Jump to solution

Hi Dell comunity im kinda new in Dell brand, so few days ago my stepfather gave me a inspiron 6400 so the WiFi wasnt working so i reinstalled the OS Windows Xp the one who cames with the laptop. so the problem still there, i download the drivers from dell and still the problem so my wireless card isnt working so i went to control panel, then to system and Hardware's my surprise was some yellow icons. Here is some picture

i have looked into the problem further and i notice that my PCI Bus 3 function 1 2 and 3 in the device manager are not recognized (they have the ! by them) which coinciedently is where the network card is located?

Did you install ALL of the required drivers and did you install them in this order?

Try installing the drivers in the correct order first. If this works (and it may) then that's great. If not, you'll have to reinstall the OS and then the drivers. Good Luck!

4.Network Interface Card (NIC) - Enhances the network controller for Internet or network access. This is located under the Network Category on the Drivers and Downloads page.  its this one? Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN MiniCard

and in

7.Wireless Network Card - Enables and enhances the wireless network controller. This is located under the Network Category on the Drivers and Downloads page. wich one its?

You should first install the Broadcom driver (2nd in the list). This controls your etherenet (wired) network controller. Then install the wireless driver. As for which one, I have no idea which wireless card is installed on your machine. It could be the4th driver in the list, the 5th driver, or the last (Intel) driver. If you can't identify which wireless card you have, you'll have to try each of them in turn. If it's the wrong one, you may get a message that there is no hardware installed for that driver or the wireless adapter simply won't work. Try each of them until you get the right one.

Go here. Put in your sevice tag which is located on the bottom of your computer. It will tell what came with the computer when it was ordered. Paste the list to your post if you cant tell which one it is.
