Help! I had to rebuild my HDD and I can't find a wireless driver that works in the downloads area of the Toshiba Tech Support. Or maybe, there is something special I need to do. Another problem is I have no idea which wireless adapter I have. Any suggestions??

..rebuild my HDD
Best to restore the hard disk to its original out-of-the-box contents using Toshiba recovery media.
Win 7 Ultimate 64b
Then upgrade from Home Premium to Ultimate using Anytime Upgrade. It takes only a few minutes. And all the drivers are already in place.

Thanks Jerry, appreciate the response; however, I no longer have the original media and would rather not go through the process of ordering, waiting for and getting someone to receive the delivery of a replacement. There must be a way of narrowing the 5 wifi devices to the one actually in my machine - then i can go after a driver that works. Unfortunately, Belarc only identifies devices that are fully installed.

I have no idea which wireless adapter I have.
Open Device Manager (devmgmt.msc) and expand Network adapters. Do you see an Atheros, Broadcom, Intel, or Realtek wireless device?
