Before you begin

Driver updates for Windows 10, along with many devices, such as network adapters, monitors, printers, and video cards, are automatically downloaded and installed through Windows Update. You probably already have the most recent drivers, but if you'd like to manually update or reinstall a driver, here's how:

Update the device driver

The driver can either, (1) print out their hours-of-service from the other motor carrier, (2) if operating with compatible devices the ELD data can be transferred between the motor carriers with the driver’s approval, or (3) manually add the hours of service while operating for that motor carrier into the current ELD using the editing. While many drivers already have their own devices, if you want to get this device, except a small monthly cost. Expect to pay anywhere between $10-20 for a data plan.

Windows 10 or Windows 8.x

Many times, Windows Update does not provide the latest drivers for your wireless adapter. To get the most recent updates, you'll need to visit the website of your wireless adapter's manufacturer.

To find the manufacturer of your wireless adapter:

  1. Press Windows and Pause Break, or right-click Computer and select Properties.
  2. From the left-hand menu, select Device Manager.
  3. The 'Device Manager' window will open. Expand Network Adapters. If the wireless card is identified, its name will be shown. If it is not identified, you might have an unknown device (for example, '(?) Network Controller') listed.
  4. To identify the device, right-click the listing under 'Network adapters', select Properties, and then click the Details tab. Under 'Property', select Hardware Ids.

Almost all manufacturers will have support pages where you can download files for your drivers as needed. If the driver on your computer is older than the driver on the manufacturer's website, download the newer versions.
