Dell :: 2200 BG Back To Windows To Control Wireless Networks
Sep 1, 2012
I switched to Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200 BG by mistake and now I can't get connected through my wireless! I did not mean to do this, but I have not been able to switch back to Windows to control my wireless.
I've a Dell laptop with Windows XP. I was able to connect to my own secured wireless network. Suddenly no networks are found anymore where my other laptops are able to find wireless networks. Repairing the wireless network connection does not resolve the problem.how I can find my wireless connections again?
I have a dell inspiron 2200 (old, I know!) It had wireless when I was given it, but the computor programme was updated to Ubuntu, then back to windows, and now the icon has dissapeared. I don't have the manual, and I have no clue about how to get it back...b
I wiped out a Dell Inspiron 2200 and re-installed Windows XP Pro SP3 on it. Everything seemed to work fine until I try re-installing the Wireless Driver. The dell support website pointed me to the Intel PorSet/Wireless 188.8.131.52, which I downloaded and installed successfully, with the only problem.... It does not work.When I open the utility it pops a message saying that the "Driver is not installed", and no signals show or anything. When I go to the device manager, the OTHER DEVICES shows a "network controller" with the yellow question mark, but when I connect to the internet (via ethernet cable) to update the driver, windows can't find nothing out there to solve the issue.
I bought a MacBook Air thinking I would be able to surf the net wirelessly. Can't do it. It works great with HDMI cable, but I don't want a cable trailing across the room. Wish I had bought a Dell!!! So, can I dedicate my old Dell Inspiron 2200 for this function? I can upgrade the 4 MB RAM to 1 GB if that would work. The Dell uses Internet Explorer, Windows XP and a Netgear WNA3100 Wireless-N 300 USB Adapter. I have upgraded the video and BIOS on the Dell, and the drivers on the Netgear Adapter. I have a 2Wire modem/router from AT&T with 3.00 mps. My new 32" LG HDTV is 1080p with 60Hz, but it is NOT a smart HDTV. I know I won't get 1080p with the old Dell, but what could I expect to get? Roku will not give me surfing capability in a web browser.
Need Ethernet driver. Inspiron 2200 BFNQV81. Actually need all drivers however I have found some. Dell is very lacking in supporting this unit. The service tag returns a desk-top, and not many drivers. What was listed/installed was incorrect. The unit got stuck on stupid, display reverted back to 400x600, speed problems as well as many other problems. Unit is very slow now however somewhat usable. .Recovery disk would be nice. Currently utilizing external Wifi hardware and software. Have same problem w/ other Dell units.
I have a Inspiron 1520 which came with windows Vista and I recently did a Windows 7 clean installation. There were no drivers specified for Windows 7 in Dell Driver Download so I installed Vista drivers, connected to internet via LAN Cable and upgraded most of the drivers.
WiFI networks could be detected when installed for the first time but after a shutdown it never detects again. Sometimes it randomly detects, I tried using the laptop for 2 weeks now and only 2 times the WiFI automatically came up.
There is a switch to pull after turning on WiFI radio, which will display the list of WiFi networks in a window, that Switch is not responding now.
On my Cisco SLM248G Switch the Back pressure and Flow control are currently disable.For the Flow control is it best to set it to enable or just Auto negotations and for the Back pressure is it ok the Enable it.This Cisco Switch has 3 servers and 15 laptop users connected to the ports.Will there be a draw back to enable these settings.
I have a Toshiba Tablet PC that came with the configfree software. It worked fine for a while but then it started giving connectivity problems. I tryed to disable Configfree by all means possible to no avail. Then I decided to uninstall it successfully, but I still can't return the network connections control to windows. It seems like it is still under configfree. My guess is that some internal switch at the registry level is still saying that the wireless control is not windows.
I was on the computer, it went into standby due to low battery. Turned it back on, and it wouldnt connect to the net as it couldnt find any connections. Tried repairing - to no avail. Checked all my networks were working, and enabled one that wasn't. Restarted computer still no connections being found to connect to.Windows XP, Asus, Service Pack 3, Version 2002.
