Windows 7: network driver missing

network driver missing

I am using win XP and had to wipe. I was missing various drivers so I got them off the Dell site. Seems installation order is important, so I think I followed the correct order (tried multiple orders when was still missing a network controller). I have all installed except the wireless controller. I am able to use internet via ethernet hard wire but can't find the controller for wireless. I used a driver elvaluation site to get the controller I need, but when I downloaded the controller from this site and going directly to the manufacturers site, there isn't an executable file to load the driver. Any suggestions???

Am I wrong or are you looking for windows XP drivers? If so your wireless is here Dell Wireless 1450 (802.11 a/b/g it says USB 2.0 Adapter date 2/13/2006 version 18.1.50.CM2 I'm seriously confused since this is Windows seven forum Yet their hasn't been any mention of windows seven in any of your posts. And the only drivers for your system are XP. Best wishes Fabe Drivers & Downloads
