XP Wireless Driver for Zino HD??

I know this has been discussed before and I've made it work. 

But I've lost the XP driver for the wireless card  (1397, I think) that I used before. 

Now I had to re-intall XP and all the drivers I've downloaded and tried either do nothing, or report that  I don't have the required hardware installed.  I've even tried the driver off the Broadcom site; no help.

And yes, I know that Dell doesn't support this config, but It's worked quite nicely for well over a year.

Anyone?

 

Boowho??

Hi Boohoo123,

If I understand correctly, you are not sure what your wireless card is, and when you try to install the driver you used before, it doesn't work.

At this point, I'm not sure what we can help you with.

Chipset drivers are required for pci devices to enumerate properly.

Good day and thanks for the answer.  To clarify I HAD an XP driver that worked on my Zino HD.  

Got it off the 'net over a year ago.  I have since lost that driver and am rebuilding an XP partition on my Zino HD.

SO......  I need to be "pointed" to an XP driver that will work with my Zino HD...  It's maddening since I found the driver once before, but now I cannot.  The card is a Dell 1397, which is OEM'ed from Broadcom, I believe.

HTH.  Thanks

Boowho??

Try the Belarc advisor, which is pretty good at identifying hardware (assuming the chipset drivers are installed properly). If it's a Dell wireless card, then obviously Dell will have a driver.
