Dell :: XPS Q740 - Upgrading Wireless Network Card

Feb 27, 2013

I have a two year old Dell, an XPS Q740 (from the system info) Intel i7 CPU. Works fine but I've recently upgraded my router to an N standard with dual channels operating at 2.4ghz and 5ghz, so I'd like to improve the the network options for my machine. Looking at the device manager, it says I'm using an Intel WiFi link BGN 1000 which operates at 2.4ghz.

What card if any I can install to bring about a speed improvement. Fiber broadband is also due in my area soon so I want to take advantage of this.

Dell D60 With Built In Intel Wireless Card - No Network Interface?

Jan 19, 2012

My friend has a dell d600 with the built in intel wireless card. All of a sudden his computer no longer shows that there is a wireless interface in the computer and he needs this computer for work.

Dell :: XPS 702X With Intel Centrino Wireless N-1030 Network Card

Oct 15, 2011

The wireless on my laptop keeps dropping out. When I first got it it was fine, but after a while I started experiencing problems on every wireless network I connected to. Most of the time it would connect, but after around 10 minutes or so, the connection would drop out and the wireless card has to be "reset" so I can connect again. Otherwise I have a little yellow triangle over my network signal strength bars. I've updated to the latest drivers ( but it was no luck.

This happens with every wireless network and I know it's not the network because my old Vostro 1500 is running just dandy on all of them.

Dell :: Wireless 1397 WLAN Mini-Card / Connecting To WPA-PSK Protected Network

Feb 27, 2009

I got a Studio 1535 Laptop which comes with a Broadcom WiFi card that is named "Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN Mini-Card" in the Hardware Manager.

I tried to connect to my ZyXel WiFi router but though i had it all configured right, Windows would always come up with "you entered the wrong key". After playin around for some time i figured out that everything just works fine when i switched my router from WPA-PSK to WPA2-PSK. My router features both WPA-PSK and WPA2-PSK but since my other PC does only support WPA-PSK the router is set to that and i want it to stay that way. I just don't want to buy new hardware for all my other computers.

So is this WiFi card strictly incompatible with WPA-PSK? Does'nt make any sense to me because WPA2 works just fine! Normally they are downwards compatible aren't they? (Moreover, when setting up a connection i can choose WPA-PSK from the dropdown menu.

Dell :: Inspiron 1720 / 1390 WLAN Mini-card - Wireless Drops And Can't Find Network Again

Oct 28, 2007

I have new Inspiron 1720 running Vista with the Dell wireless 1390 WLAN mini-card.  I will be connected to the wireless network just fine, but it will then disconnect.  My problem is I cannot re-connect to it without having to do a total restart.  I go to the place to refresh the list, and it finds nothing.  I ask it to repair the network, and it can't becasue it cannot find a network.   I have at least 4 other networks in the area that I can normally see, and none appear when I hit the refresh button.  But I totally restart the system, and everything works fine again (until it drops again).

Dell :: Inspiron 1520 - 1390 WLAN Card Wireless Network Controller Stopped Working And Closed

Feb 6, 2010

I regularly get this message (but not everytime) when I start up Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit.

"Dell Wireless WLAN Card Wireless Network Controller stopped working and was closed.a problem caused the application to stop working correctly. Windows will notify you if a solution is available."

 Then I get this following message:"Solution Found: Address a problem with your WLAN card.Your WLAN card has stopped working properly. This is a network adapter that allows your computer to connect to a wireless network. To find out if an updated version of your WLAN card is available, contact your device or computer manufacturer."The strange thing is even though I get this message I am still able to connect to the internet via a wireless network. So there is no problem as such it is just annoying to keep getting this message when Windows starts up.I have checked on the DELL Support website and I do have the most up-to-date driver already (Or I think I do).

The message refers to my:

Upgrading Internal Wifi Laptop Card

Mar 5, 2013

I am trying to upgrade some older laptops (about 4 years old or more) WiFi. Most of them have I believe 802.11 b,g cards in them. I would like to upgrade to b,g and n so they will connect to all home networks more easily. I believe most of the b,g and n internal WiFi cards have three wires were all my laptops only have two.

Dell :: XPS L501x Network Card Keeps Burning Out

Nov 4, 2012

A while ago (around 5 months) my wireless card suddenly stopped working for no reason whatsoever. Since then I had been using a usb wifi dongle but I got sick of that so decided to find out what the problem was. All my drivers where up to date, I re-installed everything, no luck. Opened the laptop up to find the wireless card had burnt out. Ordered a new one from Amazon (It was legit, more expensive than ebay ones) Put the new one in everything worked fine, wireless back on as normal, now 3 days later, wireless randomly turned of again, smelled burning inside my laptop, opened it up and the new wireless card had burnt out again.  My friend thinks its the circuit. I had defiantly connected everything properly as I have taken many laptops apart. 

