Dell :: 1525 Wireless Internet Connection Keeps Dropping

Jan 12, 2012

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 which was purchase in 2008. I recently installed a new battery, the old one was 11.1v but the new one is 10.8v. When using the new battery the wireless internet connection keeps dropping, however this does not happen when using the old battery. (This is the only thing that has changed on this laptop)

Is there anything I can do to stop this happening or do I just need to return the battery?

Dell Inspiron 1525 - Wired Connection Keeps Dropping

Sep 14, 2011

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525. At home wired/wireless internet works perfectly. At school I have to keep the laptop, wired because the wireless signal isn't strong enough. I have a brand new ethernet cable and have tried others and for some reason my internet always loses connection after a few minutes. It works as soon as I unplug the ethernet cable from my laptop and plug it back in, but then fails again shortly after.When I try diagnose and repair, it says I need to reset the network adapter, and when I click on that option it starts working again for a few minutes but loses connection shortly after.

Dell :: Wireless Connection Drivers - Inspiron 1525 Not Supported?

Feb 3, 2013

Have followed what you all have said and that problem posts more than ANY other about the Network Driver not being installed. This happens when you lose your operating and reinstall or up grade to AnyTHING other than what was originally installed, OR get the recommended updates from Microsoft. If you do happen to solve the problem the MS updates will disable it again.The Dell drivers they recommend for the  NOW non supported WLAN 1395 Mini Card which was installed originally in all Vista Home installs is the Multi device A17_R174291.exe (89.86 Mb) AND it does not work---NOT SUPPORTED pop up at beginning of install. and naturally no disk prodived by Dell in original purchase package.

Dell :: Latitude D360 Dropping Internet Connection All Time On Wireless Mode

May 19, 2012

My Latitude D630 has been dropping internet connection all the time for the past three days. I looked up similar problems on this blog: a) cleared the DNS cache, b) downloaded windows XP- service pack 3, & 3 network software recommended for my laptop by Dell from the website and updated to the Intel PROSET/Wireless WIFI connection utility, d) ran ipconfig/all from C prompt and know the ethernet connections are disabled, e) called and checked with our local ISP and cleared the connection from their end. To sum it, I have tried everything I know and am still not able to maintain a steady connection to the net using WIFI. However I am able to connect using the cable to the router, so my net provider said the problem is with the wireless connection on the laptop. I didnt have this problem before.

Dell :: Inspiron 1525 Notebook - Orange Lights Above Ethernet Connection?

Oct 31, 2011

We recently had a big storm and lost internet connection to our house. Whilst internet connection  has since been restored I've noticed that there are now orange lights above the port where the ethernet cable connected to on our notebook. I also cannot get internet connection using the ethernet cable. Does this mean my internal modem has blown?  I can use the wireless modem with no problems.

If the modem has blown, how much are they usually to replace and is it relatively easy? I have a Inspiron 1525 Notebook.

Dell :: Inspiron 1525 - Internet Running Very Slow

Dec 18, 2011

I'm using Dell Inspiron 1525. i just reformatted it because of some hard disc's problems. the first night after it is repaired, everything is okay. the internet is fast. but the next day, the internet is just running really slow, i dont even think i have loaded a complete page for the past 3 days, let alone downloading stuff.

well, i've tried most of the solutions i found online like turning off IPV6 and something else but the internet is still slow. and im using a ADSL modem, not a wireless one. the internet works just fine with other laptops. i called my technichian and asked. he said its the matter about laptop brands. every laptop has different.. i dont understand what he's talking about. so..

i used to have slow internet connection before reformatting but i thought its cause by my overloaded laptop memory, but now that it's reformatted i hardly have any software in it so what can i do?

Dell Studio 1558 - Keeps Dropping Wireless Connection?

Dec 12, 2012

Sometimes the connection will be lost altogether and when I try to reconnect it says "unable to connect" and I have to wait 5/10 mins until the laptop connects it's self again automatically.Other times, the signal strength shows as full (in the bottom right) but a yellow triangle appears with an exclamation mark in it and the status reads "Currently connected to Talk Talk 388380 No internet access". It stays like this for several minutes, then goes back to normal!?I've recently had fiber optic broadband installed, but I don't think this is the issue as it was happening before.Even when the internet is working, the connection speed is really poor; YouTube videos constantly buffer, even on low quality.I've plugged in the ethernet cable today and it appears to work fine, so I think it must be an issue with the laptop[CODE]

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.

Nov 1, 2012

Laptop: Inspiron 1525 (2008 vintage); Network Adapter Card: 1395 WLAN 802.11g minicard driver version; W7 operating system.

Connectivity has been intermittent the last few months and now none at all.  Laptop can see the router but  can't connect.  Tried connecting via hard-wire to the router but no connectivity 2) tried downloading a driver update but resulted in a message saying "software can't be installed hardware doesn't exist". Check of the adapter through the device manager shows "device is working properly".   Have two other dells on the same router and neither have any connectivity issues.

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?

I have a inspiron 1525 and 9 times out of 10 when I start up the computer I get the message "Dell wireless WLAN card wireless network tray applet has stopped working".  When this happens I can still get on the internet.  But I can't scroll the screen using the touchpad.  Dell installed a new touchpad and that worked for about one day.  I hooked up with them online twice and one tech updated the touchpad driver and another said it was my avast software that causes the problem, I say no way, because it worked for 6 months before this problem started.

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

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?
