Ok, help me out here. I believe you when you say you have already tried doing these things, if you don't mind trying again ... and let me know what error messages you get if any?
First a question: did you download and install the chipset driver for your laptop? It is here: Drivers and Downloads
Hopefully it will install and might prove helpful. It is 64 bit Vista, 1520 compatible.
This is the only 64 bit Vista WLAN driver available for dl at this time: Drivers and Downloads
Download it. it is an EXE file so when you click on it, it will auto extract the driver to C:\Dell\drivers\R174292, then start the installation. See if it will install and if not what messages do you get?
If it refuses to install, that is OK. Follow the pictures posted earlier for a manual install and browse to C:\Dell\drivers\R174292\DRIVER, and click on bcmwl6.inf. Please let us know if that helps or what messages you get?
It is going Dark here so I will check tomorrow afternoon, my time. Good night and good luck!
