Hi,

I'm using the latest version of WinPE 11-10-8 Sergei Strelec 2023.04.18 (English).

Unfortunately, I can't connect to the WiFi.

At the "Network" menu, I opened the "PE NETWORK MANAGER" software => "Properties" => "WiFi". The software shows only "Realtek PCIe GbE Family Controller"... so, I have not any other kind of "WiFi" controller option or alternative.
I tried every single software installed at WinPE Strelec, and couldn't connect to the WiFi nor the LAN, nor the cable connection, nothing.
I tried on both versions, Win 10 and Win 11.

But I'm not an expert, so probably the mistake here is on my side.
Please, I'll appreciate any help that can make the WiFi work with WinPE Strelect at an Acer Aspire A515-45G laptop.

Thank you in advance!

That simply means that the PE disc does not contain the drivers for your hardware. Try another PE disc, such as Anhdv Boot.

Yeah, that was my first thought.
But it's hard to believe that this is a WinPE Strelec limitation. I mean, it's hard to believe that WinPE Strelect WiFi only works with few built-in drivers.
It's sounds that this is an user limitation (we users don't know how to make WinPE Strelec work). I mean, I'm almost sure there is a way to install the proper driver, or to make the WiFi work in all devices.
The Strelec forum is too long to be read. And it's closed (it's not registering new users). But there I read several posts mentioning that the WinPE Strelect WiFi should work at any device.
