Medion Wireless Lan Card Driver Zipl

Driver updates for Windows 10 and many devices (such as network adapters, monitors, printers, and video cards) are automatically downloaded and installed through Windows Update. Though it's likely you already have the most recent driver, if you're having trouble with a device, you can try fixing it by updating the driver.

Medion Wireless Lan Card Driver Zipl


In reference to the wireless problem, about always inadvertently waking up from standby after some period, just to let you know, we always recommend to install the Wireless driver provided by the manufacturer of the computer, since that driver was heavily customized by them to work with your specific platform.

There are no drivers available from Medion. As you can see for yourself on the page you linked, it clearly states this fact. On this same page you linked, there's also a link that points to their FAQ page about driver updates. In this FAQ, they go on to explain about how it also is possible to receive driver updates automatically from the component manufacturer. So, I am using the Intel DSA for that. In addition, this same FAQ also explains that it is possible to manually download latest drivers from the component manufacturer's official website. So, I visited to the Intel Download Center page, and I grabbed the latest version of the WiFi driver from there, as the DSA could not find this one automatically for me. That is, both the DSA and Windows Update found only the older version of this driver. Similarly, on my old laptop, that I mentioned before, and that came with an Intel WiFi AC3165 card inside, the DSA was unable to find the lastest Intel Bluetooth driver. That is, in spite of the fact that this latest Intel Bluetooth driver, that I also ended up grabbing from your Download Center, appears to be working perfectly fine, at least for me.

External hard drives, thumb drives, USB drives, and Flash memory cards are examples of storage devices that you can connect to your Mac using Thunderbolt, USB, or USB-C cables, or connect wirelessly using Bluetooth wireless technology.

I have some problems with my laptop. I sent it 3 weeks ago in warranty service due to graphics card problems. Now I have it back from the workshop and the motherboard has been replaced, model GM7ZG7P. But now I have other problems. I get random "blue screen of death" with errors like video_dxgkrnl_fatal_error or driver_power_state_failure and I can not change the fan speed in the media control center and my performance profiles are all messed up. I have tried to reinstall Windows as well as different versions of Control Center.

3DP Net has been around for several years and is a dedicated network adapter driver installer that supports a wide array of ethernet and Wifi adapters for offline installation. Although several websites list it just as an ethernet driver installer, 3DP Net does actually detect and install wireless drivers as well.

Download the Ethernet or wireless driver, if you are going to download more than one, they can be downloaded in turn. The resulting driver file will likely be a setup executable or a zip containing a setup file or a batch script. Copy/extract the file(s) to the target computer and execute to install the driver. Both our missing drivers were found which would have been a big help to getting online.

When I used Windows 10 I used a wireless adapter instead of the default WiFi card inside my PC as it was slow and had started to cause major issues. When I get onto Ubuntu I cannot connect to any of the networks in my home because the driver for my WiFi adapter only appears to be available for Windows.

