Dell Wireless WLAN Controller Closed And Stopped Working

Jan 9, 2011

I have a Dell Studio 1537 running on Windows Vista? my computer stopped being able to connect to the internet a few days ago and a "Dell Wireless WLAN Controller closed and stopped working" (or something along those lines) box would keep on popping up. I did some reading around on the internet and decided that maybe I needed to update the "drivers" for it so I went to the Dell website and downloaded the most recent version for my Dell Wireless 1510 WLAN mini card...that didn't seem to work any after I installed it. So I went ahead and uninstalled it (I assume I must have uninstalled something I shouldn't have) and now I'm stuck at the same problem. I can't connect to the internet!In Network Connections, it continually says that "Windows cannot find any networks". In Device Manager, under Network Adapters, it doesn't list the card there, although it lists "Broadcom Netlink (TM) Gigabit Ethernet". And from some suggestions I found on the net, I tried ipconfig/all in the comand promt and it says "media disconnected".

Dell :: Inspiron 1520 - 1390 WLAN Card Wireless Network Controller Stopped Working And Closed

Feb 6, 2010

I regularly get this message (but not everytime) when I start up Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit.

"Dell Wireless WLAN Card Wireless Network Controller stopped working and was closed.a problem caused the application to stop working correctly. Windows will notify you if a solution is available."

 Then I get this following message:"Solution Found: Address a problem with your WLAN card.Your WLAN card has stopped working properly. This is a network adapter that allows your computer to connect to a wireless network. To find out if an updated version of your WLAN card is available, contact your device or computer manufacturer."The strange thing is even though I get this message I am still able to connect to the internet via a wireless network. So there is no problem as such it is just annoying to keep getting this message when Windows starts up.I have checked on the DELL Support website and I do have the most up-to-date driver already (Or I think I do).

The message refers to my:

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 :: 1525 Wireless Tray Applet Has Stopped Working

Nov 18, 2008

I have a inspiron 1525 and 9 times out of 10 when I start up the computer I get the message "Dell wireless WLAN card wireless network tray applet has stopped working".  When this happens I can still get on the internet.  But I can't scroll the screen using the touchpad.  Dell installed a new touchpad and that worked for about one day.  I hooked up with them online twice and one tech updated the touchpad driver and another said it was my avast software that causes the problem, I say no way, because it worked for 6 months before this problem started.

Dell :: Inspiron 1521 - DW WLAN Network Controller Using More CPU

Jun 13, 2013

I have got this new Dell inspiron 1521 with windows 8 and I am facing some weird problem with its DW WLAN NETWORK CONTROLLER.

it uses more of cpu resources (as seen from task manager) and causes the active window to become non active.

this makes it frustrating to work, means I am typing some username or anything in IE or Chrome or anywhere else and it suddenly becomes non active window (non selected as if some thing else is selected) and again becomes active in few seconds or I have to click anywhere in the window to make it active.

some times a pop up opens that "DW WLAN NETWORK CONTROLLER HAS STOPPED WORKING" send this information to microsoft.

This happens randomly and I'm not able to figure out when this thing occur, means I'm running on battery or power supply.

I have not used wifi on this laptop and I don't have wifi modem. I always use internet through ethernet cable.

One more thing whenever this problem occurs, I stop all the process related to WLAN in task manager and the problem of active-non active window and popup message disappears.

I have tried to uninstall and install the network adapter. also tried latest drivers from dell website.

Dell :: Latitude E6410 - DW WLAN Card Not Working - Wireless Adapter Doesn't Exit?

Mar 10, 2012

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...

Dell :: Bluetooth 365 On Inspiron 1564 Stopped Working

Oct 2, 2010

My bluetooth 365 suddenly stopped working, (Inspiron 1564, windows 7 home premium). I have the latest driver (, and now, when i try to install it again it asks me to turn the BT on, although it is on (enabled in BIOS). When I check the device manager under bluetooth radios, it's called "Generic Bluetooth Adapter" and it's status is "This device cannot start (code 10)". The bluetooth icon doesn't appear in the task bar nor in control panel anymore.

The bluetooth services @ administrative tools are "started" and "automatic".

I had this problem twice before, fixed it using system restore and by installing "windows mobile device center". These solutions are not working now..

