Hello Dell world
Apologies as a first timer. got a small screen oldish lattitude x300 laptop on xp. used wifi on holiday in ireland using pay for time codesystem. overran time and the internet systemclosed. got back home and the wifi no longer works. not shown as device. no obvious drivers. assume the irish system cleaned them out. how do I tell what wifi system the laptop is using so I can download appropriate driver? any help would appreciated as I have cycling the dell support help without success.
Go HERE and use the enter your service tag option. In the drivers and download page scroll down to the network listing and the drivers for our particular system will show up
Many thanks guys for your very quick response. These forums make the world a much smaller and better place. This is a second hand laptop without a driver cd or manuals. I feel like asking loads of questions. Can I safely download just a few individual drivers (ie chipset one) or do I have to download all of them. Are the HTML versions needed? Your patience is requested.
You should only need to download drivers for which you wish to update. Use the download via web browser option as the download manager is very buggy and hardly works.
