Hello

\015\012If your wired connection works then download the drivers from the Dell support site. If your wired connection doesn't work then download these drivers on another computer and write them to cd and use this cd to install your drivers.
Drivers are available on dell.com for your particular model. Just go to Dell.com and then SUPPORT DRIVERS & DOWNLOADS. The drivers are available for VISTA on your model. I checked to make sure.
