I saw that there seem to be 2 varieties of WiFi. One is Intel Centrino and the other is Dell N1705... I expect that the Centrino works out of the box. The Dell N1705 is probably not made by Dell (they don't make any components). At a terminal tryfotofill wrote:Good afternoon! I bought an inspiron 15 (6 GB RAM, 500 GB HD) last night and have Mint 14 64 bit installed. ( I trashed Win 8 right away ) Everything works well BUT the WIFI. This area is a weak point for me so I am struggling with a fix. The DELL website tells me that the wifi card is a Dell N-1705 with Bluetooth. If I can get the wifi fixed I'll be a happy camper, but, I am still working on it. I have a rather old HP laptop w/ 14 installed and the wifi worked immediately.
