I’m starting to think we might never see compatible drivers that work with the built in framework. Anyway, I do not recommend you to do such hardware modifications! I don’t even have the “Biometric Devices” icon in the control panel. I did a lot of tests, on X86 freezes sometimes and on X64 gets worse, freezes all times, and my problem is very simple.

How to Fix Dell Broadcom USH Driver Problems
I have the same wireless card, too, but I don’t have any n radios to which I can connect to see if I have the same problem. I would love to be able to use the fingerprint reader but seeing how clean the Biometrics are that is built it makes me not want to install the provided tools from Dell as they just seemed clunky within vista. It seems that this software works with non-upek fingerprints latest one, for windows 7but we need a native driver for Windows 7.
I lose more time trying to discover a solution than if I put my password every day over one year.
Glad to see its not only me, hopfully some others will speak up and we might get a solution. Remove From My Forums.
No Biometric Control Panel Applet when using Broadcom USH CV w/Fringerprint Swipe Sensor
I don’t usu RFID access, although maybe smartcard will be useful if I every use this laptop in a business environment. Friday, June 12, 4: Just want to bump this up a little bit. Not an IT pro? I am really looking forward to native support, I just hope it comes. Windows Vista didn’t have any build in support for Biometrics as Windows 7 does.

Saturday, May 23, 1: I guess there will be months now util a new firmware is out. Windows 7 Hardware Compatibility. I’m starting to think we might never see compatible drivers that work with the built in framework.

Yes it is garbage but it does work with my precision W In my opinion this would improve the usability of the fingerprint reader significantly. Well I finally got my fingerprint scanner to let me log into windows with it by broadvom the “security configuration wizard” in Dell Control point.
I would like to use the built in abilities instead of relying on the bloated Dell application.
That appears to be the only thing you can configure with the wizard. My opinion… Embassy Security Center Sucks!
Saturday, September 12, I haven’t found anything so far. Driver is installed and registered correctly it looks like within the device manager.
Dell Precision M6400 Broadcom USH what is that?
Windows 7 has built in support for fingerprint readers and thats what I was hoping to use not the ControlPoint software. I used to logon windows and logon sites using password banks feature. Let us know if you need more information.
Too many problems, and after 3 years too much many much problems. Broadcpm, July 20, 3: I did a lot of tests, on X86 freezes sometimes and on X64 gets worse, freezes all times, and my problem is very simple. If this would be connected directly to the USB to bypass the Broadcom controller then the fingerprint reader will be normally enumerated by the operating system and it may work correctly.
Still showing up as “Personal Identification Device”. I have a Dell XPS laptop and the finger print reader will not work all drivers are installed and device manager says it is work properly.
