    Thanks for the reply. It was worth a try at least.

    You can try the latest drivers from Dell:

    Driver version 3.120.27
    Utility version 3.120.28


    They seem to allow for a bunch of options to be controlled, including Afterburner.

    Not sure if they would work with other Broadcom based cards, I have a Dell Wireless 1370 card.

    I don't know what the MAXX's .inf was doing but I suggest to everyone to install the old Linksys driver first and after to force an update with the Broadcom (bcmwl5.sys dated 2005 july 21st) !

    I got the latest drivers from Dell. Thanks SirDracula.

    I have the Dell Wireless 1350 WLAN Mini-PCI Rev 4.4 with the Broadcom BCM4306/BCM2050 chipset. I tried the drivers, and they didn't work. It kept saying that it didnot recognize my card after I forced the update. Am I doing something wrong. I just force the update and choose the Broadcom b/g driver, What do I do with the other two files?

    Anyway, the Maxx's .inf had a couple of extra options on the driver like up to 14 channels instead of 11 and to be able to select different countries. There is a list of what he did on the download section here under the NIC drivers.

    I have the WRT54GS version 1 and am using the HYPEWRT Thibor 191005 firmware. I just wanted to be able to have all the options for my wireless card too. I saw that the had a bunch of options not available with the drivers. I wanted to try out the Maxx's .inf's too.

    I am trying to get the speedbooster to work. It says 54 Mbps on my connection (for my laptop), but on my WMP54GS (desktop) it says SpeedBooster for the speed. Not sure if it is working on my laptop though.

    I am not sure but if they are both on, and the speedbooster is enabled, all the cards on the network have to support it for the network to work? I am using the latest official drivers for the WMP54GS and the speeds used to have readings of 108 and 125Mbps and now just says SpeedBooster.

    I have all the Afterburner, Framebursting and Express technology enabled on the router and wireless cards. Just not sure if it actually working though.

    Thanks for the info on the drivers HiSpeed, still haven't got them to work though. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks snwbdr

    You should consider upgrading to the TrueMobile 1370 or 1470.
    The 1370 replaced the obsolete 1350 over a year ago and is equipped with a newer Broadcom chip resulting in a smaller Mini-PCI form factor and less power consumption on your notebook.


    The 1370 & 1470 can be bought over the phone from Dell Spare parts or purchased online via the above link.

    Just tried the downloads looks like they're back. Whoever sent them in thanks. Somms thanks for the links to the new cards. I don't use a, just g so is there any other benefit besides the power? I got a i9100 and I could hold my breath longer than the battery would last. I leave it plugged in all the time. So I am not worried about power consumption. I would probably get anew laptop when the next generation comes out. Thanks snwbdr
