    Hi guys ..

    Just bought over a notebook from a local auction site. Everything is ok except there isn't any driver for the wireless lan card. the driver cd doesn't contain any information, neither can i find the website but its a intel centrino notebook.

    The brand is DClip .. any idea how I can track down the driver please?

    Thats the problem .. I can't find the website as well.

    And no specific model number, just the brand name is DClip. Must be a Taiwan OEM machine. :)

    Anyway, isn't Intel Centrino a standard feature? I mean .. if the notebook is Intel Centrino, isn't it has to comply by having certain model of mainboard, processor and wireless by Intel?

    slightly off topic but all laptops that have intel wireless cards sucked lol i had to go get the intel drivers or else they didnt work. the ones that come with toshibas and acers are the ones i have tested, they wouldnt even connect to networks, then i changed the drivers worked instantly!

    xp wireless config tool should do the trick, make sure you didn't turn the service off

    I just install the drivers without the PRO/Set utility and use SP2's wireless config system. Didn't really like PRO/Set all that much. :)
