Editors' Review

+

One of the biggest challenges you face after a System Restore is getting a computer back online. Using 3DP Net, you can quickly and easily get the drivers needed to get your computer back online. This utility can connect to the Internet using its incorporated drivers in order to install the drivers your system requires to independently get online.

Pros

Very useful tool: Anyone that has worked on computers long enough knows what a hassle it is to get the right drivers installed on a computer that's been taken offline. This utility will get you online and download the appropriate drivers, so you'll be up and running again in no time. This means that when fixing a computer you can just carry the utility on a thumb drive rather than having to download drivers, install them, and then hope you've found the right one.

Initial connectivity scan: The app does a good job of checking to see if you're already online before proceeding. That way you don't waste time downloading redundant software.

Cons

Very poor interface: This program looks like it was designed 20 years ago. It is presented in a very dated-looking package, and both the text and buttons are difficult to read and understand. Using the interface is largely a matter of trial and error, as it is very unclear upon first opening the program how exactly it is supposed to work.

Unclear instructions: Even the instructions within the program itself are unclear, making it difficult to use for someone who is new to it.

Bottom Line

If you're in need of a utility to help you get a computer back online, this will do the job. However, this is a strictly utilitarian app, with little thought put into presentation or ease of use.

"Solved a 3 Hour Problem"

May 06, 2014  |  By jmhines57

 |  Version: 3DP Net 14.04.1

Pros

Easy. Free. Effective. Can I say more?

Cons

Had no cons other than it took me 3 hours, multiple Google searches and searching through lists of downloads to find this hidden gem.

Summary

I installed Windows 7 onto a PC that my buddy had built and had no discs for any of the hardware for drivers. Tried for 3 hours to find 1 driver for a network adapter and couldn't get it done. Finally found this gem on the 5th hit of a Google search and all my trouble was over. Great product. Much love.

"Good to have tool."

February 10, 2012  |  By bjsdaddi

 |  Version: 3DP Net 12.02

Pros

Easy to use and it works as advertised.

Cons

Not a single one.

Summary

Great to have tool if you fix PCs. Replaced hard drive and O/S on an older PC with newer NIC installed. Got PC up and running but didn't have drivers for NIC to be able to get to Internet. After installing this software, the generic drivers worked and let me access the Internet so I could get the manufacturer's updated drivers.

"Amazing Tool to fix Internet issues!"

June 08, 2011  |  By E-Rock55

 |  Version: 3DP Net 11.05

Pros

Found the drivers.

Cons

Antivirus thought it would cause a threat to the system and I needed to disconnect my Internet in order for it to detect all the drivers.

Summary

This program is amazing definitely recommend if you need drivers to get back on the Internet. Ever since I've reinstalled XP on my HP Media Center PC I've lost the wireless card driver and I couldn't find it on Microsoft or HP websites for months. As soon as I figured out how to use this program I got wireless Internet back.
