Dell :: 1525 Laptop Unable To Reconnect To Wireless Network After Reformat

May 30, 2012

I have Inspiron 1525 with Marvell Yukon 88E8040 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller. After reformat, the network will not detect wireless modem after I think I have downloaded all pertinent drivers. In Device Manager, under Other Devices, The Network Controller shows an exclamation mark that under Device Status says, "The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28) To reinstall the drivers for this device, click Reinstall Driver." I have turned on the button on the left of the laptop and still missing something.Prior to the reformat everything was working well. I had the Blue Screen of death andthat's the reason for the reformat.

Dell :: Inspiron 1525 - Unable To Find Wireless Network?

Sep 20, 2012

After opening my laptop one day, i realise i can't find any networks. There are usually multiple connections available, be they my neighbours' or mine, but i'm unable to even find them. I'm not given the option to connect wirelessly, but only via cable. I'm not sure whether it's a hardware problem or there's something up with my software.I'm using a Dell Inspiron 1525 which is running on Windows 7 - 32bit.

Dell :: Inspiron 1525 Laptop Wireless Adapter Compatibility

Aug 26, 2012

I have Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop, which I bought 3.5 years back. The laptop used to work fine before. I just shifted home 1.5 month back. Previously I used to have the wireless router always close to my laptop, so I never realized this issue. Now the wireless router (802.11n) for Fibre optics internet is in the ground floor and my studio is on 2nd floor. In my office latop, which is a new one, I get 3 out of 5 signal bars and get 34-56 mbps signal. But my Dell laptop does not get any signal, but when it is closer to the router it works fine.

if I buy an USB network Adapter device which is n series and supports upto 300mbps signal, then will it improve the situation? If yes, then which devices are preferred and how can I know whether that new device is compatible with my laptop settings (as this is a bit old one) or not?  If not, then how can I improve the wireless reception? I have tried with booster etc already. I have also updated the network adapter drivers.the wireless card I have is: Dell Wireless 1395 WLAN minicard?

Dell :: 1525 Laptop Will Not Connect Wireless To Belkin N150

Jan 21, 2013

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop. It will not connect wireless to my Belkin N150. It use to, then one day it quit. I have an HP laptop and it connects wireless  just fine. So I don't think it is the router. I have tried to reinstall the router. And the PC tells me there is a network available,  but it will not connect. My question is... Can the wifi card be bad? Is there a key combination that might have been put in by accident?

Netgear WGR614v7 Laptop Drops From Network Won't Reconnect

Mar 7, 2011

Netgear WGR614v7 Router.I have three computers wi-fi networked via the Netgear router: a laptop, a Mac Mini, and a XBox 360.About 30% of the time, when I wake my laptop up, it's been dropped from the network. The only thing that seems to allow it to connect again is if I unplug the power from the router and plug it back in again.This also happens to the XBox 360 once and a while. It never happens to the Mini. I suspect the Mini never gets dropped because it never gets turned off or goes to sleep.Some things I've tried to no avail:

- restarting my laptop
- manually reconnecting to the network via the icon in the system tray
- ipconfig /release, /renew
- disabling power management on my network adapter
- updating my router's firmware

My research keeps pointing to my router's "idle timeout" setting, though that may or may not actually be the problem. In my router setup, I currently have the "Does Your Internet Connection Require A Login?" setting set to No. When it's set to No, I do not have access to my Idle Timeout setting. If I set Login Required to Yes, I do have access to Idle Timeout, but none of my computers can connect, and I'm unsure how to get that working properly. I've read that if I set Idle Timeout to 0 (zero), it essentially never times out.

Dell :: Inspiron 1525 Network Adapter Driver

Aug 10, 2012

My network device tree now shows three (actually two) drivers not working, as follows:

Tuerdo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface Driver

and, ISATAP Driver

It is my understanding that these are used to send IPV4 encapsulated IPV6 packets across intranet, and that I need to update the network card drivers to fix the issue.  I am not sure if the drivers shown on the Dell site will fix this issue.