[Newsletter Index][Previous Page] [Next Page][Feature Index]editor@os2voice.orgMedion Multimedia Entertainment Notebook Titanium M1 By Mark Dodel February 2003 Shortly before Warpstock 2002 I was looking at my local newspaper and saw an adfor a laptop computer in my local Aldi food store circular. They were advertisinga "Medion MD5275" laptop for $1499USD. This was with a 15" display,P4 2.2GHz processor, 512 DDR SDRAM (Max 1024MB, but as I later found out it hasalready installed two 256MB DIMMs) and a DVD-CDRW drive. Other than what I saw inthe advertisement, I didn't have anything else to go on, so I knew it was a gambleto purchase a computer without being sure if OS/2 (or in my case eComStation) hadsupport for all the basic features - video, PCMCIA, and sound. I felt reasonablycertain video was covered by the Scitech SNAP display driver, I had no idea on PCMCIA,and all I knew about sound was that it was "AC'97" and "Sound BlasterCompatible" which is pretty meaningless. I had promised my daughter my now3 year old ToshibaSatellite 2545XCDT, and she was getting more vocal about it, so I was forcedto do something. After several days of changing my mind back and forth on it, Ifinally got up the courage to plunk down $1499 + $90 sales tax in cash (Aldis doesn'taccept checks or credit cards, just cash or debit cards and my debit card didn'tallow for a purchase that large), and took home my newest addition. Aldis doesn'tdisplay their computers, so I had to buy it pretty much sight unseen, entirely basedon the limited specs on the advertisement and on the box.Once I got it home I booted the installed WindowsXP Home partition and triedto figure out what I had actually bought. Being in windoze reminded me why I can'tstand it and why I'm happy to have my OS/2. The sound appeared to be an "ALCAC97" chipset. PCMCIA was a Texas Instruments chipset. Video was billed asa Radeon Mobility M6 chipset. Networking was a Realtek RTL8139 chipset. So I wasstarting to get a good feeling about this.Arghhh,eCS 1.0 wouldn't install on it, hanging on the first reboot. I spent a day tryingdifferent things, before giving up. Luckily eCS CD#2 (which is actually MCP1) installedfine. I was able to run convert.exe (found on the eCSdownload site) to make it an eCS system and apply all the updates. An earlyeCS 1.1P beta installed, but that was without networking or multimedia.Medion is a German company with very limiteddistribution in the US. I believe the machine is built by someone else for them.When I was searching for some information on this a while ago I found that the PremioKaypro A1000 laptop is identical (down to the same LEDs on the display and programmablespecial buttons at the top). Also while searching for information on this laptop,I found an almost identical looking model at a Dutch site, the MedionMD9783, though it has a smaller screen (14.1"), and only 256MB RAM anda 20GB drive, and I see no CPU listed.My Medion MD5275 came with XP Home (with the dreaded "Recovery CD")and OEM versions of Microsoft Works (which includes Word 2002), PowerDVD 4.0 andNero 5 installed on it, wasting about half (19GB) of the IBM Travelstar 40GB drive.The rest was a 5GB FAT32 recovery partition and 14GB backup partition (NTFS5 I think,as was the XP boot partition) which I blew away and created a logical partitionto hold a FAT volume, couple of 1.2GB eCS HPFS bootable volumes and a separate 7GBHPFS apps volume. And still lots of free space. On my list of things to do is toeither blow away the XP partition or shrink it considerably with DFSee.With eCS finally installed I was able to do some investigating using PCI.exeversion 0.47vk. It showed this system has an Intel Brookdale ICH2 chipset whichseems to control most of the system functions (IDE, AGP, PCI, AC'97 Audio Controller)as well as the two 82801BA/BAM USB Controllers.DisplayVideo is an ATI Radeon Mobility M6 LY, 4X AGP bus with 32Meg DDR RAM. InitiallyI could only get this working with GenGRADD and VGA. I reported the problem withSNAP in the Scitech OS/2 support news group and tried several suggestions whichdidn't help. At the suggestion of Scitech support, I sent the notebook to them totry to figure out why SNAP kept hanging the system on boot. They didn't have a probleminstalling OS/2 Warp 4 with Fixpak16 on it. They did find a problem with the CRTout feature at the 1024x768 native resolution, which they fixed in the latest SNAP2.1 beta. On return to me, I still had the same problem with 19 out of every 20or so boots hanging at some point before the end of processing the CONFIG.SYS. SinceScitech could run Warp4, FP16 without a problem, I began to suspect that somethingat the MCP1 code level which predates FP16. Turned out once I installed Fixpak3for eCS, the Scitech'sSNAP driver began to work fine and that is what I use now. SNAP is so much fasterthen the GenGRADD, so I am glad I was able to finally rectify the problem.This laptop has a TFT XGA+ 15" LCD but the native resolution is only 1024x768:-( I can set it to a resolution of as high as 2048x1152, but then it just goesinto a pan and scan mode that I really can't stand.The SNAP driver's zoom feature works very nice though, magnifying the screento a set resolution by depressing the selected key combination. The laptop has aTV out port, though I have no idea exactly what that is about. It appears that theScitech SNAP driver supports TV out on