Dear all

Due to a virus problem, I have had to install windows (xp) on my laptop but in device manager under other devices the following item has yellow question marks:-

network controller

As network controller driver is missing I can't connect to the internet to download drivers directly from internet, though I do have access to the internet via another pc.

Can somebody please help me get my laptop back on the internet?

download EVEREST Home Edition. expand the + next to devices in the left pane. click windows devices. Scroll down in the upper right pane and expand the + next to the question mark labeled "other devices". click on Network Controller. It should be highlighted blue. look in the lower right pane about 4 lines from the top there will be a line labeled "PCI Device". Go to and enter the service tag number from the bottom of your laptop and hit go. go to the list of drivers and expand the arrow labeled "Network". scroll down the list and find the driver for the device listed in EVEREST, download the driver, and viola. all fixed!!
Thank you
Ok's the answers to all your questions. This will solve all your worries and you'll be back online once again.

1) First download and install the Intel Pro 100 Network Adapter software App (see link below)

2) Second download and install the INF for Intel Network Adapters. (see link below)

Once you reboot your system, you should be good to go and online once again.
Good luck.

Thank you
network controller for the WiFi card...for dell insp 8600...Intel (R) Pro/Wireless 2100 LAN miniPCI Adapter...

This took care of my problem
Thank you
In my case I had a (Drivers and Utilities) CD that I also had to install after the OS. Open it after downloading . Automatically it detects System Model "Latitude 610" and OS "Windows XP" then it lists all devices by drivers i.e. Audio Drivers; you require Network Drivers..
Select the US based "Dell_Wireless(US) WLAN Network Adaptor Card Rev:A04.
You would need to extract the compressed file.
Once again you have an automatic response from an InstallShield Wizard which installs and immediately notifies you of avail. networks (and wireless at that)
Thank you

You can download the Dell Wireless driver for Inspiron 1545 from the below link. This works perfectly fine and there are no issues during installation:
what about the driver for Dell Inspiron 4150
did you ever get the driver for the 4150? if so... I could really use it

Thank you
I think I can find that for you just gimme some time to search the driver and give you a link
These things happened at time when u format. If u're lucky, all ur drivers will be installed. What u have to do is that, use a friend computer to download the driver and then install it in urs. Go to google and type "free download for dell D600 network driver". The most common place to get it is dell website- support center.
Hope that solves ur problem.
Good luck..
Help - I have the same problem as Shannon had. My Model is Satelite M45 S331 System Unit and PSM40U 01R 001. I keep trying to download driver detective on my laptop that works so I can save on USB and then run on the Toshiba laptop (remote) that has no drivers installed.

I must be doing wrong thing. I can't find correct drivers to install and Driver Detective must be wrong thing. I can't find anything similiar to my model numbers...

hi pmarie. I used thedriver detective but still the problem persists. i'm even having a problem with the bluetooth and the wireless all three are non functional at the moment. I really need the laptop to be fully operational as it does play an important role in my everyday life.
pmarie > Pmarie - Apr 4, 2009 at 10:25 AM
I finally had to call for support and was on the phone with someone from India for about 1.5 hours to fix everything for a cost of about $75. The service I used was IYogi
Justy > Pmarie - Sep 2, 2009 at 10:18 AM
just contact your computer provider example dell, mac etc... with your service tag number and express tag # on the bottom of each laptop.

They will tell you which driver is correct for you to download and they will also provide you with that driver for free.
Thank you
I want Network Controller driver for dell laptop d610

I now have the same problem you seem to have had finding drivers for the D610.
Dell's system does not recognise the Service Tag I have printed under the comp: 60SMX1J and I have not been able to get online to get further.
Any chance you can point me in the right direction? I actually need all 6 drivers listed in Device Manager's "Other Devices" if you can help?

Hi John.

Please help me!

I am having the exact same issue as you w/ my Dell Latitude D610. All the Other Devices have yellow question marks next to them and I can not get on-line to fix the issue.

What can I do???

Thanks - Manda
