Finding Correct D600 Internal Wireless Card Driver

  • I recently had to wipe out the HD on my Lattitude D600. I reinstalled from a Dell CD but when done I don't have wireless access. In fact, the machine doesn't seem to think I even have an internal wireless card. I guessed that I needed a driver (Wireless 1400) but that didn't work. How do I determine which driver is needed for my particular machine?
     
    Thanks.

  • All of your drivers are here and the basic one you need are the Chip Set, Video, Aduio, Wired & Wireless NIC's.  Install the Chip Set first as nothing else will work properly without it.
  • i recently had to wipe my latitude d600 laptop
    after wiping, it would not see my wireless network drivers, actually it wouldn't see any of the ethernet controller drivers
    i went to the download drivers area but it states the service is unavailable
    i would greatly appreciate if anyone knows where i can find the drivers
     
    thank you

  • Leslie this is the one you need to look at
  • Where can I find the file which was called "usbehci.sys" when I installed the Intel® Mobile chipset driver in the Microsoft® Windows XP operating system on my Dell Latitude™ 
  • Welcome to the Forum,

    Open any Windows Explorer page and click on "Search" and type in usbehci.sys then select My Computer.

    On my system, this brought up nine locations for this file, including C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS

    It has been on my system since I recieved it, 26KB from Microsoft version 5.1.2600.2180
