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

Oct 10, 2012

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. 

OS: Windows 7 Home Premeium

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 :: 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 LAN Card Stops Working

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 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.

I have a Dell Studio 1737 running Windows 7 64 bit. I turned it on today and it automatically connected to my home network as usual and when I hover over the network icon it says there is Internet Access but when I open Firefox it can not connect to any websites.

Linksys Cable / DSL :: WAG120N WPS Function Doesn't Work

Jul 30, 2011

I have noticed that on my WAG120N the WPS function doesn't work as it should ( all). I tried connecting a blackberry, a playstation3 and 2 different laptops using the WPS option (button or PIN, doesn't matter) and the devices would simply not talk to each other. I can understand problems with the PS3 but the blackberry and the laptops were (and still are) able to connect using WPS on my previous router - WAG54G2. Pairing of the devices by supplying a password works fine, this is a problem only with the WPS functionality. My firmware is V1.00.16.

Dell :: XPS 15 L502x - Cannot Find Bluetooth Function

Mar 24, 2012

I recently bought an XPS 15 L502x and I cannot find the bluetooth function on it. Looked everywhere in the device manager and Controll Pannel. Does it mean it doesn't come as standard and you have to upgrade it while choosing your components? I hope niot because it sounds a bit ridiciulous to have a top range model with core i7 and 1080p screen and no bluetooth which is as basic to me as wifi or speakers.

Then to be ensured I restarted the system and my laptop got connected to WiFi. When I moved bit far away from WiFi again the same issue I am not able to connect to.

Dell :: Studio XPS 16 Bluetooth Not Working

Nov 10, 2009

I just received my XPS 16 and I was informed that it had a built in Bluetooth. I purchased a bluetooth mouse and tried to use it, but I am unable to get the computer to turn on the Bluetooth device. Had Dell support look at it, but the guy passed me off to someone else. So I still do not have this working. Is there an updated driver required to get this Bluetooth working.

Dell :: Wi-Fi Router For Studio 1749?

Mar 12, 2013

WiFi issues with his Dell Studio 1749. He has a Siemens SE587 ADSL modem/router which supports Mixed, B_only, G_only WiFi modes.  The laptop has a Dell wireless 1397 WLAN mini-card  which supports Loose 11h, Loose 11h+d, and Strict 11h WiFi modes. No matter what combination of modes I configure in the router and the laptop the wireless connection on the laptop only ever comes up as 1MBps or 2MBps (full strength signal, laptop right next to router). By contrast my ageing Dell Vostro 1700 always connects to the same router at 54MBps.

So I'm guessing that there is some incompabitility between the router and the laptop.  We're happy to replace the router, especially as recently the ADSL side of it appears to have gone a bit flaky.  I've scoured the 'net and cannot find any router which claims to support 802.11h, so (a) what should I buy and (b) how can I be sure it will work at a sensible speed with this laptop given that the one we currently have won't?

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
