I had to system restore my laptop today and now my laptop wont connect to my wireless router. Is there a specific driver i need to install on the dell disc that come with it ? if not what all do i do ? i can only connect through wired connection
My laptop is Latitude E6500 and I have a SIM card from a local 3G operator (Vodafone). I need to define the accessories and wireless cards necessary to operate mobile Internet and GPS on the laptop. And where I can purchase such accessories.
I can't turn on the Wifi switch (Fn + F2) and then I realized its possible it doesn't have a driver so I downloaded the Broadcom 570x Gigabit Integrated Controller so far and its still not working. Here is the what is on my device manager.
Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600] (C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp. C:Documents and Settingsuser>IPCONFIG/ALL
I have a brand-new Dell Latitude E5420 laptop with Windows 7 (64-bit) on it and it turns out that its wireless is not working. I turned on the physical switch and the little blue antenna lit up for a few seconds and then went off. When I look in the device manager it only shows these:I tried downloading the right drivers from DELL's site (their automated system claims that I need A02 for my WLAN 1530 Half Minicard) - but they wouldn't install, giving me the error log reproduced below[CODE]
I did a custom reinstall on my dell latitude e5420 laptop using dell windows 7professional 64bit sp1dvd and now my wireless network is not working. I tried turning the switch on and off, restarted my laptop, and I also went to dell suport and downloaded all the recomended drivers and it still doesnt work.
I went to device manager and noticed that under "other devices" there is a yellow exclamation mark on the network controller.
I cannot utilize my Ethernet connection when my Dell Latitude D630 is connected to a docking station. I have tried this on two different docking stations. I also have another Dell laptop that I have used in the one of the same docking stations and the ethernet connection is fine. I'm looking for assistance to troubleshoot this (even just determining if I can replace the connector and how I determine what type I need)
I haven't installed anything new lately, nothing that would affect the wireless, but my wireless suddenly stopped working. My wireless has been working successfully for the past 2 years no problems till now. I have a Dell Latitude E6410 my computer is running Windows 7 32bit. When I open up the DW WLAN Card Utility it says "There are currently no wireless adapters available and enabled. Please enable any available wireless adapters before accessing this configuration utility. I tried reinstalling drivers for the wireless but my computer says "no compatible hardware found".
Also the under the wireless adapters section of Device Manager there isn't an adapter for wireless, but there is an unknown device.
Here's a View at my Device Manager [URL]
I've tried to use computer restart magic but no luck there.
Also, my computer is running on a university network. My roommate's wireless is working fine. Also I've already system restored to a point where I know it was working, no luck...
I have a recently rebuilt D600 running XP Prof XP3 full patched. The machine was a clean build on a new disk about 2 months ago and all has been working well (excepting the Fujitsu HDD which seems to be going bad as I type, but that's a different issue!).i was offer via Microsoft Update: "Dell driver update for Dell TrueMobile 1300 WLAN Mini-PCI Card" 2 days ago (mid August 2009). This is a Dell supplied update distributed via MS. Also offered (and installed) at the same time was "Darfon - Other Hardware - Bluetooth Devices". Since installing these (and the installs reporting as completing correctly) I keep getting:Dell Wireless WLAN Card Wireless Network Controller encountered a problem and needed to close.and Dell Wireless WLAN Card Wireless Network Controller has encountered a problem and needs to close.rror dialogues. These pop up every 30 seconds or so and seem to be related to the Dell TrueMobile 1300 update.Looking in the Windows directory there is no uninstall directory for this update unlike the MS updates. So I now either need to:get the updates to work properly Remove the updates and get back to a working condition if you wonder why I applied the updates...why repair something that's already working...I have had Bluetooth sporadic connection issues with this laptop with a BT GPS unit. The same BT GPS unit works perfectly on a D610 but on this D600 after initial connection there can be repeated connection loss requring the BT GPS unit to be moved around, after which BT connection is re-established only to fail a while later. As the same GPS works without problem with the D610 my presumption has been the issue is a BT stack issue on the D600 BT implementation.
I got a Latitude E4310 recently, which had a dead HDD. I had to put my own drive into it and load my own copy of Windows 7 Pro onto it. Everything works, except wifi. I have tried every driver available for this model, but they just say something along the lines of the laptop not having compatible hardware. And yes, the switch on the side is on, and I have tried it in either position. In device manager, I see nothing along the lines of 'wireless card'.I even tried putting in my own mini-pci-e wifi card, an intel wifi link 5100, fully installing all drivers and software. That didn't work either - it picked it up and all the intel drivers installed but in device manager it said it 'couldn't start'.Does this model come standard with wifi? Do I have to go and buy a special dell wifi card and install that?I also have 2 Latitude E4300 laptops which I am about to put new HDDs into and set up, which I believe will have the same issue.
