I re-installed the drivers, but my wirless card does not work,
The Dell wirless program states the radio is disabled press Fn-F2 to activate it
Fn-F2 has no effect.
I have a dell Inspiron 8000. The computer will not detect the onboard ethernet jack? It does not show up in the devices list. The lights for activity will not come up when I plug an ehternet cable in to it either..View 7 Replies View Related
I had turned my computer on and I hadn't been on it in a week or 2 because for some reason my computers WiFi connector was not turning on in the back. Usually, if the wifi is turned on, there is a green light flashing in the back which tells me it is picking up or searching for a signal. And once I turned it on, it had started working again. So I played on it a bit and got off. But when I went to turn it on today, it wont pick up any signals. My router is working perfectly fine since I'm typing this on my iPad.View 1 Replies View Related
How to put a wireless card on dell inspiron 7500View 2 Replies View Related
My Inspiron 1545 has a 1397 Wireless G card. I want to up it to a Wireless N card. I have seen references to a Wireless N 1501, 1503, 1510, 1515 & 1520, but none of these are mentioned as being compatible with a 1545.View 3 Replies View Related
I have a Dell Inspiron 14R running Windows 7 64 bit. I have had my PC from this past November; about 7 months.
I was using my PC, and suddenly, I started to experience wireless problems. I was unable to get onto the internet. Other devices on my wireless network are able to log on to our network, although that is irrelevant because my radio wasn't picking up anything at all, when it always had from that same location. The connection worked fine using an ethernet cable. After the problem occurred, my Targus Bluetooth mouse also stopped working. This is what I have tried:
Going into Network and Sharing Center, disabling my network adapter, and then enabling it again. This usually does the trick. After doing it over 5 times, it never worked.
Doing a simple system restore. I attempted restoring 3 different times to an update within the last week, each of which failed (probably another issue altogether).
Re-installing my WLAN CARD Driver, and then restarting. This didn't solve the problem. Checking the Device Manager. It reported that the wireless card was running properly.Using the DW WLAN CARD Utility. It says under the Link Status tab, after Connection Status, Radio Disabled. I tried right-clicking the icon in my Notification Area, and then clicking Enable Radio. It then shows an alert saying "The WLAN card is still disabled. Use the wireless switch or hotkey to enable it." Pressing Fn + F2, which is also supposed to enable the radio, did nothing, with no action or sign whatsoever from Windows. I also tried running tests under the Diagnostics tab. All hardware tests passed, with the Connection test giving me this alert again: "The WLAN card is still disabled. Use the wireless switch or hotkey to enable it," and then failing. The same thing happened when running the CCX Client diagnostics.
Inspiron N5050.Fresh install Win 7 sp1 home premium.I have the Dell drivers disc.when I go through the list of drivers to install, there is one listed for the wireless card for this computer, but it does not have the 'tick' which says the device has been detected.i try to install that driver anyway and I am asked to "Activate Bluetooth Using Wireless Switch". I went here [URL] and then did a search for DW1702, which is the card listed on my customer invoice. From that search I am taken here [URL] which lists 3 kinds of drivers: A01, A02 and A03. I have tried all three. A01 and A03 give up quite quickly. With the A02 the InstallShield Wizard starts up and most of the installation seems to take place and then it gives up. Windows tells me the driver was not installed properly.Whenever there is a problem over drivers, Dell tells us to install the Notebook System Software. There is no NSS on my drivers disc. (It does not come up on the list of drivers to install when the disc is first inserted and is not listed under 'System Utilities'.) Since I can't connect to the internet without at least an ethernet driver installed, how am I supposed to install the NSS first? In any case when I enter my service tag on here or do a search for the N5050, I am given 11 filtered results and 33 'all related drivers' but no NSS.I was charged extra for the drivers disc and it doesn't have what I want. The laptop without a wireless card is useless to me.View 30 Replies View Related
My cat was laying on my computer and found the key combo to turn off my wireless card! There is no switch on the front or side and I can't find the combo anywhere in the info on my computer. It is an Inspiron 1545.View 1 Replies View Related
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.
I bought a netgear router and usb card for my B120. If I get the wireless card for the B120 can I still use the router I already have for this? Where do I find the correct Express Card for my laptop? I have searched the dell site for the part but cant find it.View 8 Replies View Related
I have a Inspiron 1721 with windows 7 x64. I want to upgrade my wifi card in this laptop for working with my 300 mbps N router.
I have found a wifi card Intel wifi link 4965AGN MM2, but i can't install it. It has something to do with the fact that is Toshiba branded?With drivers from Intel after some time the laptop goes black screen and i have to restart it.
