Re: Problem with Dell Wireless 1704 802.11b/g/n

I have the same issue with a new vostro 3360 running the 1704 wifi card. I am considering just buying a Intel 4965 4965AGN wireless WiFi PCI-E to replace it with.  I am assuming the 4965AGN will work with the dell.

That worked really well for me - changed from "auto" to "aux", went from around 300 kb/s to 4.5 mb/s.

(have a brand new Inspiron 15z laptop with Windows 8, wireless card is Dell Wireless 1740)

Thx.

Just had a new batch of 3360's arrive, they have all dropped the 1704 and moved back to 1703 the 1703's work fine. My suggestion is replace the 1704's with another an intel or see if dell will swap for a 1703.