the ATI chipsets, but I don't have a cableto try it. From what I read in the manual, it supports up to 800x600 on a televisionscreen.AudioAccording to windows this laptop has an "Avance AC97 Audio". PCI.exe showedthe audio as "82801BA/BAM AC'97 Audio Controller" which turned out tobe a dead end. After doing some searching on the internet for "AC'97"and "OS/2", I found that AC'97 is a generic name, and one had to knowthe actual sound chipset to find out if there was support. There was a VIA AC'97driver on hobbes and then the Uniaud driver released by Innotek(Available on IBM'sSoftware Choice or the eComStation download site for eCS users), but neither ofthese worked. I finally contacted Medion support and asked them what it was. Theysent me a very informative PDF file which listed most of the actual real hardwarein the MD5275. I was finally able to identify the real audio chipset as the RealtekALC201. With that information I was able to search the internet for a Realtek ALC201OS/2 driver. It appears that Realtek has frequently updated drivers for their soundchipsets.System sounds and Wave files work with the latest OS/2Warp driver on Realtek's site, but the sound is speeded up, like playing a 33album at 78 speed if you remember the old vinyl record days. For some reason thesound only works in Warpvision if I set it to resample to 44Khz, but again I getsound but its all speeded up. Z!, an OS/2 MP3 player,also plays all songs at the speeded up rate. I have an email into Realtek support,but they haven't responded to my earlier posts when I could get no sound at all,so who knows.I can play Midi files with the Java app MultiShow,but these sound speeded up as well. Prior to that I tried installing TiMidity2.10.4, but that just caused an error whenever I tried to play a Midi file.I had thought I might try playing with VoiceType since the machine should beplenty fast enough to make that useful, but there is no builtin microphone. I hadthought this was standard on laptops nowadays. So this is at the bottom of my thingsto play with list for now.Considering it is billed as a "Multimedia Entertainment Notebook" Ifound the sound quality from the small, side mounted speakers a bit on the tinnyside, even under windoze. If I had a working OS/2 driver I'd be satisfied with itfor what it is, but I wouldn't rate this any where close to high fidelity sound.Hopefully Realtek will continue to update the existing OS/2 driver and fix my soundproblem.Networking/CommunicationsThere is a Realtek RT8139 10/100 NIC builtin which works with the RTL8139 OS/2 driver.The NIC only works with the default IRQ 10, which is the same IRQ used by the soundchipset. I can change the IRQ in PROTOCOL.INI, but I always get an error on boot.I'm not even using this NIC now (I'm using an IBM PCMCIA Wireless card instead),but I still have to have it defined in MPTS. The system only boots if the RTL8139driver is loaded and there is no way to turn off the NIC in the BIOS. Be sureto get the driver from Chuck McKinnis'NicPak website, as it is considerably newer then the one on the Realtek site.In fact there is pretty much nothing one can configure in the BIOS on this laptopother then enable the parallel, IrDA and serial ports. There is no way to controlIRQs or for that matter just about anything in the BIOS. Under windows there isconsiderable number of power related options one can set, but as far as I know,nothing exists under OS/2 for this. It must be related to the ACPI(Advanced Configuration and Power Interface) thing that I frequently see DanielaEngert talking about. According to the hardware pdf that Medion Support sent me,the MD5275 has ACPI 1.0b and uses a Wistron (formerly part of Acer) BIOS versionF29. Hmmm, the label says it was made in the Phillipines, and Wistron has a plantthere. Perhaps they are the real manufacturer.The builtin modem is a winmodem that is unrecognized by OS/2. I didn't spendmuch time on this either. According to PCI.exe, this is an Ambient TechnologiesCreatix V.90 HaM Modem. Pretty much a waste of silicon. I have a BestData 56K PCMCIAmodem that I have used quite successfully in the past with my Toshiba, but I onlyuse it when I'm traveling, which I do very infrequently now. I will have to testthis before I make my next trip though.PCMCIAThis works fine with the latest Cardbus driver for the Thinkpad (available on IBM'sSoftware Choice and on the eComStation site. I used the IBM2SS14.SYS socket servicesdriver which worked with this for PCMCIA support. Daniela Engert has a driveron hobbes for the Texas Instruments cardbus controllers as well. According toPCI.exe it is a TI chipset with a device ID of AC55h, which in Daniela's TI CardbusDriver Doc equates to a PCI1250 controller). I have only used an IBM High Rate wirelessPCMCIA card and an IBM external PCMCIA hard drive. Both work fine.Drives, ports and inputThis machine is a 3 spindle model (harddrive, floppy and also a QSI brand ATAPIDVD/CDRW drive). As noted above it has a 40GB, IBM Travelstar IDE drive, which atleast for now seems plenty big enough for my needs (though I still remember whenI thought 30MB was a huge amount of space).The QSI DVD/CDRW combination drive is a 8X8X24 CD writer. I had to search forthis bit of information on the Web, as neither the box, the manual nor the PDF Medionsupport sent me listed this. RSJ 4.05 works well with the CDRW drive, though I hadproblems