I recently received the blue screen of death on my labtop so I used the system restore cd and wiped the entire hard drive clean. Afterwards I knew to extract the drivers from the drivers and utilities cd. I extraced the wlan card since this is what has been controlling my wireless at school and everywhere else. The little tower icon doesn't appear in my task box on the bottom of the screen nor is it anywhere where I can enable it. The only place I see the driver is in the add/remove folder in the control panel. Furthermore the blue light doesn't appear when I flip the switch to the on position.View 3 Replies View Related
I recently re-installed Windows 7 Ultimate x64 on my DELL INSPIRON 1546 and everything seems to work fine, except the wi-fi. It won't search for any wireless devices (including the router I have at home), showing "Not connected. No connections available". The wi-fi hotkey is not working.
When checking the Device Manager, it shows me that no Network Controller driver was found. As I could not get the driver online, I downloaded it from Dell website via my friends PC and got it into my PC via USB stick. Here comes the most interesting part...
When I try to install the driver, it says that it is not compatible with my system.
I recently bought a new Dell Inspiron 7600 pc running on windows 7 home premium and to enable access to our wireless internet I installed a Realtek 8185 wireless pci adaptor. It has worked fine (although not without the occasional blip) but recently it has stopped working. I could connect to our wireless network but connection came with a small exclamation mark on the wireless connection icon in the system tray. I tried reinstalling the most up to date drivers I could find on the realtek download website and this has removed the problem of the exclamation mark with the wireless connection claiming it now has internet access. However the internet is now so slow (vastly slower than before these problems began) I get timed out errors whenever I try to access any web pages. I have ruled out the router being an issue as my two housemates' computers are working just fine.View 1 Replies View Related
I got DELL inspiron 1012 with built-in mini wireless card in windows 7 starter. The laptop could detect the card and I could connect to the internet until when I downgraded to windows XP service pack 3, and then it could not detect the card anymore. I downloaded all of the driver in DELL support site and installed them to the laptop but it sitll could not "see" the card. I checked in the Device Manager and did not see the folder "Network Adapter" at all.View 3 Replies View Related
I have Dell Inspiron 8600 Laptop. I just wiped and reinstalled the xp. But I don't have the drivers. XP w/ SP 2 won't pick up the integrated 10/100 network card and modem.
I went to above link to download the driver from dell but I don't know which one to download. There are different kinds and all I know about my card is it's "integrated 10/100 network card and modem". But I don't see this specific driver. For the wirelss card, I know exactly what it is and it works fine.(Intel (R) Pro/Wireless 2100 LAN miniPCI Adapter) But not the integrated 10/100 Port.
I recently purchased a D Link Xtreme Dir-655 N Router and would like to upgrade the wireless card on my Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop to take full advantage of the N router. Which N wireless card is available that is compatible with my laptop? Currently the laptop has the half mini-card 5100 which i dont believe its a N wireless card.View 4 Replies View Related
So I just got this Linksys E1500 wireless N router in hopes that I would get a better signal within my room as opposed to my older router. Unfortunately, nothing has changed, in fact I think I'm getting weaker signals. My previous router was a D-Link WBR-2310. I went to speed test.net and tested 3 variables. My wifi on my desktop in my room, my wifi when right next to a router on my laptop, and my wifi using my neighbors wifi in my room.
What is the point of this new wireless N router, when it can't beat a G router older model in reach? And why does is have a 0.50 mb d/l speed but a 3.6 upload speed?
I have a wireless card that causes my Inspiron 5100 to lock up about once a day. I have tried 3 different types of cards (Netgear, Microsoft, Dell) all with the same result. I have a laptop cooler because I thought that the heat might be causing the problem - not the case. If I leave the wireless card out the lockup does not happen.
On a side note...I have tried to update the BIOS on my computer. When I download what seems to be the appropriate file, it tells me that I don't have the appropriate file.
I'm on an Inspiron 1420 laptop running Windows Vista.
I need to know which driver I need for my Dell 1390 Wireless Card because it stops working while I'm watching Netflix.
