Dell Wireless Adaptor - Vista Drivers

  Jon-ny 15:44 22 Mar 2007

I bought a 'Dell Wireless 1450 dual-band (802.11a/b/g)' from... Dell online and i'm concerned with the drivers...

On the Vista Upgrade Advisor it says that the Adaptor will have compatability issues with Windows Vista

When I go to the vendors website (click here) and search for drivers it doesn't come up with any matches and I can't search via my Service Tag because I didn't buy the Adaptor with my computer (also a Dell)

What I want to know is if the issues I will find with Vista will be minor or will I lose my internet connection because Vista won't understand it....

And feedback will be GREATLY appreciated.

Thanks in advance...

Oh, do you know if upgrading to Vista will disrupt the Adaptor and disable the internet...

I don't I'm afraid. When I upgraded some of my hardware (eg Logitech webcam) just worked fine with the XP drivers.

You could be lucky or in despair.
