Re: more wifi connection problems

For the information on your laptop and the drivers you can go to there website. Search for your computer manual and the specs for you wifi should be in there. Then go to drivers and downloads and copy you drivers. Do not use the dell manager. down load them individually. you will need the chipset and the network, audio and video. Load the chipset first then the rest. After you find your manual you will now what drivers to pick.

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

Re: more wifi connection problems

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.

Re: more wifi connection problems

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.
