Dell Wireless Vista Ultimate x64 BSOD: X64_0x3D_bcmwl664+580b4
Hi there,

I recently ordered a new Dell XPS M1530 with Vista Home Premium. I upgraded
it to Vista Ultimate x64 and ever since I installed the drivers from Dell for
my wireless, I've been receiving seemingly random BSODs. Here is the
information you may find necessary:

Device Name: Dell Wireless 1505 Draft 802.11n WLAN Mini-Card
Driver Title: "Broadcom Extensible 802.11 Network Adapter Driver"
Driver Location and Name: c:\windows\system32\drivers\bcmwl664.sys

As a note of mention, this same issue happened to me once in Windows 7 Beta
1 build 7000, which I installed on a separate partition on this laptop. Any
ideas or help would be greatly appreciated. I've already tried searching for
updated drivers (via Windows Update; I haven't Gooooogled or searched Dell's
site yet) and run through all the, "Problem Reports and Solutions" scenarios,
sans disabling auto-tuning or the device altogether.

Thanks for your time and any help,
Stephen

In Vista Ultimate, can you roll back the driver from device
managers, network, adapter, properties, driver?

In Win7, there is a known bug with the Broadcom driver. The network
team at MS is testing a fixed driver. Remember, Win7 is still a
beta.
