    I've got an Inspiron 530S with a wireless card in it which attaches
    through a plugged in cable to a round antenna.

    I picked up a terrible virus last week and had to reinstall Windows XP
    in the computer, which made a lot of drivers disappear.

    The little wireless card in the Dell has a label on it with
    "DP/N 0MX846" on it.

    Can someone please point me to where I can find the correct driver for
    this card? I've looked through the Dell website and tried a couple I
    downloaded from there, but they didn't work.

    Thanks Guys,

    Here is some info about the card. It is a Dell DW1505 wifi card with Broadcom chip. For more info, use this link on the Dell community web site.

    This link does not tell which versions of Windows are supported. You are running XP, Vista, 7 or (I hope not) 8?

    Dell began shipping wifi cards as an option in desktop/tower computers beginning with Vista, more or less... Ben Myers

    Many Thanks Ben!

    With those links I was able to find the correct driver and the Dell
    Wireless is back in business again!
