I reloaded Windows 7 on my Dell Inspiron N5040 yesterday and the driver for the Network Controller failed to load. I have looked on the Dell website and what seems to be all over the internet for this driver to correct the issue, but cannot find it. Anyone know where I might be able to find this driver?
I can help you identify and download the appropriate drivers for the Network Card in your Dell Inspiron N5040. I have added you as a friend. Please accept my friend request. I am sending you a private message as well. Respond to the message and provide the system's Service Tag so I may access your system records and check for the correct drivers.
I am glad to know that the issue has been fixed. I am sorry the drivers from the support site didn't work. As you mentioned that you downloaded the drivers from Atheros official site, I would request you to post the link from where you downloaded the drivers so that it helps other users.
