  • Hi Gunwant27,

    You may provide the hardware ID so that I can look for a compatible driver (if available). Please go to Device Manager -> expand Other Devices, right click on Network Controller -> choose Properties -> Details -> from the drop-down under properties, choose Hardware ID; will take it further.

           

    Thanks & Regards,

  • Hi,

    I am also facing same problem in my wifi..my service tag is <Admin Note: removed per privacy policy~RK> and after buying system I removed ubuntu and intalled Windows 7 Ultimate

    Operating system and found that wifi drivers not available.After looking at above solution I dowloaded and installed

    Step 1)Intel Chipset Driver

    Step 2) "Dell Wi-Fi + BT Driver "

    Step 3)Realtek Ethernet Controller Driver

    after this Blutooth started working and ethernet connection as well but my main problem of wi-fi connectivity is still same.

    Could you please let me know what to do in my case.Is there any other software that I need to install??

  • Hi,
    Even I am facing same issue on my Dell laptop(Inspiron 3421).
    I formated my system as it was having Ubuntu OS thus I was not interested and installed
    Windows 7 Ultimate professional.After this many things in my system stopped working specially
    internet connectivity and bluetooth.
    After going through forum I tried below steps but it couldn't resolve my issue  fully.
    Step-1 Downloaded and installed "Intel Chipset Driver"
    Step-2 Downloaded and installed "Dell Wi-Fi + BT Driver "
    Step-3 Downloaded and installed "Realtek Ethernet Controller Driver"

    After this bluetooth and Ethernet started working but my wifi still not working.

    Could you please let me know what else I need to install to make its
    wifi working?

  • I solve it.

    I searched on the dell.com site after HardwareID's code "PCI\VEN\14E4&DEV_4365&SUBSYS_0016102" and i found this:

    with driver
    that worked.

  • Hi Subhapgi,

    Turn on the wireless radio by pressing the key combination of 'Fn+F2' keys. Check if the WiFi LED in front lights up or not. If it does not lights up it may be possible that the Quickset Application is not installed. Click on the link http://dell.to/1dkPJUH to download the application and follow the onscreen instructions to install it.

    If the issue still persists, please try to update the drivers from the link http://dell.to/1aGSbnt.

    Hope this helps. Please reply if you have any questions.

    Thanks & Regards
