Network Controller not working

Jump to solution

I have a Dell Inspiron 1420.  It had a bad NVIDIA card so I replaced the motherboard with a VOSTRO 1400. I moved my Hard drive, memory and wireless card to the new motherboard.  I have all the drivers in and working except the Network Controller, therfore no internet.  Where can I get the correct driver for this?

Vinard,

 

I would try installing the drivers in the correct order and see if everything starts working. How to Download and Install Drivers in the Correct Order

 

You could try running the full diagnostics and see if there are any error messages. How to Run the Dell™ Diagnostics Utility

Since I have moved my Hard drive Memory and wireless card from the Inspiron 1420 to the VOSTRO 1400, should I use the 1420 drivers, the 1400 driver or do I need to mis them?  Since my trouble is the Network Controller should I use the 1400 network drivers and the rest the 1420 drivers?
