Inspiron 1011, 1397 mini wireless NIC, bcmwl5.sys blue screen

Moved to new house unpacking and found this Dell 1011 I purchased for a Christmas presant last year.  Needless to say problem never fixed, Dell could care less after warranty ran out.  I have not purchased a Dell product since.

Ok rant over.


Running XP Home, using the Dell 1397Mini NIC,  updated driver and the Wireless management would not see any networks, Enable, Disable, Repair connection then sometimes it works.  But most of the time I get the Blue screen with the bcmwl5.sys error.  Searched the drivers Down loaded most and nothing.  Is there any any way to fix this error.  Lan NIC works fine, but if I wanted a Desk top I would have purchased a desktop.
