    I know that there was a problem with the WiFi driver for this computer. To read about it google "inspiron n5010 wifi" and click on the first result. (i can't post url)
    At the second page someone says that dell updated Package R252544 for Dell Wireless WLAN 1520 Half MiniCard and now it will work.
    Is it true?
    I reinstalled Windows 7 and still don't know which driver i should install and i can really use help.

    Thank You!

    Having a Dell, I would think the best place to check for this information would be dell.com. Go to dell.com, click on "technical support" in the upper right. Then select support for home users and then "drivers and downloads". Click on "enter a tag" and enter the service tag from the bottom of your laptop. All relevant drivers should show up and you can download from there. If Dell's drivers don't work, I don't think other ones will either. Actually, you would have been better off posting this in the hardware thread. You might get more responses. Maybe a moderator can move this. Anyways, good luck.

    I have a Inspiron N5010 and all I did was use Driver Genius and it found it right away. Of course my wireless modem also is wired (like most) so I was able to do the scan. It come up with Intel(R) PROSet/Wireless SEStub v. Hope this helps! :p

    @katanov, if you will tell me the model of your wireless adapter, i may be able to give you the proper driver that you will need for windows 7. for most of these inspiron models they only use 2 or 3 different types of wireless adapters and it took me a while to find the proper one for my 6000, and the right one was not an R##### style driver as those are the drivers for XP not windows 7...
