Default Missing Drivers - 09-13-2009, 09:32 AM

I recently switched from Ubuntu to Windows XP Home. I soon discovered that I had no proper drivers, just a basic video driver giving me a poor display.

I downloaded the sound and video drivers and they are working nicely. The trouble is, I still have no network drivers. Windows can't even find the wi-fi hardware on the machine.

Can anyone please tell me what I need or maybe send me the drivers. Thanks'

Which model Mini do you have? The Dell support site should have all the drivers you need. As for the wireless, if the wireless had been switched off under Ubuntu, it will remain off until you use the Wireless Select Switch utility to turn it on again. You can download that from Dell too. I assume that Windows can find the Ethernet device for wired networking.

I am using a Dell Mini 10.

Can you tell me the name of the driver(s) I should be using. I can find no mention anywhere.

At the moment the computer can't find the Ethernet device for wired networking either.

Any advice would be appreciated'

Thanks
