OK, I feel like a complete moron here, so bear with me. This seems like something I should be able to figure out on my own, yet here I am, totally clueless.

I had a hard drive failure two days ago, and took my laptop to a local repair shop. They replaced the HD and I picked up my laptop today. Now I'm getting everything back the way I had it, but the problem is that the driver for my wireless card is missing. And I can't find the disc with the driver files on it, plus I can't figure out how to find out what model card I have OR how to go about finding the drivers online.

This is driving me batty. Yeah, I can still get online, but I'm limited by my ethernet cord, and I really want my wireless back.

Does anyone have any ideas?

In case you need to know, I have a Gateway T1413h, and I'm running Vista.

Thanks for any help!