Dell :: Inspiron 15r Special Edition Wireless Connectivity Drops When Lid Closed?

Nov 5, 2012

Quick Specs:- Windows 7 64 bit Home Premium

- Wireless Card: Intel Centrino Wireless N 2230

Issue: Whenever I close my lid, my wireless connectivity drops by around 80+%. When using, I normarlly download at 5 megabits/s and upload at 1, but with my lid closed, I download at less then 0.4 and upload surprisingly at 0.8. My downloads and torrents basically grind to a halt, multiplayer gaming becomes difficult and websites/youtube/videos take much longer to load. I can check all these figures as I'm using an external monitor.I have tried a lot of things to improve connectivity including setting everything to high performance, disabling power saving modes, setting roaming to aggressive/high and updating drivers.

Dell :: D820 - 1390 WLAN Mini Card Not Working

Feb 2, 2012

I recently re-installed the driver for the 1390 WLAN Mini Card after not having wireless for a few years, and have a few problems.  In the Windows XP Home Network Connections folder, the  Wireless Network Connection Icon shows, "Acquiring Network Address", but never gets past that.  I ran a diagnostic in the "Dell Wireless WLAN Card Utility" and the card passed all the tests, even though with the card switch in the on position the LED doesn't light (??) 

When I right click on the Wireless Network Connection Icon and choose, "Status", in the "General" tab I can see that the card is sending out packets, but none are being received.  In the "Support" tab under "connection status"  the following appears:  "Address Type":  Invalid IP Address, "IP Address":, "Subnet Mask":, "Default Gateway": (nothing listed).

Background:  I have a Desktop (no brand) and the Dell D820 connected with a Westell Modem and a D-Link WBR-1310 Router.  Both computers work great connected to the Router with a cable.  Both computers are running Windows XP Home.

The only thing I can think of (and I'm remembering this from 2007 when I purchased the Laptop and had a wireless set up for a short while), is that the Modem and Router were bridged, which is not the case now.  Do they need to be bridged for the wireless connection to work?  Is it not necessary anymore and something called "Double Netting" or something like that is used...

WLAN Light Stopped Lighting Up On Wireless Router?

May 18, 2012

Yesterday the WLAN light stopped lighting up on my wireless router. The DSL light comes on (green), however, the WLAN light doesn't light up and the 'inetrnet' light stays on red. My laptop is saying cannot detect network, but is detecting other wireless networks in area (so not laptop prob). Did all the unplugging, turning everything off and even pressing the reset button on the back of the router but its still not working. Tried plugging in a USB cable directly from router to laptop and 'internet' light flashed green for 1 second then went back to red and still not working.

Dell 1390 WLAN Mini-Card / Can't Connect To DHCP And Port Forwarding Not Working

Dec 22, 2011

The first is I have a laptop running XP with a Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN Mini-Card built in to it. But for some reason when I'm using that wireless connector my computer won't connect to my router and give me a 192.168.0.x address, it gives me a regular IP address. I can surf the net and everything but I can't access files on other computers. But from it it'll allow me to connect to the router admin fine.Whenever I put the mac address in to my DHCP setting on my router it comes up * RESERVED INACTIVE * and never gives my laptop a local ip address.The other problem is on my computer I've tried to set up port forwarding but it won't open the ports. My router is a Motorola SBG6580 provided by my cable company. This particular computer is connected by Ethernet and not Wifi if that makes a difference.

Dell :: 1397 WLAN Mini-Card Stops Working Only When Lots Of Data Streaming

May 15, 2013

I have a Dell Studio PC with a Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN Mini-Card. OS is Windows 7 with SP1. Intel Core 2 Duo T5800 2.00 GHz

In general I have no problems with my WIFI with simple browsing and most of my routine activities online. But any time I stream video (like youtube), music or download a large file, my WIFI spontaneously turns off. I need to either restart the computer or put the computer to sleep/wake it up for the WIFI to work again.

I have the latest drivers for the Wireless card. I scanned the forums and didn't see this problem reported elsewhere. I realize this is an old computer so I may have to install an external wireless adaptor, but I wanted to ask around before doing so.

Dell :: Truemobile 1300 WLAN Card No Longer Working Following Driver Update - Latitude D600

Aug 17, 2009

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.
