Updated drivers for wireless card

I have been trying to update my drivers for my wireless card on my laptop, but cannot access the driver download website. This site has been down for two days now. Any idea what is going on?

RE: Updated drivers for wireless card

Hi RIVERRAT2012,

The downloads site seem fine to me, can you provide the download link ? Also the model or the driver you are trying to download would be helpful.

RE: Updated drivers for wireless card

The link I was using was dell.com.support. The problem I have is that I upgraded my router from a Netgear WNDR2000v3 to a Netgear WNDR3700v4 and my two Windows 8.1 computers work fine but my two Windows 7 computers cannot connect. So I figured I might need new drivers. My Vostro 13 has an Intel Pro/Wireless 5100 802.11 b/g/n and worked fine under the old router. It will not connect to the new router.

I appreciate all the help. I was finally able to get to the Dell Support website to get my updates. Thanks
