Installing this device driver is a fairly straightforward process that can be done in minutes.

Place the Driver CD into your computer's CD drive.

Step 2

Open the "Start" menu and click on the "Control Panel."

Step 3

Click on the "Device Manager" and open the menu for "Network Adapters."

Step 4

Double click on your Realtek wireless card.

Step 5

Select the "Drivers" tab and press "Update Driver."

Step 6

Click on the option to locate the driver at a specific location.

Step 7

Click on the drive letter of your CD drive.

Reboot the computer when the installation completes.
