    i am trying to install the window 7 upgrade on a 32 bit dell vostra 1720 running windows vostra. the installation stalls and says the wireless driver is incompatible. the wireless driver is an intel wifi link 5100. the dell tech support said there was not an upgrade to the driver at this time.

    Does this sound right? any ideas?

    You might check the Intel site below. Look for wireless networking and your adapter. Make sure the driver is 32 or 64, depending on what you need.

    I never really ran the Dell driver on my older laptop so the Intel drives should work if they have one.
