I have a Sony Laptop (VGN-NW 150J). In Device Manager under UNKNOWN DEVICES it has "network conntroller". I looked up the numbers for the unknown device identifier 7.0 program and I have never used this version of unknown device identifier before. The numbers are ven-8086n and Dev-4232. I don''t know what to do from there. Could someone please tell me how to find what driver to download to get the wireless network card to work?
Thanks,

Download and install the Network Controller Driver from this page should do the trick:

Or if its for the wireless on this laptop download the driver and install from this page:

Just a note those drivers were for 64Bit version of Vista, if you copy is 32bit then scroll to the bottom of this page and download and install the wireless driver:
