Thanks for your post. When I went to install that driver a setup error popped up which says "No compatible hardware found. The software you are attempting to install is not supported on this system. The software will not be installed..."
Looking at the details when it was first unzipping I don't think this driver was for my specific 1395 WLAN mini card. Did I do this wrong or is there another driver for XP and this card I need to download.
You can try this one
The error you recieve has be wondering if you truly do have a 1395 card installed. Are you 100% sure?
What system do you have?

Your post on 10-2-08 at 6:38 where you included the driver worked. I loaded that driver successfully and the wireless card is searching for the network. However, the connection status gets stuck at "acquiring network address" and trying to repair the connection does not work either. Any suggestions (And thank you SO MUCH for your help thus far.)
It sounds like its running into problems during the DHCP address request, so the wireless connection itself (the equivalent of plugging in the network cable) appears to be working.
Make sure the firewall on the computer isn't blocking the wireless connection. Also, if you are using MAC address filtering on the router, make sure the wireless card is allowed to connect. You can find the MAC address of the wireless card in either the Dell Wireless Utility, or from the Network Properties window for the card.