I'm using Windows 7, and when I lived at my house I was able to connect to wireless networks without a problem. I just moved today into my brother's old apartment and for some reason I can't connect to his wireless network. I can see it along with a number of other wireless networks, but I'm unable to connect to any of them. When I attempt to connect to a network absolutely nothing happens. Typically at the bottom right corner of my screen something will pop up saying it's trying to connect, but for some reason that isn't popping up. I know it's not a problem with the router because I'm unable to connect to any of the networks, and I also had no trouble when I tried to connect to it with my laptop.
Windows XP on an older Dell Latitude. All wireless settings appear to be on, yet "no wireless networks are found in range" All other devices in the house see the same 3 networks (mine, mifi, and next door), so this is specific to this machine.
Also, I normally keep this laptop docked, 95% of the time, and earlier in the week disabled the wireless (right click on icon, disable) as I normally do when connected to the dock, since it seems to perform faster (no testing, just my opinion)
Other factors: The computer got undocked without normal undock procedure taking place.
Don't know if this is related, but the sound wasn't working either the last few days I have redocked, rebooted, restarted, checked every possible config I can think of, checked the router to be sure that my device was still listed, etc.
I have a desktop with windows Xp and I too have no wireless networks come up in the box on the right hand side, I know the wireless Linsky cisco wifi is working as I have connected it to another laptop with Vista, but have tried everything to get it wireless and nothing works the Desktop works fine when hard wired?
i have linksys network monitoring installed on my pc but have been using windows xp to monitor the network. However, after turning on the linksys monitor yesterday, I cannot go back to windows xp. When i do, I cannot view available wireless connections.
I have a Netgear DGN2200 and a BT Home Hub V1 and wish to use my Netgear as the WBS and the Home Hub as a repeater. I have set both up, and the Home Hub finds the Netgear and recognises it as a WBS (I think) but cannot get internet through my Homehub at all.
I am using Windows Vista.I work in a small office and our old computer guy set up our network. Not sure why, but he "hid" the two available wireless networks so they do not show up as available. How do I go about "unhiding" them? He left a folder on my computer that says "main router config" but it is a .bin file and I cannot open it. I did find out what our IP address is, but when I type it in the URL it does not show up.
I've formatted my computer(Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit), then I downloaded my wireless adapter driver from my manufacturer's website, installed it and tried to join my home network but it couldn't connect it(or my neighbor's network, which I could access before formatting the computer).
My laptop doesn't detect any wireless networks. It used to and should, but It hasn't for quite a long time. It stopped detecting them around the time I signed up with my current ISP. I have a dell Inspiron 9300 laptop w/ Win XP sp2
I own a Dell Studio 1747, i7, 8GB, etc.It has a DW1520 Wireless-N half-mini card.Yesterday I encountered a problem with my wireless adapter when it stopped recognizing my home network (wireless), although it did recognize other networks as the neighbors.I did every reasonable step while trying to restart the router, then disable and enable wireless, then restarted the laptop.Nothing worked and it could not recognize the network nor to connect to it as a hidden network.After taking a (not so good) advise from a friend, I cleared the wireless network list and then uninstalled the adapter from the device manager.I then restarted again and counted on the Windows 7 (home, 64 bit) to re-install the adapter.
Since then I'm experiencing bigger trouble when I probably missed a driver or a device.I tried to download and install the drivers for the adapter from Dell's size and got "R249128.exe", then installed it. Still no change.I cannot enable the wireless connection at all and when doing a diagnose to the "Wireless Network Connection" I get the message: "There might be a problem with the driver for the wireless network connection adapter".Since I am clueless now, although I do plan to check with a Linux boot cd that the adapter is working.
i am using Dell inspiron model N4050 my laptop does not seem to detect any wireless networks around and i am unable to connect to wifi, networks works fine with ethernet cable.My drivers are up to date.I have done and tried everything i know of.
I typed "cmd ipconfig /all" and that's what I received.

i received a dell latitude D610 and installed the operating system and the drivers, when i open the network adapters in device manager it says i have the Broadcom NetXtreme 57xx gigabit controller. when i try to connect to the internet with a cable it works fine but it wont let me detect wireless networks or if i unplug the cable an error pops up saying A network cable is unplugged i dont know if i have the right driver(s) installed.
I am using a Dell Inspiron 1750 running windows 7 and all of the sudden last night I lost internet connection an was unable to find it again. after searching online i found something that sent me to services to start my WLAN autoconfig but it only gives me the message "error 998 invalid access to memory location" I just want to get back online
I have recently reinstalled the Vista 32 bit OS on my Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop. The wireless card installed is a Dell 1395 WLAN mini card. I checked and the card and it is enabled. If I connect the internet cable it works. When I search for a wireless network, none appear even though other computers are accesing the router that is next to the computer.
