So you're saying that if there is no wireless adapter listed in device manager I have to go out and buy one of those USB wireless adapters?
Yes, you need to have the actual hardware.

They have internal and external (USB) Wireless adapters.

The driver you downloaded only works if it has a piece of hardware to interact with.
I just never knew that it was optional. And although I can read your latest link, I see that verbiage nowhere in your first link. But I guess it's a moot point - Dell has done it to me again.

So you don't see the tech specs tab if you scroll down?

The only thing I can think of is your screenshot is from XP which is obviously using an older version of IE.

No, nothing pertinent if I scroll down. And yes, this is an old XP Dell Latitude laptop which of course can use nothing newer than IE8.And if I look at the page in Firefox, it does show the tech specs. I had no idea that pages actually displayed differently in older versions of IE.
