There is actually newer drivers available, Dell just doesn't always make them easy to find. Here is the link to the one I use for the exact same card: Drivers and Downloads

You might want to run the installer in compatibility mode for Windows Vista SP2.

It shouldn't download an "installer manager". What browser are you using.
