No network controller really need help!

Can anyone help?  recently had to reinstall my operating system on Vostro 1520, reinstalled all drivers in recommended order but cant access any internet. 

In the Device Manager I have an exclamation at the side of the Network Controller device, there is no driver installed and I can't locate one anywhere!

Device path name is PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_4315

Can anyone help, its driving me insane spent days trying to solve

Hi ljwilliamson,

Welcome to the Dell Community Forum,

We’ll have to install the Network drivers for your computer, the error message is for the Network drivers error, please click on the link below to access the Dell Support website.

Type in the Service tag of your computer, select the Operating system type and under Network select the driver and install them and restart the computer and you should be able to download and install the driver successfully and should be able to go online,

Let us know if this helps.

Thanks and Regards,

It seems that all the Drivers has to be installed on the computer as previously you had mentioned about Re-Installing the Operating System.

Please follow the same instructions and install all the drivers available on the website, Here’s a link below for the drivers installation.

Please Install these drivers and restart the computer once done and everything else should work absolutely fine.
