If you download the Intel Driver  (go here)

Then the download should include S32 and S64 folders under Win7 and an autorun in the root to run it.

1) Which wireless adaptor do you have?
2) If you can connect via wired connection, you can then use Windows Update to download a current driver automatically after 32 bit setup.
3) You can always use an inexpensive USB WiFi dongle ($10-$20) to bypass the internal Wifi, they usually come with drivers

That laptop seems to only come with Windows 7 64-bit and I do not see a 32-bit option.

That said, it also seems to use an Intel Wireless Card. So then look in Device Manager for the model of the wireless NIC and then look on the Intel site for a driver.

For my Thinkpad, the Intel driver for my machine includes 32-bit and 64-bit drivers, so that the one download covers everything.

There are at least 2 models of Inspiron 14R (N4010 and N4110).

Still if you go to the proper Drivers and Downloads page for your Inspiron, and expand the Network section...
find the file for your wireless card and instead of clicking on the Download File button, you click Dell-Driver (on the left), on the page that opens click on/expand the Compatibilty section you should see if the driver is for more than just Win7 64-bit.

e.g. the 58MB R292697.exe file for the DW1701 WiFi+BT3 card has drivers for 32-bit and 64-bit Vista AND Win7.

Go directly to the manufacturer of the device.  In your case thats Intel.

The 32bit drivers can be downloaded from here: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?lang=eng&DwnldID=18211

Yes, that is what was suggested above and we are awaiting d34dp00l13 to try.

Possibly the wireless card was turned off using an external switch, or key combination such as Fn+F2.
That will make it not be detected, too.
