Learn to use Google :-)

google for that code "VEN_1969&DEV_1083&SUBSYS_76801462"

You will find it is an Atheros device. These are supplied by Toshiba.

I'm assuming it's a wireless device due to the results that google supplies.

I'm certain you can find the correct driver in one of the google search results.

Good luck!
