Intel Wifi Link 5100 Half Mini Card - has a working linux driver
released by Intel, as was announced on the Linux Kernel Mailing List -
The driver should be there in 2.6.27. So the card is expected to work
out of the box from Intrepid onwards (I don't have any first hand
experience about this card, so cannot confirm). The driver was not
there before 2.6.27, hence the card doesn't work out of the box in
Are you running Intrepid or Hardy on your Dell Studio?

BTW, just for curiosity, what happened to your USB modem issue? Did it work?
