    Problem with Dell n5010 wi-fi.

    I am reformatting a dell n5010 laptop purchased on 01/28/11. When installing the drivers for the wi-fi, I get the message, The software you are attempting to install is not supported on this system. The software will not be installed."

    I have re-formatted this computer twice since the purchase and the drivers have always installed correctly, also the wi-fi was working before I erased the hd.

    It doesn't even come up with a check mark as the other drivers do on the dell drivers cd that came with the laptop.

    Did you install the chipset drivers first ?

    Hmmm,

    Looking at the drivers page there are several different wireless cards to choose from.

    Which one are you trying to install ?

    On the previous reformats I used:
    R252283 - Intel Wifi link 6250.
    R255501- Wlan 6250 wimax driver for win 7x64. from resource cd.
    And they worked fine. Even when using the dell drivers disk it does not show any drivers for the wi-fi.
