Network Drivers for Dell Inspiron N7110

This question is not answered

Hallo,

trying to update my system and to install the newest drivers. Worked well so far. But I am at my wit`s end finding the correct network drivers via the Dell support homepage. There are 11(???) network drivers listed for my system. Need help finding the correct drivers (or must I install all of them).

The support center listed following network components:

Intel Centrino Wireless N1030

Realtek Family Controller

Thanks for your help.

    You can grab the latest Centrino WLAN driver from above...

     

     

     

      

  • And the other listed drivers and applications (for example DW1502, DW1701 and so on). Should I install all of them???

    You don't have the Dell Wireless WLAN cards 1502 or 1701, you have the Intel WLAN so no you shouldn't install these...

      

  • Okay ... got it. Last question: what`s with the Intel Application Proset / Wireless BT software. Needed or not.

    Thanks

    If you do in fact have the Intel Centrino Wireless N1030 WLAN, you need the latest Intel Bluetooth driver linked above...

  • Very interesting discussion here - even I'm a little too late...

    I just came across the same problem. Bought last weekend an Inspiron N7110, installed everything from scratch on my own and now trying to figure out which is the proper Network driver for it.

    I tryed first with the "Drivers and Utilities"-DVD which is included. Its showing 6 different options

    (I included the filename in brackets myself):

    - Intel 1000 802.11 b/g/n Rev: A00 (R292741.exe)

    - Intel 1030 802.11 b/g/n, BT3.0 + HS - BT driver Rev: A00 (R292738.exe)

    - Intel 1030 802.11 b/g/n, BT3.0 +HS - WLAN driver (Intel Centrion Wirless-N 1030 Rev: A00) (R292741.exe)

    - Intel 6230 802.11 a/b/g/n, BT3.0 + HS - BT driver Rev: A00 (R292738.exe)

    - Intel 6230 802.11 a/b/g/n, BT3.0 + HS - WLAN driver (Intel Centrion Advanced-N 6230) Rev: A00 (R292741.exe)

    - Realtek RTL8111EL Rev: A01(R294380.exe)

    Because I didn't know which one to use now, I went to the DELL site with my Service Tag Number.

    There are still 11 different Network drivers, even the names are a bit different now than mentioned above:

    - Intel Driver, 10/21/2011, V14.2.0.10, A03 (R311883.exe, 55MB)

    - Intel Application, 10/20/2011, V1.0.81.2058 4, A02 (R311884.exe, 40MB)

    - Dell-Driver, 12/25/2011, V14.3.0.6, A06 (Network_Intel_W764_A06_Setup-686FH_ZPE.exe, 55MB)

    - Dell-Application, 12/5/2011, V1.0.81.2060 1, A03 (0PDK4_A03_ZPE.exe, 36MB)

    - Dell-Driver, 8/18/2011, V5.100.82.34, A01 (R309029.exe, 90MB)

    - Dell-Driver, 3/21/2011, V5.100.82.15, A00 (R292735.exe, 79MB)

    - Dell-Driver, 3/21,2011, V9.1.0.328, A00 (R292734.exe, 16MB)

    - Dell-Driver, 3/16/2011, V6.4.0.620, A00 (R292697.exe, 58MB)

    - Dell-Driver, 3/16/2011, V9.2.0.115, A00 (R292699.exe, 147MB)

    - Intel-Driver, 3/16/2011, tic:TRWXWo 416D, A00 (R291975.exe)

    - Realtek-Driver, 3/16/2011, V7.034.1130.2010, A01 (R294380.exe)

    So... even more confusing...

    Everything I know is, the DELL Inspiron N7110 has a:

    - Gigabit Ethernet Network card

    - W-LAN Network card

    That means to me, I need 2 drivers... In the discussion above was not explained, how to find out WHICH WLAN Adapter is built in... also not discussed is which driver to install for the Gigabit Ethernet Network card...

    However, I tryed like this:

    1.)

    For WLAN I installed the first Intel-Driver in the list (R311883.exe), because it has the latest release Date

    and Importance is marked as Urgent. I have no exclamation icons in the Device-Manager anymore.

    2.)

    For the Gigabit Ethernet Network card, I installed the Realtek-Driver (R294380.exe).

    No exclamation icons in the Device-Manager anymore.

    Notebook is connected to my LAN now and at first look, everything seems to be ok.

    I can surf around, websites are opening, Skype is connecting and so on...

    At second look I noticed, that when I download large files from the web

    (for example Avira with 90MB, some Servicepack with over 100MB, or Windows Live - then the download keeps interrupting. For example when I started downloading Avira, it interrupted 5x and I had to resume everytime...)

    First I thought it has to do maybe something with the new IE9, but also when I surf around with FF12, I can feel that it "stucks" all the time a little (delays, sites are not opening, VOiP interrupts) - all problems I didn't have before.

    So I guess something is still not right with the drivers I installed so far.

    Is there anything else I should install for the Gigabit Ethernet Adapter?

    Thanks,

    Alen
