just joined but i had a virus on my laptop which i had to re-install windows 7 ultimate (not through a CD) so i log back in my laptop to find my f-keys aren't working and that i cannot connect to the internet without the ethernet cable , beside my network controller it has a yellow exclamation mark saying "windows cannot find the driver code 28"
im running windows 7 ultimate on a dell inspirion n5010
Recently got my Inspiron 5010N, only issue Im having is using the built in wireless hardware. I can browse and find networks, I just cant connect to any. My home network is now open and unencrypted (running G), but it still wont connect. However, I installed a USB wireless adapter, and I can connect without issue. So I dont think its a firewall, etc. I think its something with the built in adapter...
After checking out the device manager, it looks like the laptops using a "DW1501 WLAN Half-Mini Card". I went to the downloads page through dell.com to update my drivers, but Im still having issues.Im running Windows 7 64 bit.
I did not get the bluetooth software for my inspiron n 5010 in 'drivers and download ' for windows 8,so what should i have to do to get this .
I have purchased and installed windows 8 (not got with windows 8) ,i am trying to install R226746 in my laptop but it is showing that "the program has compatibility" issue, send me a link of compatible bluetooth driver for windows 8. (my laptop is Dell Inspiron Intel N5010)
I have purchased a Dell Inspiron N5010 (with Windows 7). It works all fine but I need to know the MAC Address of the Ethernet adapter.
I have tried IPconfig /all, but it does not show my Ethernet adapter. How can I check and confirm my Ethernet card's physical address. I need to use a restricted LAN which requires me to know the physical address of my Ethernet adapter
I also am using a Dell Inspiron N5010 with Windows 7 and have trouble connecting to Netgear WNR 1000. I have an Apple that has no trouble making that connection. I have spent over $100 to a local computer repair company trying unsuccessfully trying to fix the problem and $129 to Dell Technical Services with equal lack of success and then was told by a technical support person that they had fixed it, that they would not provide futher work to fix it. The fact is that the error occurred again immediately the moment the Dell technician hung up. I spent the following day just running internet on a cable connection for about 8 hoooting.ble shurs trouble free and then switched it to wireless, which failed in about 10 minutes as my own troubleshooting. This made it clear to me that the problem was only in the wireless connection.
They problem is the Blue Screen error time message that pops up at random times any time the computer is operating on wireless. At other timerred again immediatelyre occuthe failuat s it operates normally. The Blue screen error causes the computer to shut down and restart. The only solution I have found is to return the Netgear router to the store where I bought it (within 30 days of purchase) and pay the additional cost of a different router.
Service personell should at least be kept aware or incompatibilites, explained or unexplained, between particular router models and particular computer models so as to save this waste of time and money. I have lost about 3 weeks of useful time on this computer in addition to over $200 in direct costs attempting to find a fix.
I have a Inspiron N5010 and I am having issues getting a consistent network connection. This is occurring over Wireless and Ethernet. I have tried new drivers for both the wireless and the LAN devices. We have tried this over a direct wall jack(known good) and a VOIP phone(also known good jack). We are having issues with SSL and IPSEC VPN as well but im not certain they are completely related as they VPN is at his home and the network issues are at the office.
I am using Dell Inspiron N5010 laptop.. i have installed a new version of Win 7 64bit OS and i am trying to install drivers. All the drivers have been installed but wifi drivers are not installed Showing the message of "No compatible Hardware is found for the software".. I have tried with all the available drivers for it.
i have to re-installed windows 7 on my Dell Inspiron 15r but now can't connect to the internet, the device manager shows the network controller in not installed at well as the PCI Simple Communications Controller.
Ive had this computer for 2 years now. Last night the wireless randomly shut off, so i just figured it was the internet. But when i tried to connect to a different internet, i noticed that it said my wireless was off. So i figured that i just bumped the wireless button. I went to go turn it on again, but it will not turn on. I've tried hitting the button many times including using the Fn key. I can hardwire using Ethernet cable and it works, but my wireless does not. I have Windows 8 and have had it since it came out, so i know its not that. My drivers are all up to date and i have tried system restore.
I have recently purchased a new HUAWEI wireless modem. This lovely little device will connect beautifully to my iPad, to all the Acer computers at work, to my Samsung mobile phone. It will not however successfuly connect wirlessly to my Dell Inspiron N5010.
