Dell Inspiron 14z 5423 Network Controller Driver Missing (Wifi Not Working)

Jump to solution

My system was giving me some problems so I recently reformatted my computer with the Manufacturer CD that comes with the purchase of a Dell computer. I installed all of the other drivers from Dell's site fine, but the Network Driver Card continually fails to install no matter what. Ethernet works fine, but I am unable to turn on my wifi. I noticed that someone had a similar issue in the past here:

But the conversation was continued in a private message. Could anyone help please?

Dear Jaugustin92,

Please try all of the instructions from the following post:

en.community.dell.com/.../19469867

Also, i have found a universal driver for your wi-fi card. Look up these links (I summed up the three probable wlan cards your pc may have and these are their drivers from intel. It would be easier if you go to device manager and see what model is the card. To do this type in the search box of your Windows Device Manager and open it and look for the section, called "Network Adapters"):

Ahhh, downloading Intel Proset Driver (Middle Link) seems to have fixed it. You have my thanks!
