Specs: Win 7 Pro, Intel i5; 2.67Ghz; 4G RAM
About two months ago, I contacted you about finding out what driver I needed for my Dell Latitude E6510. I have tried everything that was suggested and even some things that were not suggested. So I thought I'd try again for your help.

I've called Dell; no luck there without a service contact. I contacted Intel because the modem is reportedly an Intel modem. No luck there. I have even reinstalled Win 7 and that didn't help either. Does anyone know how to tell if a modem is good or bad?

I've searched the laptop Device Manager and find there is no Wireless entry, but there are six entries under “Other devices” which is preceded with an icon containing “?”. Each of the six entries is shown with an icon consisting of (what looks like) a “1” in a yellow block preceding each entry.

The six entries are: Broadcom USH w/swipe sensor; Ethernet Controller; Network Controller ; PCI Serial Port; PCI Simple Connumications Controller; and Unknown Device.

Do you know anyone who might own a Dell Latitude E6510 and ask them what their wireless driver is?

I'm still a novice on Win 7 and therefore will need explicit details if you know how I can find out what the driver is.

Thank you.

Bob K.

PS: Is it time for me to take my laptop to a Computer Service company?

I've read through your previous thread and still may not be able to help on account there may not be any Windows 7 drivers for your oem wireless card.

Having said that... if you go to Dell's Drivers and Downloads Site:
http://www.dell.com/support/drivers...
Type in the service tag that you mentioned you found on the bottom of the computer in your other thread and click submit.

Select your operating system (Win7) and expand the network drivers section. After reading your other thread, it sounds like you have a Broadcom wireless card, so look for a Broadcom driver. If none of them work, you will need to do some google searches to find out exactly which wireless card you have.

If none of this helps, I would assume there is no driver for the wireless card you have. You can take it to a computer shop to know for sure.
