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???
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
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.126.96.36.199) install again, as Microsoft installs their unstable driver (v188.8.131.52) with this update.

I was beginning to suspect a nearby nuclear meltdown...this finally helped on a Dell Studio 1537, PP33L. Thanks!
finally i got a solution...its very simple..go to the extracted folder where the driver setup is extracted...
Local cdrive /driver /dell/R258276.,,just right click on the setup n change its compatibility mode to windows 7 and tick run as administrator..n there u go..no more setrul error..it will install without any error... 🙂
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!
Thanks Steevekesler for the fix - just to add that your solution worked for me on windows 8.1 and now also on windows 10. Cheers!
