So, on clean install, I am trying to install all my drivers. Obviously one of the network cards is covered. Now, I go to device manager, look through, to find the latest driver. Here is the driver I am working at this moment:

Intel 82801FBM LPC Interface Controller - 2641.

On one driver website which lists the device exactly as listed, I see this message:

The Intel? Chipset Software Installation Utility installs the Windows* INF files. The INF files inform the operating system how to properly configure the chipset for specific functionality, such as AGP, USB, Core PCI, and ISAPNP services.

**Note**
This is the last version of the Intel? Chipset Software Installation Utility that supports the Intel? 810/815/820/830/852/855 Chipset families, as well as the Intel? 840/860 Chipsets.


But I already know my chipset is in the Intel 900 series... which in itself took 3 days of Googling 'cause the setup program does not identify itself as anything other then "1.5", and my device manager and System Information identifies everything as, "Mobile Intel 915GM/GMS,910GML Express Chipset Family," which actually does not exist, as for the variations on the name, more then one exists, so I could not even identify the chipset until I found Intel's auto-identification utility, and I don't remember what it was but it was 900-something not 800-something... the Device ID for this particular device is 8086:2641, but I guarantee there will be many, many more...
