WiFi driver issue

Jump to solution

i have re-installed windows xp in my laptop Dell Vostro 1400. it came with Vista but i have formatted and installed registered xp in it. when i installed WiFi driver in it (downloaded form Dell site), the driver works fine but because of this driver my machine gets stuck right after startup (when its shows the desktop). i was thinking that maybe its windows defect but now i came to know that when i uninstall the driver, it dont stuck.. Can anyone tell me about the driver.. which can i install??..

i have tried a lot of drivers from Dell site. specifically for this model.

Can anyone give a specific link for the right driver?  i will be very thankful Smiley Happy

You need to tell us whether you have the Dell wireless adapter or the Intel wireless adapter physically present in your 1400.

All drivers for your system can be found at:

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?os=WW1&osl=EN&catid=-1&impid=-1&serviceta...=

Note that you will never get the wireless drivers to install if you did not install drivers in the correct order.  The Notebooks System Software and Chipset drivers MUST be installed first.

All you should need to do is reinstall the drivers in the correct order, starting with the Dell Notebook (or Desktop) System Software, then Chipset, then the remaining drivers (video, audio, network).
