Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN Minicard and Windows 2008 x64 R2

Has anyone successfully gotten a Dell Wireless 1397 to work with Windows 2008 x64?  I have a Precision M4500 that I managed to install Windows 2008 x64 R2 on.  I installed the Windows 7 drivers for the card and the Device Manager says the device is working properly.  But when I go to enable the device, it acts like it is enabling it, but the properties always say "disabled".

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

You need to enable 'Wireless LAN Service'
