I'll keep this short!

I did a clean install of vista home premium on my Compal JFT00 over the weekend and loaded up all the drivers on the supplier's CD for this model.

Since the vista install the notebook cannot seem to find a wireless network adaptor. There's nothing listed for wireless under adaptors on the device manager however there is suddenly an 'unknown device' and when rebooting the machine is finding new hardware...an ethernet adaptor. Putting in the supplier's CD or the vista CD to find the software for this stray ethernet adaptor doesn't work and there's a 'generic marvell yukon' ethernet adaptor listed in the device manager which says it's configured correctly.

Could this unknown adaptor possibly be the wireless adaptor? If so, I'm a bit confused why installing the drivers from the CD isn't working. I've tried downloading and installing the latest Intel and Atheros WAN drivers from the compal site here. it's not worked.

Does anyone have any idea?

Download the latest drivers. Install the chipset, then the LAN, then the WLAN. Then any other needed drivers. See if that helps.
