XPS M1530 will not automatically install wireless network adapter after reinstalling OS and drivers from CD

This question has been answered by FleaDoctor

I had to reformat my HDD and reinstall everything.  I can't access my wireless network, because there apparently is no network adapter insalled.  I do autodetect and it does not find the driver.  I've let it seach online, and no luck.  Can someone look at my original configuration I got from my Service Tag and tell me which driver and where to get it for my network adapter?  Thanks.

  • Thanks Rick.  I did install them first.  At least I installed the CD that said to install first, before reinstalling OS...

All Replies
  • I have the same issue.  Can someone look at my configuration from the Service Tag and tell me which driver to get (and where) for my wireless network adapter?

  • FleaDoctor,

     

    Try reading...

    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.

     

    You have a Dell Wireless 1395 4312BG adapter and Internal Bluetooth, 355, Windows Vista Os

  • Thank you Sumesh!  downloading now

  • FleaDoctor,

     

    Operating system first, then the notebook system utility, the chipset drivers and memory card reader.

     

    Follow the list. Everything should install except maybe the ethernet adapter. Iused to own a Studio 1737. Came with Vist 32-bit, I upgraded to Vista 64-bit and then upgraded to Windows 7 64-bit. Had minor problems because of mismatched ram.

  • Thanks everyone.  The wireless is now working.  However, prior to reinstalling everything, the laptop used to be able to connect with my router using 128-bit encryption, now there's not enough spaces for the password to connect to the wireless network.  Any idea how to get it to work again with the router, besides lowering the encryption?

    Thanks

  • FleaDoctor,

     

    There were conection problemns and even some CSOD's from Vista. Make sure to update it to Vista SP2 as soon as possible. Then check to see if you can connect to 128-bit encryption.
