My husband re-installed Windows and now the internet is not working. He also installed the drivers disc that came with it but when we pull up the device manager it shows yellow ! by the following : Standard VGA graphics adapter, ethernet controller, network controller, and video controller. We have a 2008 Dell Inspiron 1525 and we went to the Dell drivers site, but we cannot figure out which things we need to download. Can someone please help us? Here is a link to the drivers and downloads for his computer. It is a Vista 32 bit. Thanks so much for any help!

You have to download the Ethernet controller to get the internet.

Thanks so much!! The ethernet controller worked but the "intel multi-device" driver didn't do anything that we can see. The Network & video controller still have the yellow ! next to it.

I put the driver disc back in the computer and just re-downloaded some of the drivers again to see if maybe we missed one and somehow it worked, so it is now connecting to the internet. Yay! Thank you so much for your help with this! :]
