Here you go:
http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/product-suppo...
(that's Dell website).
You choose, your OS Win 7 64bit, and Networking.

What you otherwise do is to find your laptop drivers, type in Google "Dell Inspiron M5030 drivers"
and from the Google search you open the website, with the brand of your laptop (dell.com/.......).
So that you don't download any Viruses from some random ass website, who promotes false drivers.

I tried to search, saddly even though I found the driver.
The setup.exe weren't included on unoficiall atheros website.
Found some mentions of it on Dell forums, but no luck with the driver.
They also seem to had problems with it, at it was just re-brand of something other......wow, really Dell.

Anyway did you even try installing the drivers that are in supported site on your model on the link I gave you.
Even if it isn't same driver, it won't do damage to your PC, it will just say it's unsupported and won't install instead.
Cause sometimes, manufacturers write one chipset name on the name of file, but instead it supports many other chipsets too.

try going to Atheros website (http://www.qca.qualcomm.com/) and submit a ticket requesting to know where you can get the driver or asking for a link to download the driver
