MIssing my network controller driver after re-installed windows 7

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 Shamseer1234,

To assist you further with the drivers, please post the operating system installed in the computer and share the screen shot of the Hardware Ids.

Open “Device manager” window, select the “Other device”, right click “Network Controller” listed under Other devices, click “Properties”, select “Details” tab, click the dropdown menu under “Property” and select “Hardware Ids”, please take a screen shot and post it in the reply, so that I can search for the right drivers.

Awaiting your response!

Hi Shamseer1234,

Please provide your system model and Operating system.

You can enter your service tag at support.dell.com and go to the section drivers and downloads, Under the section 'Network' -> Download the driver for Centrino Advanced-N 6205 Wifi Card. That should do the trick.

Mark my answer as resolved if your issue is resolved

Hi hroohani,

Download the Dell driver: ftp.dell.com/.../Network_Driver_540F3_WN_15.03.1000.1637_A03.EXE

This is the driver for your Intel Centrino 6205 Wireless card.

Please do not post the service tag in a Public forum. Provide it in a private conversation only to a Dell employee.

@hroohani: You are welcome, glad that sorted out all the ? marks on Device manager page.

Suggest you to install the Quickset App, Other Apps under Application, Touchpad Drivers, USB 3.0 Drivers, Card Reader drivers to utilize the full potential of your laptop from the support site, after entering the service tag in the support.dell.com --> Drivers and downloads.

Hi Nilesh,

Based on your model number there is a Touch version only. And based on your vendor ID details, I can see that its Atheros adapter. But your system would have been shipped with either Dell Wireless 1703 802.11b/g/n or Dell Wireless 1704 802.11b/g/n as per support site. Did you make any hardware or software changes?

Hi VeejDeej,

I did not make any hardware changes. The laptop was shipped with Win 8 and I downgraded it to WIn 7 OS.

These are the Laptop details :-

SKU    3421545001B1

Evalue Code   W560327IN9

Brand Name  Dell Inspiron

Series Name   New Inspiron 14

from the Specs , it looks like it has a Dell Wireless .. please help me with the link to the correct driver

Thanks

-Nilesh
