    Default Wireless drivers

    i have installed vista ultimate

    I need to find the wireless drivers for my packard bell easy note but when I look on there website there is only driver installer. {i, assuming this connects to the internet to find them

    The make is Packard bell Easynote TR87
    The model number is MS2266

    Im writing this on a old laptop using on screen keyboard and jts pissing me off

    I have found out what the ethernet controller is {broadcom netlink TM gigabit ethernet if i find the driver for this i can plug the laptop straight into the rounter and use the driver installer ive found. I assume i cant use this as i need a internet connection to use it.

    Did you try plugging a ethernet line directly to it and letting it do it's thing?

    Sounds dumb but it worked for me once on a xp laptop where i couldn't find the wireless drivers on the manufacturers website so i just decided to plug it in and make sure everything was working and a couple minuets later it automatically found my wireless drivers.
