MIssing my network controller driver after re-installed windows 7

Jump to solution

Hi, I hope someone can find a solution to this problem, I have to re-installed windows 7 on my DELL Xps 17 due to a problem with Mcafee Software. Thinking that I would resolve one problem I end up with another one bigger than the first one, so know I am missing my network controller driver which I can not find any ware. That is the only drive that I need for my wireless to work, and I am going a bit mad here try to find a solution, Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Hi woodfox,

Network Controller is related to the Wireless card drivers. There are different XPS 17 computer models. If you can provide me the exact computer model I will able to provide the correct wireless card driver.

Also, please provide me the Device ID of the Network Controller; follow the instructions mentioned below to get the Device ID;

1)       In Device manager, right click Network Controller.

2)       Click Properties.

3)       Click Details Tab.

4)       Search for Device Instance ID.

5)       Provide the numbers after VEN and DEV.

For any clarifications feel free to contact me.

Hi Nikhil,

The computer model is XPS 17 L702x I have installed the Gigabit LAN "Realtek RTL8111E Gigabit Ethernet Controller Driver" from the Dell wesite. Now I notice that even though have resolved the issue that I had in the first place now it takes longer to identify a public network when before the computer didn’t have such a problem, any thoughts on that??.
