Cannot find wireless driver for Dell Inspiron 1525

This question is answered

Hi community,

In the device manager it shows the network controller with an exclamation mark. I tried all the wireless driver from this link:

http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/DriversHome/?c=us&l=en&s=dhs&cs=19

None of them have worked.

My OS is Vista Basic 32-bit and the specific 1525 model is PP29L.

Can someone help me please?

  • I read that. But I just did solve the problem myself right now. I decided to open it up to find the model of WLAN card. After finding out it was a DW 1395, I had already downloaded it. But for some reason when I opened the file to download and install it didn't do anything. So I just went into device manager and manually looked for the driver and it installed. Everything is good now.
