I did a re-install of Windows Vista 64-bit. I followed the age old rule of installing drivers in the correct order, one by one they all installed correctly. I was able to get the LAN to work...so i was able to install all windows updates and all that fun stuff.
BUT, i went back to ensure i had all my drivers installed...and low and behold, my network controller is still missing. I have tried everything i can, dug everywhere, installed EVERY network driver Dell had listed for my model. I went through the effort of opening my laptop up and the wireless card is a Broadcom BCM94312HMG. I even went and looked all possible drivers up for that wireless card and none of them work.
Can someone lend me a hand to find a correct driver for this thing?!?!
