How to Update the 802.11n Driver?

It’s recommended to regularly update network drivers, regardless of the operating system. Specifically, the 802.11n driver boosts the speed of the wireless network connections and enhances the reliability. 

Now that you downloaded the necessary files from this page and located the file, open the folder that matches your operating system. The easiest way to update drivers on Windows is by double-clicking the Setup file inside the folder. You’ll be automatically forwarded to the driver installation (see screenshot). The process takes around 5 minutes to finish in the background, and you should restart the device afterward. 

On the other hand, Linux and Mac users will have to update drivers manually. For example, Mac users will need to double-click on the mpkg file they found in the Mac OS folder. From then on, the setup should automatically start. If not, right-click on the file, choose ‘Open with’, and press Installer if possible. 

Linux users will find the components for ‘making’ the driver via the terminal, and the process is described step-by-step in the ReadMe file inside the Linux folder.
