Windows 7: Driver for Dell 1450 Wireless Adapter


17 Oct 2009   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
 
 

You can get the 64-bit XP drivers here: http://tinyurl.com/Dell-Wireless-1450-XP-64

After you download & run this file it should extract the setup file to your C: drive, in the "Dell" folder, in the "R129474" folder (C:\dell\drivers\R129474), and then automatically open that folder - double-click the "setup" icon.

The drivers should now be installed & working, you should see Dell's wireless utility icon and the built-in Windows wireless utility icon near the clock.

Even though the driver is installed & working, the Dell wireless configuration utility program may not work properly. However, you can disable this utility and use the built-in Windows utilities that do the same thing.

Right-click on the Dell utility icon and choose Exit.

Click the Start button, point to All Programs, click on the Startup folder, right-click the "Wireless USB 2.0 WLAN Card Utility" and choose Delete.

Click the Start button, type "msconfig" in the search box and press Enter. Go to the Startup tab, make sure and Dell "USB 2.0 Wireless LAN" items are UN-checked.

See the attached PDF for a copy of these instructions with screen-shots...

Windows 7 32 Bit Dell 1450 Driver

Guys I've got to say that i'm loving this forum. It was a great starting point for my quest to find a driver that I needed. I know you were discussing Windows 7 64 bit drivers, so I went out and found an alternative for the Windows 7 32 bit. Its a D-Link wifi driver for the same chipset.

The props have to go to this guy who started me on my search. Hosting4unow Tech Blog Dell TrueMobile Wireless 1450 USB Vista Drivers (jump to step 4 to skip all the waffle)
His article is over 1 year old but it still has the same application for windows 7.

I hope this helps someone.

Thanks for the info. In my office, I just setup a new PC which didn't have Wi-Fi. Found an old Dell 1500 wireless adapter, and your directions worked perfectly. It's a Windows 7 x64 PC and the driver works great. Thanks again.
