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.
e.g. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA1EA0CD6598

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 
)...  all OS's that were ever installed on it when built will be in the 
Operating System picklist.
