Hey Guys,

I just picked up a used Dell Inspiron 1150 laptop, once I got home I reinstalled XP, the install seemed to work but I canít log onto the net due to ďno wired or wireless network cardsĒ, Iím assuming I just need to download the drivers but I canít get online to do that and Dell makes you use their download manager that seems to make it so I canít download it on another computer to transfer over. Any suggestions?

Thanks
-Justin

Thanks for the quick reply but as I said when you download from Dellís site it automatically installs the drivers as well. I need to download them on one computer then install them on the laptop.

You should be given the option when you click on the download button to either open or save the file.
I would rename each file for what it is.
Chipset
Network
Audio
Video
Then save them in one folder on your desktop.
Then burn those all to a cd or something in case you need them later. Better yet download them all renaming them as I said for what they are. Then you will have them all on one disk for the future.

I guess i had already downloaded thier download manager so it would auto download and install, once i removed the manager it let me save.

Thanks for the advise, we're up and running !!!
