    More info?
    What laptop is it (make/model)?
    Where did you get the driver installer?

    Sounds like the driver isn't compatable.
    I use DriverMax for upgrading drivers.
    If a driver I download using it won't work it offers a list of similar drivers to choose from.
    It works good for me.
    The free version allows 2 drivers added per day.
    For $10 US you get a 30 day Pro version with unlimited downloads.

    Driver update - Use DriverMax to update all your Windows PC drivers

    If you go to Drivers & Downloads | Dell US I believe they have Windows 8 drivers for the Inspiron N5110 (I assume that's what you meant for the model). Specifically I did see Wifi drivers. Try that one instead of your Windows 7 driver. Windows 7 drivers aren't necessarily compatible.
