    You need to download the drivers.
    Goto the Drivers/Download section of your manufacture's, find your model, then download the wireless drivers. Good luck, lots of manufactures aren't making XP drivers available for their Vista models. You can still get them, it's just a PITA.

    Also, please use at least somewhat better punctuation. It makes your post easier to read and us more likely to help.

    Sorry about the punctuation must be my english brummie accent lol. I have tried but failed dramatically with the above information, i can find graffic and sound drivers but not one for wireless i know for sure its a E Systems 3090uk device i will attach a dxdiag for you so you have details of the laptop sorry as you can see im not much good with computers lol

    You can run any number of free system information programs like Everest, SIW, Sandra, etc.

    You can also try an online driver scanner like Driver Agent. I've had really good success with that site.
