detroitwillfall,

Did you recently install/reinstall/upgrade the operating system? If yes, did you install the Dell System Software (if applicable) and the chipset drivers first? If not, the rest of the drivers will fail to install. How to Download and Install Drivers in the Correct Order

What is a Dell Service Tag and how do I locate it?

I'm having this same problem, wifi driver will NOT install.  I've installed all chipset drivers and the wifi drivers just fail repeatedly.  I've rebooted multiple times after each install, flashed the bios, even let the dell system support software detect what drivers I need but the wireless drivers continue to fail.  Really weird
