WLan Driver 802.11n Rel. is a very useful set of driver extensions that can enable your PC to properly detect nearby routers and establish a reliable and fast wireless connection for both ethernet and internet communication. Since many network adapters can from time to time lose their ability to properly detect or connect with other network points due to corrupted, missing, or misconfigured drivers, this software bundle can provide a solution with its host of proprietary wireless local area network (WLAN) drivers.

Originally released to the public in 2006, this package was intended to provide additional networking support for aged Windows operating systems such as Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows 2003, and Windows NT4. If you are trying to enhance networking capabilities of your wireless hardware on newer versions of Windows, then most likely this driver package will not be suitable for you.

Staying current with WLAN technology

WLan Driver has a limitation in that it does not support the 802.11ac standard, also known as Wi-Fi 5. This standard, which operates on the 5GHz band, is compatible with other protocols supported by the driver bundle.

However, it is important to note that this driver does not enable a device to connect to a wireless network, it only provides the necessary configuration and protocol for a network adapter to connect. Therefore, it is necessary to have a built-in network adapter or Wi-Fi dongle to use this driver.

Additionally, the driver is paid software that is only intended for use with Broadcom network adapters, limiting its overall usefulness. Despite this, it is a convenient option for Broadcom users, as it is small, easy to install, and provides seamless connectivity to wireless networks.

The core purpose of the “WLan Driver 802.11n Rel.” software package is not to completely take over the networking driver found in the user’s PC, but to work alongside it and provide it increased compatibility with networking features, standards, and modes of operation.

This is most often needed with certain types of Broadcom network drivers that have compatibility with the 802.11 frameworks. This package, however, expands that support to all standards such as 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11a, and 802.11n, for both single-band and multi-band network adapters. According to the reports from many PC users online, this particular software package is particularly useful when paired with networking gear from Acer.

WLan Driver 802.11n Rel. can be downloaded for FREE and used on most older versions of Windows OS (from Windows 95 to Vista). The newer OS version (Windows 11 or Windows 10) requires updated drivers that are not present in this archive.

What is a WLAN Driver?

The driver allows your computer to connect to and communicate with wireless networks using the 802.11n wireless standard, which provides faster data transfer speeds and improved range compared to previous standards.