with RSJ not attaching if a DVD was in the drive. I finally got aroundthat problem (which made it impossible to read DVD's with RSJ installed), by usingDANIATAPI.FLT.Speaking of DVD and Daniela, I can now use Warpvision(CLI and GUI) to play DVD movies, just no sound. I had problems playing encryptedDVD files until I updated my system to the latest DANIS506.ADDand DANIATAPI.FLT drivers. Now with all the DVDs I have tried, play is extremelysmooth, with CPU usage running between 40-70%. There is only an occasional lag,but I haven't seen any pixilation or display breakup as I had noted previously.Note that in the desktop capture below, I had paused Warpvision,so the CPU monitor in XCenter only shows 6.2%. In addition I am using the WarpOverlaydriver which enables hardware display overlay support when using the Scitechdisplay driver (SDD or SNAP). A great big thank you to the guys at KievElephant who made this possible and to Daniela Engert whose work makes our continueduse of OS/2 and eComStation so much more pleasant.Besides having a PS/2, VGA , serial, and parallel ports, this laptop also hasIrDA and firewire (PCI.exe shows it as Texas Instruments TSB43AB21 1394a-2000 OHCIPHY/link-layer Controller) ports. I haven't had a need to try any of these, andthere is currently no Firewire driver for OS/2 now anyway. It has 2 USB 1.1 UCHIports which work with the USB drivers available on the eCS site. I don't do muchwith USB though. Just a CF Flash reader, which doesn't seem to work well under anyOS/2-eCS system I try it on. The other is my Epson Photo 820 printer, which is recognizedand prints fine when I attach it.The keyboard is the typically cramped notebook layout, without a separate keypad.Overall it has a fairly nice feel to it. Besides the usual keys, there is a [Fn]function key which transforms some of the keys to modify hardware states, like turningspeakers on/off, blanking the display, putting the system in suspend mode, enablingthe TV out port, Numlock and scroll lock. Unfortunately it is also used for the[Home] and [End] keys which I use frequently,so that takes some getting used to. There are 5 "Easy Launch Keys" abovethe [F1]-[F12] function keys. These are like the old chicletkeys, but don't seem to function at all under eCS. Under Windows they run web, mail,PowerDVD, Nero (for burning CDs), and Microsoft Works (I always get a chuckle outof that obvious oxymoron). I downloaded the W95Key program from Hobbes, which includesa key scanning utility, and none of these five keys produces an entry.It has a Synaptics PS/2 port touchpad for a mouse, and besides the standard twomouse buttons, there is a 4way scroll button. So far I haven't been able to getthat to work with the latest OS/2 mouse driver or with Amouse.I have to admit I haven't spent much time on it though.PowerThe laptop is powered by a 12 cell Li-ion (Lithium ion) battery (5880mA) that seemsto hold a charge for a little over 3 hours or so. It also seems to recharge morequickly, about two hours to recharge from a fully depleted battery. Hopefully theLi-ion battery will not suffer from the progressively shorter useful charge or memory effect 1problem that plagues the NiCad battery in my Toshiba notebook.As previously noted, there is nothing related to power management in the systemBIOS configuration. eCS' APM doesn't do much. With APM enabled I can do a poweredshutdown, but suspend just causes the system to hang. Also you can turn off thedisplay screen by holding [Fn] and pressing[F4].Screen power comes back on by touching any key or the touchpad. Also the screenpowers off when you close the cover.ConclusionAll that being said, this brand is difficult to obtain in the US and I'm told itsnot widely distributed in Germany either, so I'm not sure what good this reportis to you. It does appear the exact same system may be available under a differentlabel. Anyway I thought I'd write this review just to let folks know that eCS willrun on something other than a Thinkpad and how I overcame some problems gettingeCS installed on it. I'm happy to be writing my article on this same machine. :-)BTW Medion support was decidedly unhelpful once I made it known I was using somethingother then windowsXP. All my questions were to try to clarify what was actuallyunder the covers of this box. They did provide timely responses to my questionsbut stated "We will support the Windows XP Home Operating System (whichcame pre-loaded on this product. Other OS's are not supported by us." .All-in-all I'd give the machine an overall grade of B-, which is a shame becauseit is a solidly built, and feature rich, especially for the price. This is mostlybecause of the BIOS lack of configurability, lack of anything but windoze supportfrom Medion, as well as the 15" screen only having a native resolution of 1024x768.I'm hoping newer Realtek sound drivers fix the sound problem, as Realtek has beenregularly updating the driver (last one as of this writing was 10/09/2002). TheBIOS/ACPI problem looks like one which will eventually have to be tackled if eCS-OS/2has a chance to continue to be installed on new machines. The machine itself ispretty nice, and runs eCS well once I figured out some of my initial install problems.Note 1: From"Memory effect: The property of nickel-cadmium (NiCad) batteries that causesthem to lose their capacity for full recharging if they are discharged repeatedlythe same
