Windows wireless driver for Amilo Li 2727

Laptop Amilo Li 2727It took me some time to figure out how to get the wireless device of my Amilo Li 2727 working with Windows 7. For the ones who stumble across the same problem I have describe how to solve it.

  1. Download the Windows XP Drivers For Amilo Li 2727 here (local mirror)
  2. Extract the contents of the compressed file
  3. Open ‘Control Panel’, click on ‘System’ and choose ‘Device Manager’
  4. Open the ‘Action’ menu item and click on ‘Add legacy hardware’
  5. Next -> Next -> Next and pick ‘Network Adapters’
  6. Choose ‘Have disk’ and Navigate into the ’04 WLAN’ directory
  7. Select ‘Atheros AR5007EG Wireless Network Adapter’
  8. Install the FSC Launchmanager from the ’05 FSC_LaunchManager’ directory by executing the setup.exe
  9. Reboot

Once you have rebooted you should have a working wireless device. To active the wireless device, you need to press the Fn+F1 button combination and choose WLAN. I can confirm this driver works on Windows 7.

Carl confirms this driver also works on Windows 8.

Good luck!

    Thank you very much!
    So many proposed solutions on the Internet, but this is the only one that woked for me. Basicly, the Launcher Manager was the problem. I losted it after I formated the hard drive.

    I tried to do this but got stuck here “and Navigate into the ’04 WLAN’ directory” – I can’t find the directory – can you please advise on the navigation path?

    Thanks so much.

    Is it normal that AVG has detected the HotKeyApp.exe as infected? I have installed the Launch Manager from here and Fujitsu, but both were said to be infected. Should I make an exception for this program?

    • Dirk-Jan says

      Hi Robert, I don’t have the Amilo laptop anymore, so I cannot confirm this. Perhaps someone else could check this.
