and if yes which one should I get?

Regards
