This is a classic network card. Although Marvell AVASTAR Wireless-AC Network Controller is not the best network card in the world, its various practical functions allow you to have a stable network environment, For those who like to play online games, it is recommended to choose this network card, because it will not cause your data to be delayed during transmission. Marvell AVASTAR Wireless-AC Network Controller has a very strong anti-interference ability, even if there are several wireless devices with the same frequency nearby. The router or wireless network card will not have any impact on it, If you have many wireless routers around you, it is recommended that you use a network card that supports standard wireless protocols to establish a stable network connection with these routers. Marvell AVASTAR Wireless-AC Network Controller supports the latest standard wireless protocols, If you plan to use the computer for a long time, you can consider using this network card. Marvell AVASTAR Wireless-AC Network Controller has a very small heat generation and good stability. In addition, it also supports the sleep function. When the network is not busy, the chip automatically reduces the work frequency and save power, Nowadays, more and more people are shopping online. Marvell manufacturers also take this into consideration, so they add encryption function to Marvell AVASTAR Wireless-AC Network Controller, which can encrypt data before transmitting to external devices. However, this function is not enabled by default. The encryption function will be enabled only when you set it in the control interface of the driver, If your network card does not work normally, please check whether its driver is installed correctly, because this network card will not break easily.
Marvell AVASTAR Wireless-AC Network Controller driver installation information
The following is driver installation information, which is very useful to help you find or install drivers for Marvell AVASTAR Wireless-AC Network Controller.For example: Hardware ID information item, which contains the hardware manufacturer ID and hardware ID. These two ID values are unique and will not be duplicated with other hardware. According to these two ID values, the matching driver information can be accurately found. This method is more effective than any others, and 100% correct.There are many other information items that you can use to find the driver version information and the required driver files.

The name of the driver type in the system is: Net, and the drive type GUID is: {4d36e972-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318}.

Use the search function at the top to find the driver you need

Many hardware names are usually named after the chip model, and each chip model has its own dedicated driver, so as long as you know the chip model used by the hardware, you can find the right driver. For example, if your graphics card is named: "AMD Radeon RX 580", while actually the core chip model used is: "Radeon RX 580", then enter "Radeon RX 580" or "RX 580" to find the driver.

If you have a laptop or an all-in-one PC, you can also use the product name to search, and then go to the download page which has all the drivers for this machine (including: graphics card, network card, sound card, etc.). For example, if your laptop product name is: "Dell A6-9220e Inspiron Flagship", then type "Dell A6-9220e" to find all the drivers for this laptop.

Search steps:

1. Enter a keyword in the input box and click the "Search" button

2. In the query results, find the driver file you need, and click the download button

Driver Finder:

• Can't find the required driver files?
• Don't know how to find driver files?
• Unable to download driver files due to unstable network?
You can try using this driver file finder. The method of use is very simple. The program will automatically list all the driver files available for your current system. You can install drivers for devices that do not have drivers installed, and you can also upgrade drivers to the latest driver version for devices that have already installed drivers. Click here to download the driver finder.
