Ok guys, I am upgrading a Dell Inspirion 1545 laptop, it was 32 bit os, duo core intel cpu, 2 gigs of ram. I reformatted the hdd and installed, Vista 64 bit Ultimate. Now I can't get an internet connection? The client said it saw wireless networks great before. Is this a 63 bit drivers issue? I need to get the Dell site to allow me to download drivers but I can't get a connection on the laptop. My desktop can but how do I put the downloads in a file for transfer? Or on a cd disk? Update: Network controller not configured properly {Code 1}. says no drivers?

Not sure I understand the issue here. Download the drivers on the desktop and transfer to the laptop via flash drive, cd, dvd, or whatever other means you have. None of the laptops network connections will work till the drivers are installed.
