Dell Wireless 1370 WLAN MiniPCI Card
based on Broadcom Wireless chipset

No luck finding Linux Drivers Google has failed me or I simply haven't asked it the right questions but after hours of looking

I have tried to use the ndis wrapper thing but it ether dose not work or i am doing it wrong.
http://linux.dell.com/wiki/index.php/Tech/Wireless/Truemobile_ndiswrapper

and it was suggested i use wine but wine refuses to install the driver and i dint know how to talk it into it.


this is the link to the Dell Windows XP Driver for it

Hi karm2865

Any luck in solving the problem?

Which Puppy are you using?

Maybe the solution can be found here?

seems to work but will test it a bit more before saying it is solved.

other drivers have worked (poorly) once or twice than quit working completely.

the puppy's b43 drivers say it is for a pcmcia interface my card is MiniPCI i wonder of this is part of my problem? how would i fix / change it?


I have a dw1370 mini pci card that works fine in the different
dell laptops I've tried.
It uses the b43 pcmcia module in connect wizard.

It is different than your card; it's called bcm4318 airforce one.

Edit:

Just noticed; under "subsystem" your card says 1350.
