I believe the 1510 is a Broadcom card. You can get these drivers either by opening

jockey-gtk

or by running

sudo apt-get install bcmwl-*  && sudo modprobe wl

For a quick broad fix for dell internet connections I use a USB wireless adapter. Cisco linksys adapter is recognised by many Linux distros as well as Windows. I also have a Realtek adapter on one of my laptops running Ultimate Edition Linux.

Hope this helps and saves some time for you.

What you need to know is which chip set is used for WiFi. Run the following and you set what chip set is used.

lspci |grep Net
