    A friend of mine is having trouble reinstalling his laptop because he lost
    the cds with all the drivers!
    He managed to find most of the drivers on the Dell web site and install
    almost all the devices listed with the interrogation point in the Device
    Manager. But he can't find out what the last one is; there's a "network
    controller"; he already installed the NIC (Broadcom Ethernet 10/100/1000).
    He thought maybe it was a wireless device (like the Intel miniPCI I saw in
    the components list on the web) but when he installed the driver for that,
    there still was the unknown network controller listed in the Device manager.
    Somebody knows what this device could be? Thanks.

    On the bottom of my Dell there is a 'Service Tag'. When you fill that in on
    the Dell website, they can tell you what drivers are needed for that laptop.

    It seems to be a TrueMobile driver but I tried several and they all worked,
    so I don't know which one to keep! Any idea? Thx.

    You tried several and they all worked??---Try this:-
    Create some new folders somewhere you can remember--put one driver in each
    file,might be good to name the files aswell,driver 1 etc
    Uninstall the problem device in device manager--reboot--device found--need
    driver-choose location-driver located at----yada1/yada2 etc

    I can't use this method because the drivers are exe files.

    I was having problems installing the network controller on my dell latitude d600.
    I was able to resolve by doing the following:
    1. update bios to a16
    2. In the bios under wireless configuration make sure to
    set the minipci device to wireless
    set the minipci status to enabled
    set the wireless control to fn+f2/application
    set wireless to on
    3. Goto under latitude d600/drivers/downloads/network
    and install the intel driver for the (R) pro/wireless 2100 lan minipci adaptor
    Good luck !!!!!!!!!!!
