Paid WLAN driver for your device

WLan Driver 802.11n Rel. is a paid productivity tool that supports most WLAN (wireless local area network) hardware. With this set of drivers, you can get the right drivers to get your WLAN dongle or adapter up and running.

Like other drivers, such as Bluetooth Driver, the WLan Driver 802.11n Rel. gives your device the proper protocols to recognize and connect with various types of WLAN, the most popular of which are Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) networks. This lets your device connect to the internet and with other devices in the same network.

Driver sets with wide coverage

WLan Driver 802.11n Rel. saves you time and resources with its wide compatibility for Broadcom devices. Instead of having to search the specific network adapter for your device, you just have to make sure that you have a Broadcom one installed and you can use this driver bundle with no worries. Needless to say, other brands of network adapters are not supported by this driver bundle.

For a set of multiple drivers for different Broadcom adapters, this bundle has a surprisingly small file size–it’s only 9.5MB upon download. Together with this storage-saving feature, installing it is also easy. You just have to run the setup executable and wait for it to complete. If you’re looking to change hardware later, you can install the drivers in this package. This ensures that once you switch to a Broadcom adapter, you can just plug and play your new network adapter.

Aside from the wide range of Broadcom adapters supported, the bundle also offers connectivity and support for other WLAN protocols in addition to the commonly used 802.11n. You can also use other protocols such as 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11a, and even multi-band network adapters. These different protocols offer different transfer speeds and bandwidth, not to mention that devices in the same network must run on the same WLAN protocol.

Keeping up with the latest WLAN

One of the limitations with WLan Driver 802.11n Rel. is that it does not support 802.11ac, which is also known as Wi-Fi 5. This WLAN standard works on the 5GHz band and has backward compatibility with the other supported protocols of the driver bundle. The more powerful standard is great for streaming high-quality media or transferring large amounts of data in short amounts of time.

Also, as a driver, it is important to note that it doesn’t give your device the ability to connect to WLAN. It only provides the proper configuration and protocol to your network adapter to allow it to connect to wireless networks. Make sure you have a built-in network adapter or a Wi-Fi dongle–hardware requirements to connect to any wireless network. Without the hardware, the driver bundle definitely won’t work.

For Broadcom users

Aside from the fact that the WLan Driver 802.11n Rel. is a paid software, it is only intended for use for Broadcom network adapters. This greatly limits the usability of this driver bundle. However, if you’re a Broadcom user in search of a WLAN driver, this is your one-stop shop for setting up your hardware. It is small, installs easily, and lets you enjoy your wireless network connection without much hassle.
