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 :: Studio 1558 - Cannot Find Wireless Driver / Hardware

Jun 9, 2012

So I reformatted my studio 1558 laptop with windows  7 64 bit just to give it a fresh slate and when trying to set everything back up I can no longer connect wirelessly to the internet.

Dell :: Studio Laptop 1558 - Can't Connect To Wireless After Reinstalling Drivers

Aug 18, 2012

I have a Dell Studio Laptop 1558. I recently reinstalled Widows 7 and then the drivers. I'm pretty sure I installed them in the wrong order. So how do I go about fixing that? Like I said I can't connect to any wireless networks. The networks don't even show up(I live in an apartment complex so usually I have a whole bunch of networks listed). I can only use the Ethernet cord to get online. I know the wireless works because my roomate can connect to the wireless internet.

Dell :: Internet Extremely Slow On Studio 1558

Apr 16, 2013

A while ago I had to take my laptop in to have it formatted and reinstalled after I had picked up a virus. I use the internal modem behind the battery where you insert the card, if I insert an external dongle using the same sim card it seems to work just fine. Before the reinstall it was just fine, connection speed was great 3g etc, now it is slower than an old 56k dial up (no kidding) I have asked the company where I bought it, but they cant find the problem. Is there a setting or update etc that I need?

Dell :: Studio 1558 - Certain Websites Inaccessible Wirelessly

Dec 28, 2012

Studio 1558 using Windows 7 64-bit with Netgear DGN1000 router

I can access almost every website with no problem however two sites in particular time out unless I connect an ethernet cable between the laptop and the router. Then there is no problem, the site comes up immediately. The sites are and

I have tried different browsers but that does not make any difference. I borrowed a Toshiba laptop and connected to my wireless network and that had no problem connecting to either site wirelessly so there must be something wrong in my Dell laptop. One difference I noticed between the Toshiba and Dell laptops was in Wireless Network Connection Status the Connection Speed for the Dell is 65.0 Mbps whereas the Toshiba was 150.0 Mbps. I'm not sure what this means and whether it is relevant.

I have reduced the wireless MTU to 1400 from 1500 but still no connection on those sites. It is a nuisance to have to use the ethernet cable to visit two websites when the wireless works fine on every other site.

Dell :: Studio 1558 - Wi-Fi Feature Doesn't Function?

After re-installing windows 7, WIFI feature doesn't function. Under [Device Manger] I can see Network Controller has an exclamation mark next to it, I tried updating driver software manually on and by right-clicking [Network Controller], but neither worked. I used DBAN to wipe out my system. 

I also have other issues that I didn't experience until reinstalling includes: Synaptic touchpad (using fingers to magnify, scroll, etc.) and while I'm typing, the cursor jumps around sometime forward or backward if there is something written in the following lines.

Dell :: Studio 1558 - Bluetooth Suddenly Stops Working

Aug 28, 2012

I have a dell studio 1558 laptop and it's got this Bluetooth problem. I use BT to connect to Internet through my phone as a modem. But sometimes it suddenly stops working and the BT icon vanishes from the taskbar. Every attempt to restart it by Wireless switch, or by restarting BT service/process fails. (this does not happen with WiFi, or any other connection though). The only way I get back Bluetooth ON again is if I put the system to sleep, or I shut down and Turn On (Hibernate, Restart, Log off doesn't work). And this happens more frequently while multitasking than normal use.

I am using Windows 7 Home premium (service pack 0).I have the latest Bluetooth module installed, latest system BIOS installed as available in the dell website.

Dell Studio 1555 Recognizes Wireless Connection But Won't Connect

Apr 11, 2011

I have a Dell Studio 1555 and normally my wireless connection works perfectly. It runs on Vista and I bought it in August 2009. Just recently I went to a friends house, and my wireless detected their router, but where normally it shows connection signal bars, it showed a red 'X' and wouldn't allow me to connect. It wasn't their router because their wireless on their computers were connecting to it fine. Then I went back to my house, my wireless was working fine, and connected automatically right away. The next weekend I went to my parents' house, where I have brought my computer and was able to connect to their wireless countless times in the past, did the same exact thing as when I was at my friends' house. Normally it will detect their router by their name because that is what they have it set at, but now it can only detect it as linksys. And it will not connect. I have no idea what to do because as soon as I go back to my house, my computer is able to connect to my wireless

Dell :: Studio Xps435MT - DSL Internet Connection Failed

Dec 8, 2012

I have a Studio  Xps435MT connected to the internet through a 2Wire DSL modum using an ethernet cable. Installed a new hard drive last week after drive failure, Reinstalled Dell drivers and utilities using disc, then operating system, software, updated drivers, installed SP2.

Internet connection worked fine since then. Yesterday and from then on, Windows and modum will not recognize network adapters so not internet availability although device manager shows them working. Modum does work with my laptop so I can access internet through that.

