Need Wireless (Wi-fi) service for Inspiron 17R 5737 laptop
I need wireless service on my laptop. I own a Dell 17R Inspiron 5737. Internet service where I rent was disconnected. The radio wave icon in the task pane is absent. So I checked online to troubleshoot and figure out why I am not getting a wi-fi signal even from the library that I am working in. One response came back that I need to either update the network drivers registered with my computer or straight download a driver from Microsoft. Fine.
The Operating System of the computer I am using here at the library is Windows XP. The Dell page allows me to detect drivers [or here, dell.to/1SLFRJJ], but that does me no good since that page is not operating on my Dell; I get that page from the library's XP. I was hoping that I could download the driver from this [dell.to/1SLFRJJ] page onto my USB and then from this USB download it onto my laptop that has no wi-fi service. I was also hoping that this would not involve any loss of files or any kind of disruptions.
So, if you can help, direct, and guide, I would be eternally grateful.
