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,

Try installing Quickset application from Application category in Drivers and downloads, restart PC.

Please press F2 key on the keyboard to enable BT and Wireless, after which try to install the drivers. If you still have trouble finding the drivers, request you to provide the Hardware ID (Steps provided by  DELL-Saharsh K) that can help me to get the correct drivers for your system.

The radio is always turned on. I tried turning it off and on again when I get to that step. No go. I will have the machine in my office tomorrow and get the ID for you.

Hi sequoya22,

You need to install Intel 10/100 Network Drivers. You may download the drivers from the link http://dell.to/143TPR0. Download the driver and follow the onscreen instructions to install it. Also, please remove the service tag from public view for security reasons.

Hope this helps. Please reply if you have any questions.