Network and sharing shows unidentified network and limited connectivity IPv4 and 6, on IPv4 no default gateway or DNS server identified, no IPv6 gateway. Tried reinstalling modum but shows no network adapters identified.

Windows system info shows that intel 82567LF 2GB connection installed and reset today, default IP gateway not available.

Dell Studio 1557 Running Windows 7 - Slow / Down Internet Connection?

Nov 3, 2011

I have a dell studio 1557 running windows 7. I live in my own apartment with roommates in college, and i've been having some very bad issues with slow internet or constant down time. Here are some key points:

- I have Charter internet.

- My 2 other roommates have NO ISSUES.

- My laptop works in my family's house. They have Comcast. I went on vacation a week ago and there were no issues on the hotel internet. No issues from the school's internet.

- I have been using my android phone as a tether because the internet is more stable. It's slow, but consistent for the most part. This is extra frustrating because I shouldnt have slow internet. And I sure as hell shouldnt be paying for internet I can't even enjoy.

- Charter has replaced 2 routers. Both are brand new. They are net gear. Charter is clueless to my problem.

- I have reinstalled windows. Dell told me to try safe mode. I noticed NO ISSUES WITH STANDARD BROWSING IN SAFE MODE. This leads me to believe it is a software issue.

- The connection is non-existent when coming out of hibernation or rebooting. In the morning, i have to boot up, make my coffee, and only then will it give me access to the internet. Otherwise, page timeouts. It can take up to 10 minutes for the internet to work.

- Youtube and general multitasking is very bad. Slower connection than ever, page timeouts, and I often need to wait for a video/music to buffer before I begin enjoying it.

My laptop has been this way for upwards of 6 months.

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 :: Wireless WLAN On Studio XPS 16 Won't Enable?

May 22, 2010

 I have a Dell Studio XPS 16 laptop. I'm very annoyed by how my wireless WLAN card won't turn on.

I've tried pressing the WLAN enable key above the keypad next to the other media keys and it won't show it as being enabled.

I've tried the Fn+F2 combination and it doesn't seem to do anything. It keeps saying that the WLAN card is still not enabled!

I've tried rebooting my laptop as well and it seems to acknowledge the existance of the card

Dell Studio Xps 16 - Wireless Internet Stopped Working?

I got the computer in 09 with windows vista and the internet worked correctly. i upgraded to windows 7 in 2010 or 11 and the wireless was still working.

Dell :: Studio 17 - DW 1510 Wireless-N Not Detecting 5 GHZ Channel

Jul 8, 2010

I just bought a Studio 17 (1749). Got it all configured. It is a beauty.    It has the DW 1501 Wireless-N WLAN Half-Mini Card. 

The computer detects the 2.4 GHZ network seamlessly.  It is unable to detect the 5 GHZ network.

I have a NETGEAR RangeMax Dual Band Wireless-N Router.

 I have no problems connecting to this router with a Studio 15 laptop that I bought in December 2009.  The Studio 15 can detect both the 2.4 and 5 GHZ seamlessly.   I also have no problems connecting at 270 MB with a work Lenovo XP laptop with a Netgear Wireless-N USB stick.

Dell :: Studio XPS 1647 / Wireless Not Working After HDD Installation?

Feb 18, 2013

My hard drive recently failed, and I installed a new hdd in my Studio XPS 1647.  Everything seems to be working like a charm... except the wireless.  I'm running Windows 7 64Bit, for your reference.   I went to the Dell driver site, and ignorant, originally downloaded everything that seemed to be relevant concerning the networking drivers.  When that didn't work, I came upon an article that gave the correct order of driver installations.  I re-installed in that order, albeit using the download manager.  No luck.  I've run Dell Diagnostics, and the only problem it sees is USB status (but USB is working great... I've printed and access my external hd without problem)... no problems showing with networking.  Under the device manager, Base System Device (2), Intel Centrino Advanced-N WiMax6250 and Network Controller all have (!) marks.  I actually un-installed all of those, and re-installed the network drives for a 3rd time.  Still no go.

Dell :: Studio XPS 1340 - Turn On Wireless Capability

Mar 28, 2009

I have a Studio XPS 1340. Running Vista. Sat evening I was on the net, and had left the machine for a while. I refreshed a page using F5 after 10 mins inactivity, and the WIFI had dropped. I have the Dell Wireless 1515 Wireless N adaptor. I cannot find any wireless networks, and the error message I get is to "Turn on wireless capability".

On the Studio XPS 13 there is no wireless switch, to turn on/off the wireless. I've tried to turn on the wireless using Fn + F2, and I have also unchecked the "allow computer to turn off this device to save power." box. rebooted any further suggestions?  I've disabled and enabled the wireless network card a couple of times, drivers seem to be working correctly. when I try to update the drivers I'm told they are the most up to date drivers available.

Might this be McAfee related? Have I inadvertently turned off the wireless using a shortcut key by accident?

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.
