Inspiron 15 (3521) Wireless driver

I can't find it anywhere & when I searched at "Drivers & Downloads" page, and tried to download the wireless driver there although it was for 64-bit not 32-bit as my laptop but it didn't even continue downloading & told me the file isn't found. Like really, you didn't update the drivers at your own site for even new laptops? Then why don't you (company) just add a drivers CD included with the laptop's contents?

Well I just need help & fix this problem so I can use my laptop's wireless.

Re: Inspiron 15 (3521) Wireless driver

Hi Danny-dell,

Thank you for providing the update. I sincerely apologize for the technical troubles you have experienced with your Dell computer

As per your description, Inspiron 15 (3521) was shipped with 2 wireless cards. Since you did not mention the Wireless card model, I have provided wireless card drivers (Windows7 32/64 bit) from the manufacture website for both the cards.

Checks the wireless cards shipped with the computer and install the drivers accordingly.

Do follow the steps below to check which network card you have in the machine:

  1. Right click computer icon on the desktop.
  2. Select Manage.
  3. Select Device Manager from the right pane of the window that opens.
  4. Expand Network adapters from right pane.
  5. This will list the network card installed in the machine.

Awaiting your response!

Thanks & Regards

Thanks for your care, Rajesh R.

Actually, I already looked at the Device Manager before and the only thing that appears with a question mark is "Network Controller" and under Network Adapters everything about network (including Bluetooth) but wireless.

I tried those two drivers you listed the links for but still didn't work.

Dear Rajesh,

I have the same problem.

Win 7 64 bit and instead of wireless connection there is written: 'The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)'

Re: Inspiron 15 (3521) Wireless driver

it seems for me

Network_Driver_2W6N0_WN_WLAN--9.2.0.50_A02.EXE   was the solution

it was nice to find and try almost all of these drivers:

www.driveridentifier.com/.../download.php

shame on dell "support"

I will never ever never suggest 2 buy dell laptop in the future ...

Re: Inspiron 15 (3521) Wireless driver

Finding which link marked "Download" actually gets you the driver from that site is a fun little game of Russian Roulette.

Try this instead:

http://ftp.dell.com/Pages/Drivers/inspiron-15-3521.html

Based on the Hardware ID in device manager, the Dell Wireless 1703 should be the one for me. But installing it (WIn 7Pro x64) gets me a blue screen error every time.

Still looking for a fix.
