Every drivers, you need for you Dell laptop, is on Dell support website : http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?os=WW1&osl=EN&catid=-1&impid=-1&servicetag=&SystemID=VOS_N_1500&hidos=WW1&hidlang=en&TabIndex=
Download and install it.

For Dell Vostro 1500 device wirless driver you need to download the following driver from this location as its not available in your resource CD.

I woke up to the BSOD with unmountable boot drive this morning. After several attempts to repair, with no luck I decided to bite the bullet, and lose everything with a clean install using Dell's supplied discs.
Clean install went fine, but when I reinstalled the aplications cd from dell, and thought everything would be fine, I realized the dell wireless card was no longer available.

After downloading and installing everything on Dells site for my model (vostro 1500) there was still no wireless card in the device manager.

HOURS upon HOURS later I came across this post. I downloaded the file above, and I now can connect to my wireless network!!
WHY the heck do they not include this in the cd... or even on the Driver/download page for this model???
I am interested to know about your post