Dell :: Inspiron 1525 - Broadcom 802.11 Multiband Network Adapter / Device Cannot Start

Oct 29, 2011

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 that suddenly has an issue with Wireless Networking.  When I try and troubleshoot it shows me that the Broadcom 802.11 Multiband Network Adapter has a Code 10 error and says the "device cannot start."  I have tried uninstalling and updating the driver, but it just continues to tell me that it has the best driver every-time I try and update it.If I plug the laptop in to the router with a wired connection it works just fine, so it is obviously an issue with the wireless adapter.what I should do in order to get this to take a new driver so it works again?

Wireless Network Adapter Not Working Since Reformat

Sep 2, 2011

I reformatted my father's laptop, upgrading the OS from Vista to Windows 7 but now the wireless network adapter isn't working. Basically, the laptop doesn't know that it has wireless. In device manager there is an exclamation mark against the "Atheros AR5007UG Wireless Network Adapter" entry. I've tried uninstalling the driver and reinstalling it, restarting the computer, updating the driver etc but it always fails to install the driver correctly. I don't know for sure the model of the network adapter, (windows tells me it's atheros but I'm not convinced seeing as the driver always fails to install) so I can't go to the manufacturer's website to download the latest drivers. I opened up the laptop but couldn't see any brand names on the network card. I don't have the cd's with the drivers on them.

Dell :: Latitude D830 - Can't Connect To Internet After Reformat

Jun 4, 2009

I had to reformat a Dell Latitude D830 with XP Pro SP2 due to a trojan.  After XP was reinstalled, I inserted the cds which contain the drivers and such for my system.  I installed the drivers and utilities, but for some reason when I plug my ethernet cable into the laptop, it says there is "Little or No Connectivity".  I plugged the same ethernet cord into the desktop I am currently using, and it works just fine.  The connection comes straight from the wall to the computer with no router or modem involved.

Dell :: Vostro 1500 - After Reformat Windows XP Would Not Reload Drivers

Feb 23, 2013

I have the same machine, same problems. After a reformat, WindowsXP would not reload drivers (from the OEM software provided by DELL). I reinstalled (in order) with a fair amount of difficulty got them all to load EXCEPT for the network adapter. I've download the adapter software AND driver; still no luck. Still working on this bugaboo. Incidentally, what saved me with the other drivers (yellow question marks on Base System Device controller, ethernet, PCI, SM Bus, etc) is that I had run a Belarc Advisor utility printout prior to the reformat. So now I at least had something to compare the before and after reformat with.

Dell :: No Connection Detected Error On XPS 8300 After Reformat / Fresh Install

Sep 23, 2012

I have a Dell XPS 8300 desktop.  The desktop recently got a virus which caused me to completely reformat the computer.  I thought the PC came with a drivers CD but either it did not or I cannot find one.  Now that I installed a fresh copy of Windows 7 it will not connect to the internet.  I have tried downloading all network drivers, bios drivers and making sure BIOS is enabled but still I am unable to connect to the internet.

What can I do to fix this problem or is there any place that I can purchase the actual drivers CD for my PC so that this does not happen again?  I have gone to the drivers and downloads page, put my tag number in and literally downloaded every single driver listed and still it is giving me the "no connection detected" error.

Dell :: Inspiron 1525 - Wireless Card Not Detected

Dec 29, 2011

My Dell Inspiron 1525's hard drive died recently. I bought a new hard drive onine because my warranty expired. I installed the hard drive and a Windows Vista Premium operating system. I previously had Windows Vista Basic.

I tried to install all of my drivers, but neither by ethernet connection or wireless are able to connect. I  ran the Intel PROset  Wireless diagnostics and the hardware portions fails. The error says driver version does not support Intel PROSet/ Wireless.

The wireless card does not show up in the device manager under network adapters. I still am missing a driver for the network controller but do not know where to fnd it.

When I plug an ethernet cable into the computer directly it says no connectivity and will not light up green. why it will not connect to the internet.
