Dell :: Inspiron 1300 - Windows Cannot Configure Wireless Connection

Oct 3, 2006

My lap top and pc were both accessing internet fine. Now my laptop has the message windows cannot config. wireless connection. If you have enabled another prog. to manage this connection use that software. Then it says ifI want windows to config., start WZC service. I am a novice and don't understand any of this. I don't think I have done anything to enable another prog to manage the connection. I have tried reloading isp disc and making new network connection but to no avail. the little network logo has a red x constantly.

Dell Inspiron 1300 - Wifi Doesn't Work On Windows Xp

Nov 18, 2012

I have a Dell Inspiron 1300 which crashed, service tag . I was able to start it again using the Dell Operating System Reinstallation CD for XP Professional with SP1, that came with another computer. I then installed a Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3 and Internet Explorer 8. However the wifi (wireless) does not work. I went to setup and assured that it is enabled. I assume that I have lost the driver for it. Before the crash it had a working wireless connection. I need to know what driver to install to make it operate. Setup indicates that my computer has a MiniPCI card 1370 Broadcom Corp.

Dell :: Inspiron 1300 Wireless Does Not Work?

Oct 29, 2012

My wife has a Dell Inspiron 1300 which crashed.  I was able to start it again using the Dell Operating System Reinstallation CD for XP Professional but the wifi (wireless) does not work.  Before the crash it had a working wireless connection.   It appears that I need to reinstall a driver for it.  How can I get a driver when I have no internet connection on that computer?  I have tried loading on a flash driver from another computer, but it doesn't seem to transfer.  What driver do I need and how can I get it to install on her computer?

Dell :: Inspiron 1300 - Internet Keeps Cutting Out?

Nov 18, 2011

basically a friend of mine gave me his old dell inspiron 1300 because my other laptop died. 

It was running really slowly, and still is, so I cleaned the registry, defragmented, all sorts of things, I also started to download updated drivers for the system. Since I downloaded the broadcom update my wireless has been utterly useless, it keeps disconnecting and reconnecting by itself, its really annoying. I guessed it could be the laptop not liking the update so i uninstalled it, but it still has the same problem. 

We have other laptops and devices connected to the wireless so it's not that.  oh! by the way here are any laptop details you might need.

System: Windows XP Home edition
service pack 3
laptop details: Dell Inspiron ME051
Intel celeron M
processor - 1.60ghz
504mb RAM

Dell :: Mini 910 Inspiron Wireless Connection Via Windows XP

Feb 24, 2010

the computer was using a different program to manage the wireless connection. Even though it said it was connected, my internet didn't work. Not knowing anything about this new program, I removed it and tried to connect with the Windows wireless manager. It didn't acknowledge any of the wireless connections around, just a computer-to-computer connection. I took it to a friend's apartment to use their computer and internet to search for options and it still didn't recognize any networks around, now not even the computer-to-computer connection. It now tells me "No wireless networks were found in range. Make sure the wireless switch on your computer is on...." The Mini doesn't have a "switch," but I read where F2 can turn it on...however, pressing Fn-F2 is not working for me, either.

Dell Inspiron 1300 - Network Manager Won't Connect Wired Direct To Cable Modem

Jul 17, 2011

I cannot connect my Dell Inspiron 1300 through the NetworkManager "wired" connection, when I try to go direct to the cable modem. It fails to connect. If I connect the cable modem to my (linksys WRT54GS) wireless router, and then connect my laptop to a wired port in the router, it connects in seconds, successfully, This has happened to me 2 other times, when I tried to connect my laptop to a client's cable modem, because my client did not have a wireless router available, in their home. My wireless works fine. This has me perplexed. I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and NetworkManager Applet 0.8, I've tried some things to see what is going on, such as "ifconfig" "dhclient" as well as modifying the "Auto eth0" parameters and adding my laptop's MAC address, etc.

Dell :: Can't Find Driver To TrueMobile 1300 USB Adapter For Windows 7

Mar 26, 2012

I've just installed Windows 7 Ultimate on my PC, and wanted to add a Wi-Fi ability to it.

I have a Dell TrueMobile 1300 USB Adapter, so I tried to connect it to the desktop.

Windows didn't recognized it. I searched really hard across the internet - but couldn't find a proper driver to this device.

The only related thing I've found is a UTILITY from dell site (over here: [URL]

- but still - this installed only the Utility, not the driver. The adapter still stays "Unreconized" on my computer.

Dell :: Wired Connection Keeps Losing Internet In Windows 7 On Inspiron N5110

Jan 23, 2012

I reformatted my HDD (needed to do that anyway) and re-installed Windows 7 and all drivers (Chipset 1st) from my Dell CD after messing up a recovery test.

Everything seemed fine. But now, when I am surfing the Internet, I sometimes lose the connection. The icon in the Taskbar has a yellow exclamation point. (This does not happen in Slackware on the same machine, just in Windows 7.)

The first time this happened, I couldn't ping my router, so I checked all cables, cable modem, and router. But they were all fine and my other (really old desktop running Puppy Linux) was still connected fine and could surf to new web pages.

I did "ipconfig /release" and "ipconfig /renew" on the Dell in Windows 7 and the NIC got the correct IP address and gateway. Now I could ping the router, but I could not ping the Internet, which didn't make any sense, since the other computer was accessing the Internet just fine on the same router! (No IP address confilict exists, and gateway was correct on both machines.) I tried updating the driver, but no new drivers were found. This first time, the issue was resolved by rebooting Windows 7. I also unchecked the setting to turn off the NIC to save power. (I just checked the USB hubs per another post, and it's also unchecked.)

