Can someone please help me? I own a Dell Vostro V131 laptop and recently, i did a clean installation of Windows 7. I managed to install ALL the drivers with the exception of ONE - the Wireless Internet Connection driver.
Here is the screenshot below.
Can someone please advise where and how to get this driver and=, how I can get the my laptop to connect to the internet without needing an Ethernet Cable?
Please provide the Hardware IDs as in the case above, see my wiki Windows Reinstallation Guide:

I'd love to upgrade from Vista to Windows 7, but when trying to do so, I get an error message about the Optiarc DVD+- RW AD-7640a device drivers not being compatible. Anyone else have issues with the original DVD not working with windows 7 install? Do I just need to use an external DVD drive to complete the install?
The optical drive will be compatible with Windows 7. The driver for optical drives is inbuilt to Windows and anything that works on Vista will work on 7.
You may install via USB however but the DVD drive will work fine especially if booted from BIOS:
What model of Dell do you have?
