I recently did a fresh install of windows 7 on a friends computer. a dell inspiron N5040. However, when I reinstalled, the network drivers didn't install along with everything else. No biggie usually.
I tried doing the dell auto-find drivers tool, however after going through the installation for the drivers provided and restarting the computer, I still couldn't use ethernet or wireless to connect to a network.
Ethernet controller hardware ID
Network controller hardware ID
PCI Simple communications device hardware ID
If someone could point me in the right direction, it would mean a lot to me.
This first, then reboot.
Hey, thanks for your help! Unfortunately, the fix was a lot simpler... There was a wifi switch and I didn't even think to look for one... Sigh....
Thank you so much for your help though!