The second time this happened, "ipconfig /renew" failed! I set everything manually (including DNS servers), and on reboot, it still wasn't working. I did a complete shutdown of the computer and startup, now it works again.

So here I am looking for a new driver (64-bit, signed). Not only is there not a new driver...they don't even list the current driver! The only one listed is from March 2010, my driver is June 2011. Current driver is version 7.46.610.2011. Where is there a newer Realtek driver? And why are this things so buggy more than a year after 7 came out, especially if these are supposedly signed by Microsoft?

Dell :: WLAN Auto-configure Wireless Service Will Not Restart On Inspiron 1545

Feb 3, 2010

Wireless service on Dell laptop computer had been running fine for 4.5 months until underground Comcast cable failed, presumably due to freezing and thawing in cold New England soil.  All Comcast service went out, TV, Internet cable modem, etc.  Service was restored with above ground cable, and wireless service returned to other devices in household, but not the Dell laptop.  I am wondering if my wireless card itself was damaged in the event, as no software fixes I have tried have worked.  However, the device manager says the Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN Mini-card is working properly and the driver software for the service is up to date.

Some of the messages I have received from various command line and dialogue box attempted fixes:

Dell Wireless 1515 Adapter Device Not Found

There are currently no wireless adapters available and enabled

Cannot repair adapter because wireless service is not running

Windows could not start the WLAN AutoConfig service on Local Computer

Error 0xc00 ce508 : 0x00 ce508

There might be a problem with one or more network adapters on this computer

 When I did this

>Set Autoconfig Enabled=Yes Interface=”Wireless Network Adapter” <enter>

The response was this

>The Wireless Autoconfig Service (WLANSVC) is not running

When I was in administrator mode and ran SFC/SCANNOW the response was this Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them Details are included in the CBS.Log  WindirLogsCBSCBS.Log  For example C:WindowsLogsCBSCBS.Log Other command line responses:

Dell :: Inspiron N5010 Windows 7 Wireless Won't Connect

Aug 27, 2010

Recently got my Inspiron 5010N, only issue Im having is using the built in wireless hardware.  I can browse and find networks, I just cant connect to any.  My home network is now open and unencrypted (running G), but it still wont connect.  However, I installed a USB wireless adapter, and I can connect without issue.  So I dont think its a firewall, etc.  I think its something with the built in adapter...

After checking out the device manager, it looks like the laptops using a "DW1501 WLAN Half-Mini Card".  I went to the downloads page through dell.com to update my drivers, but Im still having issues.Im running Windows 7 64 bit.

Dell :: Inspiron N5110 Won't Use Wireless Connection

My pc is connected to the ethernet chord at home. I can go anywhere else and connect with a wireless connection but I can't in my own house. Every time I try I get an error the the network adapter isn't found. The trouble shooter can't even fix it. Everyone else in the house has no issues connecting with a wireless connection.The wireless connection has worked maybe twice for me since I purchased the laptop (May 2012). Since I am more comfortable at my desk it's no issue but there is a new printer that I can't connect to because I can't download the driver because I have to unplug my laptop to go in the other room to get to it.

Dell :: Inspiron 17E SE 7720 Wireless Connection To TV

When I went to connect it, I was able to get the TV to the point of asking me to Launch my Intel Wireless Display. I go to my programs but cannot find anything that mentions Wi-Di. I am not very tech savvy, so I don't know what to do. Is there a driver I can download? Am I missing something on my computer programs? Should I use another method and send the part back to Dell?

Dell :: Inspiron 1564 Loses Connection To Wireless

Jan 1, 2011

I have a new inspiron 1564 laptop that loses connection to my wireless internet within 10 minutes of booting up.  Then if I reboot it does not connect at all, can't even find the wireless router.

My works laptop and iPhone connect to the same router perfectly.I've seen the following post a few times from pudgyone and tried following it :Go to device manager(right click my computer, left click properties, left click hardware, left click device manager). Click on Network and then right click on your wireless adapter, left click properties, power management. Uncheck the box, allow computer to turn off this device to save power.

 In terms of the device manager I can't see a network option, there is network adapters and I've right clicked on Realtek PCIe FE family controller and unticked the box but this hasn't worked.

And with the settings, how do I get to the screen where I can change my router settings in windows 7?  I think the firmware is updated remotely by my service provider sky.

Wireless Connection On Dell Inspiron E1505 Laptop Does Not Work

Dec 20, 2011

I have a Dell Inspiron E1505 laptop that is about 6 years old running Windows XP. I have a Dell desktop with a cable modem and Linksys wireless router connected to the desktop to run my home wireless network.

Yesterday the wireless no longer worked on my laptop. I have a small wireless icon (looks like a computer monitor) with a yellow triangle with an explanation point inside. The messages are 'Signal Strength: Excellent' and 'Status: Limited or No Connectivity'. I have tried the following with no success:

- Rebooting the laptop (multiple timess)

- Resetting both the cable modem and router

- Turning off the desktop, resetting both the cable modem and router, and rebooting the desktop

- Took my laptop to work where a wireless connection is available and received the same messages

Thinking my wireless adapter / wireless card is bad I purchased a Linksys wireless USB adapter and just installed it. However it also cannot connect to my wireless network and issues a 'Open network Failure' error.

The Internet works fine from my desktop but is directly connected to the modem. I have not tried connecting the modem directly to my laptop to see if it would pick up the connection.

Per suggestions from other forums, I have tried fn/F2, but nothing happens. Is this a hardware problem with my wireless card, or is there something I am missing?
