    If you use the Dell service tag number at the Dell website, you should be able to find the specific drivers for your laptop including the network controller. If you can't find the service tag, it is probably shown in your BIOS. At least my old, old Dells have it in the BIOS.

    Unfortunitly I've been that route they list around 50 different ones thats why I posted the info above someone else had the same problem and posted here and someone here asked for that info and was able to tell them the exact driver to get
