Windows XP Drivers

I have a Dell Vostro 3550 which had Windows 7 pre installed on it. I have installed Windows XP on so that my programs are fully compatitble and fully working as they do not work under Windows 7.

The problem I am having is finding an XP driver for the Wireless Lan card on it. I believe it is the Dell Wireless 1701 a/b/g/n, not sure if it is the 1702 but I am sturggling to find one anywhere.

All help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Re: Windows XP Drivers

The 1701 is a bluetooth card.  The 1702 is a wifi card - first determine which you're looking for.  Since Dell doesn't support XP on this model, you'll have to try Broadcom (which makes the card) for drivers.

Upgrade to windows 7 pro or Ultimate and install XP Mode then install your programs in the XP mode Virtual machine.