I have a Dell Latitude D610 and my problem is that the wifi light won't come on. I've done the Fn+F2 thing and all that is enabled is bluetooth. I've gone to dell's site and updated drivers and done basically everything I've seen others do on forums. What's interesting is that once in awhile, my wifi light comes on and my wifi will work for maybe 30 seconds and then it disappears. When i go to device manager, my broadcom 802.11g adapter sometimes shows up but usually it isn't there. So it's not there with a yellow exclamation mark over it; when it is on there it's fine but it's hardly there ever. I've even removed the wireless card and reconnected it to see if it'd work but no luck.
I'm having a problem using this Dell Latitude. It's always having these connection fits where it randomly disconnects & then reconnects to our wireless internet. I'm always seeing the internet icon in the toolbar either on "Acquiring network address" or "Not connected", and when the internet is working, the icon doesn't even show up in the toolbar. This keeps on stopping me from doing stuff like posting in forums (I was lucky to be able to post this :P), logging into my email, etc. This problem, however, never existed on the Compaq, so I know it's not the signal. Is there any way to keep it from disconnecting constantly?
I just bought a Dell Latitude D620, Win. XP, wireless and have been getting "limited or no connectivity" message when trying to connect wirelessly. Belkin G router. I cannot download anything cause I cannot get connected.
I have a DELL Latitude 630 running Windows Vista. I checked into a hotel and just cannot find the wifi network on this laptop..IT is a named network and yet all i see is an unnamed network on my list of networks found. My blackberry device can easily locate the network..but the laptop simply refuses. I have tried restarting, playing around with the advanced propoerties of the wifi adapter but all in vain. I can use the office wifi ont he same laptop without any issue..but not in my hotel.
I finally moved on from my Dell Latitude, I purchased a Lenovo today.Just set up Windows 7 on it, but I am having a real problem...I have looked everywhere on the Internet for a fix and can't seem to find it.I am trying to connect to my home network, belkin54g, but am being told "No Internet access." Under Device Manager, I have two network adapters listed, a Broadcom 802.11n Network Adapter and a Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller. My network is set up as such...My dad's Mac has the router/modem wired to it, and every other computer connects wirelessly. MY connection is set up as a Windows 7 "Home" network. When hovering over the wireless icon thing at the bottom right of the screen, it gives the network name in bold, then No Internet access in italics right below. I am connected to the home network for sure though, because when I view devices on this network, I see my brothers laptop listed. Most recently I tried to do a Winsock reset from the Command Prompt, but it didn't work.
I have a Dell laptop that I use at my Work Location as well as at my home.
The problem is, the laptop connects to the Wi Fi available at my work location without any troubles. But when I come back home and try to connect to Wi Fi available at my home location, it does not get connected. If I connect the direct cable from my modem, then it gets connected but it does not connect wirelessly through Wi Fi router.
The Ethernet card installed on my laptop is : DW1520 Wireless-N WLAN Half-Mini Card
Purchased 6 new e6510 latitudes and were running into a fluke on a few of them.
When the users travel between locations, they sometimes find when they turn the laptops back on that the ethernet connection is disabled. Its not the wi fi switched off, but the actual ethernet connection in control panel is disabled.
I can't turn on the bluetooth on my laptop. Laptop Details - Dell Latitude E5510. - Windows 7 32-bit.
Problems - The bluetooth light is not lit (WiFi is lit). - The bluetooth icon is not in the system tray. - There are no settings in 'Control Panel' for bluetooth. - There are no drivers in 'Device Manager' for bluetooth.
Troubleshooting Already Attempted - Ensured that bluetooth was enabled in the BIOS. - Updated BIOS to version A11. - Downloaded and attempted to install drivers (R285455.exe, R260222.exe, R296919.exe). When I try to run R260222.exe, it tells me that it is incompatible. When I run the other two drivers, it extracts the items but then asks me to "activate bluetooth using wireless switch". The switch is already on but no light appears for the bluetooth symbol. It's a catch 22! - Ensured that the 'Bluetooth Support Service' was started.
