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.

"It works well"

August 28, 2015  |  By lefto1

 |  Version: 3DP Net 15.08

Pros

It goes online by itself and finds and installs both your wireless and your ethernet drivers. Pretty amazing.

Cons

Very strange on how to use. First it will show your ethernet, and if that's what you want running, you click there. It will get and install a driver. But to see another (such as wireless), you have to click the + button, then go back down and click that.

Summary

Works great, not user friendly.

"Incredibly useful... occasionally"

March 09, 2015

 |  Version: 3DP Net 15.01

Pros

Pretty good about finding and installing the correct drivers for you, which is handy when dealing with Atheros parts (for me anyways). It can cut down on time you would normal spend having to run all over the internet gathering the drivers you need.

Cons

Initial installation can be somewhat time consuming. For what ever reason, unpacking the necessary install files takes several minutes, which is like eternity for some of us.

User Interface isn't the most user friendly I've run across.

It has this problem getting the drivers installed. It loads the correct driver and says it is installed, but I will check the hardware and it will still say it's using the original driver. I've notice it becoming more and more common lately.

Summary

With the problem just mentioned, depending on my mood, I may or may not download this program. 3DP Chip is a great program and it was a nice attempt with 3DP Net, but that bug really cuts down on its usefulness.

Also, some anti-viruses might flag this as Malware or PUP, but it's not. When you install the program, it offers to install some toolbar or something (just like java). Just uncheck the boxes and you're set.

"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.
