As someone later pointed out in the dell forums. A ndis2 driver for the 
Broadcom cards is available at compaq.

You can find the driver in the SoftPaq with the Name SP20958.exe

You can do better then this. Like listening to the people complaining.


It might just be your lucky day, if you only knew.
