My friend just reinstalled windows and it wont let him connect to the internet because his computer says it doesn't have any network adapters anymore. He bought his computer used so he doesn't have the drivers disk. If u could help me with finding the drivers he needs it would help a lot.

His computer is an alienware area-51 laptop.

If you can find the service tag, the Dell website should give the network driver.

How would I be able to find the service tag?

The service tag is a white sticker on the computer itself. Sometimes called a "tear tag" Get the number from it and go to http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs , follow directions.

Well. We couldn't find the serial. But I managed to find the model number. He has an alienware area-51m 766 laptop. All we need is a network driver for that system. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
