My granddaughters laptop has no wireless in device manager, only wan miniports and bluetooth. The specs you have above is accurate except for no 802.1 adapter. I put in a usb wireless adapter and got online that way, but I would really like to have an internal adapter to use.

I upgraded windows (72 items) and when it was finished and rebooted, I did a rescan in device manager and the wireless adapter showed up and connected. I'm sooo happy.
