Greetings - I have a Dell 6520 and am trying to install the driver for the wireless card and getting below:
Windows couldnt automtically bind the IP protocol stack to the network adapter

I have downloaded the latest driver from Dell but need some help getting the rest of the way.  I imaged the machine using ghost and am not sure if there is additional driver dependancies that may need ot be resolved.

    Set the wireless NIC to disabled in Device Manager, uninstall the wireless driver, run TCP/IP reset:

    Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator
    Then  netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt

    Now re-enable the wireless NIC, restart the computer and install the new driver.

    Does this work?

    Accepted Solution

    Your antivirus program could be preventing the installation. This is a common experience with Norton.

    Try permitting the application in your antivirus program or disable the antivirus program, then re-attempt the installation.

    Other alternatives
    netsh winsock reset (in addition to the netsh command provided above), then reboot
    sfc /scannow
