I just got a vostro 1500, and got the intel 3xxx series card. I've heard that the dell series are inferior to the intel cards, and it's only like $40 to get the card I got.

Here's the one I got
Intelģ PRO/Wireless 3945 802.11a/g Wi-Fi Internal Card [add $29]

I've been told that the dell cards suck. But I don't actually know that for a fact. If you end up getting the one, let us know how it works out.

If you get the Intel card, let Windows have control. The Intel software sucks.

Yeah, it's terrible. It runs like 5 or 6 processes. I installed the drivers and then removed the software suite portion.
