Broadcom 802.11N wireless adapter

This question is not answered

My hard drive died on my XPS One and I installed a new one and then ran all the Dell discs to get the computer back. All was perfect except the wireless adapter that is (I assume) built in, will not start and says "code10" There are plenty of posts all over about this but no explanation on how to cure the problem.

Very strange as it was working fine and I am using the Dell supplied driver from their disc.

If anyone can point me in a direction it would really be appreciated.

  • Gary,


    When you reinstalled the operating system, did you install the Desktop/Notebook system software 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

    Start with the Desktop/Notebook system software and the chipset drivers and follow the list.