I'm pretty computer illiterate. So how do I know if my Compaq Presario 2200 has wifi? I've read several threads but. I don't have the computer in front of me but I believe there is no wifi button. Do I buy a PC card or a wireless networking adapter - USB? Where does the PC card go? Will I also need a driver?
My Dell XPS (Windows XP) is not connecting to my network..can't get anything to show up on the networks in range list. My other laptop is fine. But I just upgraded to Firefox 4 on the Dell, and then the connectivity went askew.
I have a brand new Dell Inspiron 1764 laptop that I received on the 25th of June. It is "replacing" a Dell Inspiron 9100 that has gotten to be too slow and bulky for my needs. For support purposes, both laptops are running on Windows 7.Overall, I love my new Inspiron 1764. However, I have noticed seriously degraded connection/signal strength with the wireless card (Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN Mini-card) compared to my Inspiron 9100 (Dell Wireless 1350 WLAN Mini-PCI card).
In areas of my house that my 9100 can get full signal strength (5 bars), my new 1764 is getting 2 or fewer bars. This behavior is also not limited to only my house, as I have tested it at my job and in an area less than 10 feet away from the wireless router, I have "Internet connectivity problems".
I tried twice this morning to speak with Dell support. The first person I spoke at least initiated a DellConnect session with me so that they could check some of my settings and such (however, why they went twice into my sharing settings I could not determine since they have absolutely nothing to do with signal strength.)
Unfortunately, I was disconnected from the session when I went to an area that had less signal than right next to my wireless router.I then got back on chat support with Dell and received another technician to speak with. I explained my problem, told them that I was in a DellConnect session with the other technician, and they looked up my support contract.They then told me that my warranty does not cover software issues and referred me to the software department and told me it would be an extra charge. I told them that I did not believe it to be a software issue in any way, shape, or form. They told me that it must be a setting issue. I have since spent several hours scouring the internet forums on Dell and other websites checking people who have had similar issues. Some of their issues were admittedly from software settings, but I have still yet to find anything that indicates to me that I have an incorrect software setting.
As of this writing, I am standing in my kitchen, typing on my Inspiron 9100 with a full 5 bars, while my Inspiron 1764 sits next to me with a measly 2 bars, and I am literally standing 7 feet above the room that houses my Linksys WRTU54G-TM router.Personally, I suspect a faulty wireless card, but how do I convince Dell to hear my case and replace it rather than trying to bilk me for unneeded software support?
I have an Alienware M17X-R3 and I’ve been experiencing several networking problems with it recently- most importantly that I can’t connect to any wireless network. It detects all the networks in the area, but when I select and try to connect to one nothing happens. I can still use a wired Internet connection, though. “Troubleshoot problems” or “Diagnose” just tells me that I have no preferred wireless networks. When I go to the Network and Sharing Center, the “Set up a new connection or network” button doesn’t do anything. When I go from there to “Manage Wireless Networks” the “Add” button doesn’t do anything.
I’ve tried disabling and enabling my DW1501 Wireless-N WLAN Half-Mini Card, and reinstalling the drivers. I’ve disabled the “Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power” option on all my network devices. I’ve used a system restore. I’ve run a scan with Malwarebytes and my computer had crashed by the time I looked at it again thirty or so minutes later; it had tried to restart but was unable to because there was “No bootable device”. I powered it off and started it up again and it worked fine. I also ran a Superantispyware scan that completed successfully without finding anything and immediately crashed, but restarted normally.
A few other things that may or may not be related:
-When I boot I get a message that says “Could not reconnect all network drives”
-When I booted I used to get a message from GoogleCrashHandler64.exe that said “C:Windowssystem32dbghelp.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error.” When I went to msconfig and disabled all non-Microsoft processes under services and startup I no longer got the message.
My XPS M1330 was working fine until today. While using the computer, it disconnected from my home wireless network. Windows Device Manager tells me the device is working normally. The WiFi switch is on but the WiFi catcher doesn't find any networks. I can connect to my home network with an Ethernet cable and my desktop, which is on the same network, can connect so i know its not my modem or router.
