Dell Vostro 1500 - Wireless driver for Windows XP

  • I am unable to install the driver for my wireless device on my Dell Vostro 1500 laptop running Windows XP Professional. The laptop originally came with Windows Vista Basic edition. I have tried installing the driver for Windows XP from the original drivers CD that came with the laptop and also by downloading it from Dell's Web site. The driver program installs without giving an error, but after installation the device remains nonfunctional and the Device Manager shows no information about the wireless hardware.

     

    My system spec's are as follows:

    - Model: Dell Vostro 1500

    - Operating System : Windows XP Professional

    - Processor : Intel Core 2 Duo 2.2GHz

    - Main memory: 2 GB

    - Video card : Mobile Intel(R) 965 Express Chipset Family

    Are you sure you bought a wireless lan card?

    my Dells:
    Precision M6300 - XP SP3 / Windows 7 / Ubuntu 12.04
    Latitude D620 - XP Pro SP3
    Precision M6300 - Windows 7

  • Yes, and it was working with Windows Vista.

  • Are you sure you are installing the drivers for the card that is in your laptop?

    my Dells:
    Precision M6300 - XP SP3 / Windows 7 / Ubuntu 12.04
    Latitude D620 - XP Pro SP3
    Precision M6300 - Windows 7

  • I am not sure about that. I have tried different drivers from the Network Drivers category on the CD, but none of them work. Below is the list of drivers that I have tried:

     

    - Intel (R) Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN Rev: A10

    - Dell_Wireless (Except US, Japan) WLAN Card Rev: A14

    - Dell_Wireless (US) WLAN Card Rev: A14

     

    On the Dell's Web site, following is the list of drivers that are given under the Network category for Vostro 1500 (XP):

     

     

    Which one of them should I use?

  • To find out your laptop's orginal configuration when it left Dell, go to http://support.dell.com and enter your Service Tag number. If you can't decipher it, post the result here.
