Hello,

Kindly note that I've formatted my laptop without backing up my drivers, so I faced alot of issues to find and install XP drivers for my laptop which is Dell Vostro 1014.
I've downloaded and installed all the drivers except the WiFi driver, and I've tried some drivers but it didn't work so please help me to find and install the WiFi driver.


Thanks and Regards

Win XP SP2 patch - ftp://ftp.microsoft.com.ar/so/KB888111/eng/kb888111xpsp2.exe

Chipset - http://ftp.us.dell.com/chipset/R217742.exe

Wi-Fi (Dell Wi-Fi 1397)- http://ftp.us.dell.com/network/R189133.exe

Manual steps to install the Wi-Fi –

1. Extract the files normally

2. In device manager ---> Right click on Network Controller

3. Select Next ---> Choose to install driver from a specific path

4. While searching for compatible driver in a specific location ---> Browse and add the extracted folder (C:\DELL\Drivers\R189133\Driver\)


Modem - http://ftp.us.dell.com/comm/R223642.exe

Modem should get installed automatically when extracted
