I went through the same thing around fedora 16 with a 14e4:4328...
replaced it with an Atheros-based Ubiquiti SR71-E and that works fine in
windows AND linux.
Not that I have anything against Broadcom... all of my current routers
and access points use Broadcom radio chipsets.
Don't expect any help from Dell with the problem unless some flavor of
linux was offered as an OS when it was sold. You can tell if it was, on
their Drivers & Downloads page for that model

Operating System picklist.
