Re: Intel PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B Mini PCI adapter softwear (w70n51.sys)

I have a Latitude D 505 windows XP professional SP2 on a wireless network.  I attemped to open a website (do not remember which site)  when the system locked up.  I could not close so I pulled the charger plug and removed the battery.  When it rebooted I got a message from Microsoft Online Crash analysis.

"Solution found: contact Dell Inc. to obtain the update"

The error was likely caused by:

Intel PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B Mini PCI adapter software (w70n51.sys)

Solution

I can't find any soultion at Dell's website.  when I search "w70n51.sys" I get no results found.

My system seems to be working well at this time, but do I need to install the fix that Microsoft suggested?  If so how do I find it?

Thank you for you help

I just got the same error today.  I'm running on a Latitude X300 w/windows XP.  I simply booted up my computer, at which point I received a prompt that a serious error had occured.  The Microsoft website gave be the same error message and suggested I contact Dell.  In searching the Dell site, I've not been able to locate any solutions associated with the LAN 2100 3B Mini PC Adapter Software.  If anyone has any insight, please advise.

Thanks

Re: Intel PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B Mini PCI adapter softwear (w70n51.sys)

I have a Dell Inspiron 600m laptop. This morning my screen went blue with the warning that an error had occured related to the Intel PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B Mini PCI Adapter Software (W70n51.sys) and that Dell had a fix for this problem. My problem looks like exactly every concern listed on the forum under that notice. Any fix out there yet?

I had exactly the same thing happen to me today on my Inspiron 600m. Is it a matter of downloading and reinstalling the driver? I also could not find anything specific to that w70n51.sys on the Dell website. So, I'm just adding my voice to the chorus!

I ended up downloading an updated driver for the Adapter from the Dell website. It seems to have fixed the problem. Just go to Dell and search for the driver by name.
