Although I had to install windows 7 32 bit and I am facing a driver issue with wireless adapter.
When I try to connect to the preferred network I get "Unidentified Network - No Interntet Access".
I know this is a driver problem because it works well on Ubuntu.
So as the original configuration from Dell site lists:
"WIRELESS : DELL WIRELESS 1703 CARD"
so I downloaded this driver : http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/DriverDetails/Product/inspiron-15-3520?driverId=K21VK&osCode=W732&fileId=3126779147
with no success.
Is there anything I can do?
Sorry for the long post.
Thank you in advance
