I am facing the same issue as OP. I reinstalled the Operating System on my Dell Inspiron N5050 - Windows 7 SP1 64 bit.
Audio, Video Driver works fine. But I am not able to get the Wireless working
As you asked for Hardware IDs... here they are
Network Controller - VEN 14e4 DEV 4747
PCI Simple Communications Controller - VEN 8086 DEV 1c3a
I did download the Wireless Driver ... but after it gets extracted in C:\Dell\Driver... nothing happens...
Please HELP ME!
I had the exact same problem with my insperion n5050 with Windows 7. Went through many help sights with different recommendations on what to do and what drivers to try. All to no avail. (3 days it took me to resolve this problem)
What I finely did was this:
I bought a Cat 6 network Ethernet patch cable at the local electronics store ($3.99). I got a 7 foot just to be sure it was long enough.
Plugged it into my laptop network jack,( FYI the one that looks like a phone jack) Plugged in the other end to one of the empty ports of my wireless hub.
And tada! I had internet access. But I wanted wireless and I was sure the wireless card was working and it was a matter of the correct driver (which did not come on the driver disk that came with the computer)
Now that I had an internet connect I could go to the Dell sight. Do a detect my product instead of typing in the service tag.
once I did that I could see all components of my laptop including what wireless card I had.
Then I just did a search for drivers for that card for windows 7 I got a link clinked it and it brought me back to the dell sight with the correct driver for windows 7. I installed it and it worked. Yeaa! If you are unable to find the driver let me know I will post the name of it and you can search dell for that name. But it will only work if you have the same wireless card as my Insperion n5050. You might also post the name listed for your wireless card then I would know for sure if it is the same.
I was having the same problem after reinstall win-7 64 bits.
Here is some hints:
1. make sure the Fn key is working. Because after I re-installation my Fn key is not working
- it allows you to turn on/ off the wireless by pressing Fn + F2
- try Fn + F4/F5 to increase or decrease the lightness of your screen
- download Dell Inspiron N5050 System BIOS and Dell Touchpad Driver will solve this issue
2. download Dell Wireless 1501/1503/1701 Half Mini Card Driver
- i also tried other wireless drivers, but non of them worked, i guess the only different is this driver has 1503
3. restart computer, press Fn+F2 your wifi should come out.
You can find all driver in http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/EN/19/product-support/product/inspiron-15-intel-n5050/drivers
Its a Broadcom card but can't tell which one without the rest of the hardware ID.
