hello everyone. i need a bit of assistance please. today i formatted my laptop due to some problems and reinstalled vista. i reinstalled aol and connected via ethernet. i was having trouble setting up a wireless connection again so i phoned my isp. they told me that because of the format i had lost the drivers that run my wireless hardware and i would need to reinstall them. unfortunately for me i dont have the disc containing those drivers

id really appreciate it if someone would kindly help me out and direct me to a place where i could get these drivers from.

my laptop is:

samsung
np-r20y

im running windows vista ultimate 32 bit with an intel core 2 duo chip

any help in finding the drivers would be very much apppreciated. thanks in advance

According to Samsung's website there is no such beast as a "np-r20y".

There is an np-r20 model, for which some drivers are listed here:

According to Samsung: http://www.samsung.c...=Specifications, you have Atheros 802.11 b/g wireless adapter.
Surely enough, there is no way to find a driver on Samsung site, but this may help: http://download.cnet...2_4-162108.html
