Hi,

Thanx a ton for the steps that went smooth, but i have a doubt,

I just updated the Broadcom 802.11n network adapter, with the Dell DW1501, will that have any issues???

@AKanee:

You have to update the driver called "Broadcom 802.11n network adapter" as Reddy139 did.

just go on with the previous steps from step #4

@Reddy139:

If your driver name is: "DW1501 Wireless-N WLAN Half-Mini Card" under Network Adapters, then you should have the problem fixed just like what I did. and I haven't faced any issues since I installed this driver on my N5010.

Thanks goes to "stevekesler" without him I would still be searching for a fix till now 🙂

If you install Windows 8.1 Preview, you will have to go through this driver (Broadcom v.5.100.235.12) install again, as Microsoft installs their unstable driver (v5.100.245.20) with this update.

I was beginning to suspect a nearby nuclear meltdown...this finally helped on a Dell Studio 1537, PP33L. Thanks!

I have an E6400 and with the same NIC, and I encountered the exact same thing as you did, only I was going from Win 7 to Windows 10.  Your solution worked for me.  Thanks, I've been fight with this since I downloaded the Win 10 preview last month and I'm so thankful to be working again!
