Dell Dimension E521 Vista

Hey I and trying to use the Windows 7 Upgrade Adviser and it is telling me to install the latest driver for Broadcom 802.11g Network Adapter. I went to alot of sights and i can't find one that has this driver to install. So what can I so so I can download this so that I can continue.

The driver may be on the install disk, or barring that, available for download on Windows Catalog.

If that's what Microsoft has, the advisor may be wrong.

The advisor is wrong the driver for the Broadcom Ethernet is inbuilt into Windows 7.

The drivers you need are here:
