  Dell (WIFI card/adapter/dongle)
  Mint (older version)
  Works perfectly
What works:

This worked straight off in Gloria and Helena.

What doesn't work:

It wont work straight out of the box on Mint 9 Isadora

What was done to make it work:

Use the Windows Wireless Driver tool and point it at the windows driver inf file.

Additional notes:

There is a Dell Linux wireless driver in deb format but there was something wrong with it when I was trying to use it. Its at: http://linux.dell.com/dkms/
