Everything in computer was from what is was manufactured and bought. I have a del inspirion e1505 and need to install the right wireless chip drivers. It runs windows xp. Please directme to exact link because I don't know which one to install. Here is the link: http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19
If it requires me to check what kind of wireless chip, where can i check it?
Before the computer used to connect wirelessly but now it can't because i need the right drivers to be installed.
The network adapters installed are: network adapter installed under device manager:
1394 net adapter
Broadcom 440x 10/100 Integrated Controller
On the laptop there is an icon that says wifi beside power button
I used to go to starbucks to use wireless on this computer. I rebooted the computer and lost the wireless features because i didn't know how to get it back.
WOuld i need a wireless usb adpater? but the drivers are not installed. I used a windows xp cd to restore the computer. The computer detects that the wireless driver is not installed though
Driver not installed picture:
I was able to reinstall all the other drivers except the wifi card.
