"This download gives you a choice of 3 zip files of which I unzipped the first one and after 3 hours of searching the net it HIT first time!!

Excellent...supposed to be a Dell True Mobile 1150, but ended up using drivers from Gateway and it works perfectly. Good luck!!"

"Works great so far. This site is great. Dell Gold Tech support was clueless as to what driver was needed. Gee, funny how it's one of their C840 laptops my company bought for them. You would figure a giant like them would standardize all wireless NIC cards for all c840 Latitude models, and then offer the drivers on their website. Clueless donkeys!! Also, get use to he

"Oddly enough, if you install another driver that is more compatible with WHCL certification, the signal drops like bad radio interference. Stick with this on you laptop, and refuse to let the auto update replace it, you may loose signal if you have any distance between you and the connection point."

"After experiencing great frustration in locating a driver for my Belkin Desktop Wireless Card Model F5D7000 (there was no version number indicated on the card whatsoever), I noticed a Broadcom chip on the card.

I downloaded these drivers for Broadcom and SUCCESS!

My Belkin wireless card works using the Broadcom drivers."

"The driver in the extracted Broadcom_9528289 folder worked (after trying many from other uploaders)and the wireless mini-PCI card in a Dell Latitude C840 laptop I just bought is now working. It must be a non-standard part as the wireless driver from the Dell site didn't work.

Thanks! Al"
