    WIFI problem - kindly help


    Hi, I have Latitude D630 having "Dell Wireless 1490 Dual Band WLAN Mini-Card"
    problem is whenever i try to connect through wifi, the system freezes, it happens only when i connect through wifi, the wifi adapter works on window 7.
    another problem is that i have G945 intel graphic card. windows update installed the latest version of the driver but it wasn't working, specially games weren't working, now i installed old version of the driver (which was for windows 7) and everything is just fine.

    but unable to find wifi driver.
    Thanks.

    If you can find a Windows 7 driver for the Dell 1490 mini card then try installing it in compatibility mode for Windows 7.

    I don't really see any Windows 8 specific drivers for this.

    That system was made for XP, try getting a different updated version of pci NIC card and installing it.

    The drivers from Dell aren't up to date for this as expected.
