Hello Guys,

you can have a look at my thread in Mini 10 Discussion subforum.

But to make it easy...
A14 isn't really good to see if this is new driver or old driver.
Because the A?? seems to be a model specific thing. So for model A it is A03 and the same version for model B is A01.

The newest driver i found is this one: ftp://ftp.us.dell.com/comm/DELL_WIRE...08_R254204.exe
You can use this one with 5530 (i have a dell mini 10 with 5530). The version is QS4.8 were your posted version is QS4.7.

The driver is for XP, Vista, Win 7 - x86 and x64.

Greetings Michael

I got this DELL_WIRELESS-5540-HSPA-MINI_A08_R254204.exe file from Dell website and it doesn't work on my Mini 10 with 5530 WWAN (usual 'authentication failed' message). I was not able to bypass this, despite numerous attempts.

If it worked before, possibly Dell has already fixed this package by adding authentication feature?

I really hoped that this new driver would fix countless issues I currently have with 5530 on Win7 (device not coming up after standby, occasional BSODs casued by driver, random connections drops, etc)...

Could someone please upload extracted driver or older, working version of DELL_WIRELESS-5540-HSPA-MINI_A08_R254204.exe file? (mine has 40*114*928 bytes)

Many thanks.

Win 7 driver was updated because you have to install QS4.7 and then QS4.8.
QS4.7 fix a lot of problems!!!!

Bye Zero