The network card is: Model: 622ANHMWIntel Centrino Advanced N6200

Everything else on the laptop works perfect.

Dell :: Network Card Diagnostics (XPS9100)

Jan 2, 2013

I've been getting the BSOD randomly on the internet and just went through the Dell diagnostics - by component and symptom. Only error I got was for the Network card : Strength Signal test Tested and needs attention. What do I do to investigate this?

Network card: Dell 1525 WLAN Pcle Card (802.11n) with external antenna.

The computer is connected to the router via ethernet cable.

I've talked to Dell tech support and they're convinced it's a software problem but this implies otherwise.

Dell :: Gigabit Network Card On XPS 8300 Is Not Showing 1000 On Properties Of The NIC?

Apr 9, 2012

I checked the NIC Properties and the Speed & Duplex only shows the following 10 half, 10 full, 100 half, 100 full and auto. There is no 1000 half and 1000 full. My old gigabit NIC on my old computer shows all, 10s, 100s, and 1000s and the auto. They tried to fix it and even changed the driver but it still is not showing the 1000s. Their option was to change the motherboard with a refurbished one and my computer was just bought just 2 months ago. The original computer had 12GB memory, I7, AMD graphics card, 460 PSU. no blue-ray, no usb 3. The new setup is 16GB memory, I7, Nvidia GeForce GT 550 Ti, Usb 3, Blue-ray, I think 800 PSU.I am running Win 7 Home Premium 64. I have a Gigabit connection from my internet service so I wanted the NIC to go that fast too. The specs shows the computer to have a Gigabit NIC but the properties is not showing the 1000s.

I have 10 Vostro 460s, the network cards are not being found on startup.  You have to reboot the systems 3-4 times to get Windows to find the Network cards.  All drivers are up to date.  This may be related to a Windows update, since the machine were fine for a month or so until an Update came out.

DELL GX280 - Relationship Between CPU Usage / USB Hard Drive And Network Card

Jun 19, 2013

I have an old computer (Dell gx280) that has a external usb 2.0 hard drive connected to it. I was trying to copy the files over a gigabit network connection to another computer and it was only transferring at approx. 2.5 megabytes a second. This was only using a small fraction of the gigabit network card in both the source and destination computer. I saw the CPU was maxed out on the source PC b/c of an application. Once I quit that application the CPU usage went back to essentially nothing. The copy job then jumped up to 14 megabytes a second and was using 30-35% of the gigabit connection.

The NIC and the USB ports are on the motherboard. How did the CPU usage slow this whole process down and was it impacting the network card, the USB port or both?

Dell :: XPS 600 Not Connecting To Internet After Upgrading To Windows 8

Dec 4, 2012

I was recently given a Dell XPS 600 computer as a hand-me-down and wished to update it to Windows 8. It was previously running XP Service Pack 3, 32-bit. The installation went well, but my network and audio drivers were wiped out. I've been doing some research and searching and found the page with the drivers that I need. As long as I can connect to the internet I know the rest of the issues can be easily fixed. url...

'm not seeing any drivers under Vista for the network card. Is there any other way to diagnose this? Remember, I can't connect to the internet on the problem machine. I've heard that XP drivers are not compatible w/ Windows 8...although I've heard mention of Comparability Mode.

Dell :: Upgrading To Gigabit NIC In Dimension 1100 / B110?

Dec 11, 2008

I have a Linksys 10/100/1000 Gigabit NIC (m/n EG1032), which I've tried installing in my Dimension 1100/B110 without success.  I followed the installation instructions from Linksys (i.e., open case and add card to motherboard, then start PC, at which point WINXP Pro should identify the new hardware and I would then select the driver from the disk.  However, the "Found New Hardware" never came up.  The Dimension 1100/B110 comes with an Intel Pro 100 NIC onboard.  I next tried to disable the onboard NIC through the Hardware Manager, and use the Add Hardware feature in the Control Panel, but it didn't find the new NIC on the first go round.  So, I installed the driver utilizing the "Have Disk" option.  The Linksys NIC was installed, but stated that it might not work properly, and a look at the Hardware Manager confirmed that there was a problem (a yellow exclaimation point next the the new device and a Code/Error 10 in the Details section).    The yellow light on the new NIC did flash when the ethernet cable was plugged in, but it didn't connect to the network.  The Windows Troubleshooter recommended removing and restarting the PC, but the new NIC still was not found when Windows booted up.  I next restarted the PC, went into the Bios and disabled the network interface.  The PC took forever to restart into Windows, and still the new hardware was not recognized.   I'm wondering whether there is a pin on the motherboard that I need to short, in order to be able to install a new NIC, or if there's some changes I need to make in the Windows software someplace.  I've restored the Bios setting and have enabled the onboard NIC in the interim, so as to be able to access the internet and my network printer.
