    how do you run a driver on a computer with no internet connection. After transfering it from a flash drive do you not need a connection to activate the drive?

    No, you do not always need an Internet connection to install drivers. The downloaded installation software may include all of the needed files for the installation without going to an outside source for more files. Some installers may offer an option to check on line to see if there is a newer driver available.
