Re: Is DELL 1510 N WLAN Mini card compatible with W8?

Jump to solution
I seemed to have found a solution to my issue.  
I was able to find a Win 7 driver that solves my Windows 8 driver issue with very slow and intermittent/dropped
wifi connections for the Dell 1510 N WLAN (Broadcom 4322) wifi adapter.
 
The driver I found is: Network_Driver_WD35F_WN_5.100.235.12_A37
I found it here: 
http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/04/driverdetails/product/precision-m4500?driverid=wd35f&fi...
 
The the auto installer will not run without error. However, it will allow you to extract the files from the driver
package to a directory of your choice.  Then you can point Windows 8 driver change/update utility 
('Have Disk') to that directory - 'Drivers/Win7/WL' and select the bcmwl6.inf to install a driver 
(Broadcom v.5.100.235.12)

I hope this helps others.

Hi stevekesler,

Did you try to run a Windows Experience Index under Windows 8? If yes does value seems normal?  On my system everything seem to work fine but I cannot run the assessment at all. I doubt the driver for the Intel 965 Display Adapter is the culprit.

@omehenk

I'm confused - did the direct X 2010 patch as recommended by SpeedStep solve your wifi issue?

Or did the Win 7 Driver recommended by stevekesler solve your issue?

The direct X is marked as a potential solution, but I'm not sure how that is relative to Win 8 and slow wifi issue

@berlion,

I ran the Windows Experience Index under Windows 8 and it ran fine (rating 4.1).  I believe this is similar to the Win 7 rating.

I am using a Dell Studio One (1909) All-in-One unit.  Video is Geforce 9400.   I replaced the hard drive with a SSD and clean installed W8.  It is very responsive (shut down <10 secs, boot-up <15secs) 

 I would check your video driver and maybe check NVidia or ATI for an Win8 driver.

Stevekesler,

Your scores are pretty good. My studio is one year older and I can only get a poor 3.2 with Windows 7. This is of course the lower, Desktop Graphics Performance value. Other values are over five. As the computer's performance with Windows 8 is more than satisfactory I will not bother with the Windows Experience Index.

Thanks for your help.
