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.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Hello, I need help with network controller. ID of hardware:
PLEASE HELP :X my wifi doesnt work. I have dell inspiron 17r 3721 with windows 8 64bit. Problem started when I have uninstalled dw dwlan card utility because I had problem with it, but after installing drivers that are avaible on dell website it still doesnt work... System doesnt "see" WIFI CARD, I have no idea what I can do... Please help me.
This is a 1704 Dell Wifi +BT Driver
Win 8 no 64bit drivers available in support dell for DW 1704. DW 1703 is only available: ftp.dell.com/.../Network_Driver_2CRMP_WN_WLAN--10.0.0.2_A02.EXE
Suggest you to try the above link for Win 8 as well. If it doesnt click then run in Compatibility mode (Win 7).
Also you can check in your HDD. Under C:\Dell\Drivers\3WJ6F or Network or wireless, you can get the setup file and install. Provided re-installation of OS was not done.
Please help me :( Brand new Inspiron 3721, installed every driver but the wifi driver fails to install. Windows 8 Pro 64 bit. I'm now using a external wifi adapter and that's ridiculous for a new laptop! Barnii2 how did you solve your problem? Please
ok after trying several drivers one solved the problem (I think it was the 1704 for windows 7 link given by veerdeej above). It is so disappointing that I spent the whole evening with trial and error instead of doing work on my new dell laptop. Why are the drivers for my support tag incompatible and I had to find the answer in a forum? I'm not buying dell again, so disappointed