In case you all need them, here are a few of my system specs:
Processor: Intel Core 2 duo T7300 @ 2.00 GHz
Memory (RAM): 2.00 GB
Graphics Card (?): Mobile Intel 965 Express Chipset Family
I recently formatted my dell Inspiron N5110 (windows 7 Intel 7i) laptop and now the pc doesn’t recognize the network card. I’ve installed the recommended driver update from dell support by using my service tag (35ftsp1), but still it doesn’t recognize the wireless card or the Ethernet cable when plugged in.View 1 Replies View Related
I bought a brand-new Inspiron 15R laptop from Dell and the DW1510 Wireless N WI-FI card will only connect at a maximum of 72mbps. I've tried the laptop with two different N certified routers a (D-Link and Belkin). Routers are configured correctly for N speed and within 10 inches of the laptop.
The speed I am experiencing is nowhere near the 300mbps connection speed possible.
I've just updated the WiFi mini card in my Inspiron 1545. It works great.....but, I have to download the driver every time I start the laptop.View 4 Replies View Related
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?View 5 Replies View Related
I got an inspiron 700m laptop as a hammydown from my sister. It had all sorts of problems, so I had to order a new copy of windows XP and install that. I've been trying to connect to the wireless network at my college, but the instructions they give say to go to network connections and start by clicking the "wireless connection" icon. There is no such icon. I've tried all sorts of different drivers from dell for this model and none of them seem to do the trick. I know i have a wireless card becuase I've opened a little panel on hte bottom of the computer and seen it myself.View 14 Replies View Related

I have an Inspiron 8600 with a Dell wireless 1350 WLAN mini card. It operated perfectly with a Belkin 54G router but when we changed to a Plusnet Thomson Gateway router I started to lose the signal for about 20 seconds every few minutes. I complained to Plusnet who replaced the router. I have never been able to connect wirelessly since installing this piece of junk. After trying for three solid days I contacted a technician at Plusnet who tried all the usual tricks, even taking over full control of my laptop, without success. He is going to contact Thomson to see if there are any compatibility problems with the Dell 1350 adapter as there are known ones with other Dell adapters.
I suggest Plusnet should not supply this router and further reduce their charges so that customers could supply their own trusted versions.
I have an Inspiron E1705 and my wireless card/adapter takes about 3 minutes to load each log in. I called Dell, and they couldn't find out what was wrong. We tried things from internet settings, to shutting off all the start ups in MS Config. I've had this problem for a very long time. Windows will start up, and it seems like there is a 3 minute wait period of my computer doing nothing, and then finally, the wireless loads in my System Tray.View 14 Replies View Related
I've recently added a Dell Inspiron 620 to my home network. Since it was close enough to hardware to my U-Verse router, I moved my Dell Wireless WLAN 1502 Half Mini-Card to my older XPS400. What I cannot find out is whether or not there is an XP driver for this card.View 1 Replies View Related

I have an Inspiron 570 desktop that has worked fine for at least 6 months since the warranty expired...we had a power surge last week while I was gone and when I returned I was unable to get the wired network to work. I ran the diagnostics and it said that my cable was not plugged in...it was. I rebooted, reseated cables, etc. with no luck. I reset the cable modem and router, reseated cables, rebooted, etc with no luck. I plugged the cable into a laptop and it worked fine.
The diagnostics tools on the desktop indicate there are no issues with the network adapter and that it is allegedly working fine. What I have noticed is that the light indicators on the RJ45 jack on the back are steady state yellow and orange, regardless of whether there is a cable plugged into it.
For some reason my card stopped working, I tried reinstalling the driver, fn + f2 (to activate my card from my keyboard), and a few others basic thing, nothing is showing up, where I am with other PC I can see at least 5 networks. my PC gets nothing,im running vista 32bitintel pro wireless 3945ABGdell inspiron laptop 6400I also tried a fixit microsoft tool for network, didnt work,Im on the net now using wired cable from my router, and its ok but I need my wireless on the road------------I have uninstalled reinstalled the driverI did a fresh format last weekI cant reset TCP IP.

I own an Inspiron n5110 laptop(Dell) with an Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N 1030 wireless card. I use Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. I constantly drop internet connection, mainly when downloading and playing games. In the right bottom corner, where my wireless connection signal strenght is showed, I get an yellow triangle with '!' mark in it saying 'Limited access'. When troubleshooting, the only way to get an internet connection again, I get an message 'The default gateway is not available' and it says that it's fixed. after awhile I lose internet connection again and everything repeats. I figured out that it's not from my router or Internet Service Provider. I saw in the forums the option to exchange this card for the 6230 upgraded version but that is not a variant for me because in my country the technicians can at very damage the laptop.View 7 Replies View Related

If I install one matched pair, the wireless network is found and will connect to the network. If I install all four, the network is not found and the wireless will not connect. The network card is Netgear G PCI adapter 54MBTS 2.4GHz.