I plug it in via a USB port and can connect to the internet that way. If I unplug the USB cable the computer says I am connected but when I try to access a webpage the browser says I am not connected. In the bottom right of my screen my computer says I am connected. This is most confusing and frustrating. I took the computer to work and had the IT department look at it but they had no answers for me.this same computer has recently been connecting to a different wireless modem so I am at a loss.
I want to use this adapter on a computer with Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit OS.Downloads lists versions V1.0 and V3.0 for this adapter. How can I determine the version I have?V1.0 list no driver for Win 7 64bit. V3.0 list a driver for Win 7 64bit.Research I found looks like the adapter is not computable with Win 7 64bit.
Recently I have bought Dell Inspiron 15R-N5010 DOS based laptop and installed Windows 7 OS from the dealer's shop from where I have bought.
Problem is that I'm not able to access internet via Wireless connection (but with Wired connection can access internet).

- To install software in Compatible mode does Windows 7 service pack needs to be installed?If yes than which version?
- How can we check that Wireless driver is installed correctly ?
I have followed instructions and installed R140135.., also R159805
I have not received any error messages. Fn+F2 did not work, so I tried to activate BTTray within both of the driver programs. Nothing has happened. My Bluetooth devices (via Control panel) is empty. Bluetooth settings displays nothing.
I am trying to transfer photos from my Nokia phone. The phone cannot find the laptop.If I slide the button next to the CD drawer I get visibility of Wireless, or accidently turn it off (!).Under Dell drivers I can see WIDCOMM, R14035 & R159805.If I type BTTray.exe, it takes me there but double clicking it does nothing. Ditto if I run R159805twon.
I was wondering if internet connection sharing was made impossible by Microsoft on netbooks even after an Anytime Upgrade to Windows 7 Home Premium. This is because whenever I create an Ad-Hoc network on my netbook I am unable to turn on Internet Connection Sharing. Though my friend with a Toshiba notebook running Home Premium is able to turn on Internet Connection Sharing.
I have tried Intel tools and latest drivers ( w/ and w/o pro wireless utility) but cannot pass thru code 10 error. Tried uninstall and install....as earlier card 4965 agn worked fine but seems like some conflict is stopping successful 5300 agn driver install.
I recently bought a personal laptop that I'd like to use at work. It came with Windows 7 Home Premium installed and because of that, I can't join it to the Windows Server 2003 domain we have. I don't really need to print or any of the other things that go with being on the domain, I just need access to a few key folders. Is there any way to access shares on the server with Win 7 Home?
It works then it stops seeing the homegroup machines. After struggling with this I have determined some things.
When it stops seeing any homegroup machines, xp, vista 64 and two dlink 323 nas boxes, I can get it working again by restoring the drive with a backup for a time when it did work.
I ran a lan software that showed me mac address, ip address, master brower and workgroup of every machine on the network. I ran the software when the Windows 7 home premium machine didn't see the workgroup. The software showed the windows home premium 64bit machine was not reporting the homegroup name. Looks to me like something is changing causing the win 7 home not to report the workgroup name. I tried changing the workgroup name, rebooting, changing it back then rebooting and it didnt' fix it.
When the machine is not seeing the workgroup I can ping the other machines but I can't map them using their IP addresses. When it lost the workgroup lately I noticed the first sign this time was I could see the machines and directories but could not access them being told I didn't have permissions/access basically. Can't remember the exact wording.
I am at a loss of what to do to fix this and I would perfer a fix verses reinstalling everything from scratch which may or may not perminately fix the problem.
the computer was using a different program to manage the wireless connection. Even though it said it was connected, my internet didn't work. Not knowing anything about this new program, I removed it and tried to connect with the Windows wireless manager. It didn't acknowledge any of the wireless connections around, just a computer-to-computer connection. I took it to a friend's apartment to use their computer and internet to search for options and it still didn't recognize any networks around, now not even the computer-to-computer connection. It now tells me "No wireless networks were found in range. Make sure the wireless switch on your computer is on...." The Mini doesn't have a "switch," but I read where F2 can turn it on...however, pressing Fn-F2 is not working for me, either.
