Dell Inspiron 6000 Windows 7 Drivers Dell website only provides Windows XP driver for this model. Not to worry though, after installing Windows 7, you will only need to install 3 drivers which is the Audio, Graphic and Wireless. My name is Dhiren and I work for the Social Media and Community Team at Dell. You will find all avaiilable drivers on our support website. You can visit and look for specific wireless drivers by using either the system model or service tag. Regards, Dell-DhirenA Social Media Responder.

It is extremely unlikely that drivers included with a Windows installation ISO are going to be compatible with your system since it would be quite a challenge for MS to include all the audio, video, network, printer (etc.) drivers for ever piece of computer hardware on the planet. Sometimes you will get lucky and the default Windows 7 drivers will sort of work maybe.

After reinstalling Windows you need to visit the hardware manufacturers WWW Support site and download and install the specific drivers for your system.

If your 'new' system can't get on the Internet because of missing network drivers you need to download the correct drivers for your hardware onto a working system, copy them to a USB thumb drive (or something like that) and carry them to the non working system and install them using the old fashioned Sneakernet. Then when the new system is on the Internet you can download install the rest of the drivers you need.

You should visit the Dell Support site and enter your Dell Service Tag number and download the Windows 7 drivers you need. If Dell does not have Windows 7 drivers for your system sometimes the Vista drivers will work with Windows 7.

If you need help with that you need to tell us your Dell Service Tag number.

It sounds like if it was working before with Windows 7 you should be able to find the drivers somewhere but they aren't going to be on the Windows 7 ISO.

P.S. If your Dell originally came with XP and you install Windows 7 and do not have a valid 25 character Windows 7 Product Key at some point the installation is likely to become non genuine.

I have a friend with an Inspiron 6400 laptop with Windows XP. The driver CD is missing and the wireless driver is not installed .

I have tried several drivers but with no luck:

  • the proset/wireless driver

How can I install the drivers?

I don't have a wireless device under the Network adapter label. I only have 3 things : 1394 net adapter , Bluetooth lan access server driver , Broadcom 440x 10/100 integrated controller.. Nothing else appears even after installing the above drivers

Windows 7 embedded security updates. There is no Unknown devices

First, get the card's device ID from Device Manager:

  • Click start, then Run.
  • Type devmgmt.msc, then Enter.
  • Right-click your wireless device (probably listed as a Network Controller), then click Properties.
  • Click the Details tab, then select Hardware Ids from the drop-down.

Usually, you want everything before the ampersand (&). For example, my NIC's device ID is PCIVEN_8086&DEV_10F5&SUBSYS_024D1028&REV_03, but most drivers will only reference PCIVEN_8086&DEV_10F5 or PCIVEN_8086. Do a Google search on that to get the wireless chip or wireless device, then take it from there.

Good luck!

The 6400 is the dreaded Broadcom Integrated WiFi controller, it's inherently finicky and just bad overall, but that's not what you're looking for.

This link might have something at least mildly helpful for you. 'Broadcom: Identifying your driver'

It doesn't look like they even have much support anymore for their 440x except in the Linux world.

Also, your link was generic, here's for the 6400, the drivers for the wireless should be on there. 6400 Drivers

It might be worth entering the service tag of the laptop on the Dell website which will give the exact system configuration. Just search in the browser for the word 'wireless'.

I connected the laptop with a cable to the network. Then, under Hardware driver, turned on STA and downloaded the Ubuntu driver for me. After a reboot I connected to my wireless AP.
