Now I am just pasting this from Dell - I know it says Dell Wireless 1395 card, but this is as close as I can get for now -
Feeding time in Australia (6.00PM) and the Mrs is yelling at me to give this a rest for an hour - See if it makes sense to you -
After a TON of searching, I found a thread somewhere that indicated that the Dell 1395 card is really the Broadcom 4310 card, so I did a search for the Broadcome 4310 and came across a driver provided at Hewlett-packard's site. The filename is "sp36684.exe", type that into google and you can download it straight from HP.
I downloaded it, extracted it to a directory, and then:
1. Go to device manager & right-click on the Dell Wireless 1395 card and choose "Update Driver"
2. Click "No, Not this time", then "Install from specific location"
3. Choose "Don't search, I will choose the driver to install"
4. Click "Have Disk"
5. Browse for the directory you extracted the "sp36684.exe" file to
6. Choose the "Broadcom 802.11b/g WLAN" card
7. Click "Yes" on the warning to let it install
Voila! It now supports WPA-PSK (as well as giving the option for WPA2-PSK, although my router only supports WPA-PSK so that's all I could test). You won't be able to use the Dell Wireless Utility to configure the card anymore, you'll have to use Windows to configure the wireless network settings. A small price to pay for the added security of WPA-PSK
Hope this helps, go figure, the solution was found at the HP site... Post a comment back if this works for you so that the Dell tech's can see that it's a common problem (and solution) and maybe provide an updated (or in this case, an older version of the driver, because you WILL be using an older driver version) driver to get the WPA-PSK to work for that card.
