Driver for Dell Wireless 1505 Draft 802.11n WLAN Mini-Card

Jump to solution

Have a Studio desktop 540 that came with Windows VISTA. I later updated it to Windows 7 64-bit. The 5G band was working until my old router died.

I bought a new Western Digital N600 dual band router. The problem I have is that my PC doesn't register the 5G band, only the 2.4G. The NIC card driver dates back to 2008 (from Dell) and the manufacturer (Broadcom) passes the responsibility to Dell. Won't even talk about it.

My iPAD recognizes 5G so I know the router is OK.

Does anyone know how to get the latest W7 driver for this card? I can't see how to get it from Dell.

Is it a better alternative to just go and buy a new NIC card?

Thanks, Bob

Hi,

So Dell community is my last hope..... Trying to find the driver for Dell wireless e-pci card DW1502 (056CGK WPET-123GN-A-V02 19K-A08-2101R Rohs) to use it with my OptiPlex 755 under Windows 7 (32bit). Downloaded and tried around 2 tens of them from Dell site with the final note "...cannot be installed on this system". Seems that the driver for combination of Win 7 and Optiplex 755 does not exist, weird. Thanks ahead for any advice!
