Solved!

Network Controller - Yellow exclamation mark

HP Recommended
HP Omni 120-1115in
Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit)

My HP all-in-one PC crashed and has now been repaired and Windows 7 has been reinstaled, but it is not connecting to wireless internet. It connects to the internet through a LAN cable though. In the device manager window, there is a yellow exclamation mark under Network Controller. Which driver do I need to install to fix this? Or is there something else that needs to be done?

Hi:

 

You need this driver for the model wifi adapter your PC has...

 

This package contains the driver installation package for the Ralink wireless LAN Controllers in the supported  models running a supported operating system.

Thank you for your reply! Will this work for Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller as well?

You're very welcome.

 

The driver I posted will only install the Network Controller - Yellow exclamation mark device, which is the wifi adapter that needs a driver.

 

If you are seeing a Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller, then the driver for that is installed and the ethernet should be working if you connect via an ethernet cable.
