Windows 7: What do I have...a wireless device??? intel centrino wireless - n

What do I have...a wireless device??? intel centrino wireless - n

I have a dell insprion 17r n7110. I just put a new system on the LT and win 7 untima x64. In my device manager it says I have an intel centrino wireless- n wi max 6150, but it does not have a driver for it. I really do not know what it is...I think it is my wireless card. Any how I went to dell to find the driver for it and I cannot find a driver for those numbers/model. If it is a wireless card what should it be for my model and which driver do I need to make what ever I have in there work. Slowly I am putting all the drivers in place. Is there a program that will tell me what devices are installed or better yet I tried to get the data from dell and it is very elusive.
Can some kind soul point me in the right direction

Its a kind of wireless network thing. Sometimes its a little troublesome to install also, so persevere. If I'm not mistaken its a intel "in-house" wifi. Don't think I've ever had use of or for it myself. (But I do keep its driver(s) updated ) You can find it here :https://downloadcenter.intel.com/default.aspx

or here : https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Sea...&FamilyId=1783

Here's what intel says about it : http://www.intel.com/support/wireles.../CS-028904.htm
