I have a Dell Vostro 1400 notebook with a Broadcom WLAN 1390 installed. Recently, I have upgraded the WLAN driver to version 5.60.18 using the upgrade provided by Dell bearing ID no R242438. After the upgrade, I have confronted the following problem. The name
of the adapter has changed in programs like StopCut and NetCut. In other words, when I try to access the drop list to choose the name of my network adapter, I find the name of my ethernet adapter mentioned correctly, Microsoft Virtrual Adapter mentioned correctly,
while my Wirelss adapter is labelled as Microsoft instead of DWLAN 1390 as it used to display before. The adapter is displayed with its right label (DWLAN 1390) in the device manager and in the adapters list in the network connections window. However, whenever
I use a third party application to access my adapters list, the label I got for my wireless adapter is Microsoft and not DWLAN 1390. I rolled back to my old driver and I get the same result. Any help with such a problem plz?
