Ive recently bought a Dell XPS 8300 desktop PC without a wireless card.
I have purchased a Dell 1520 wireless mini PCI-E card and installed it but it is not showing in the device manager at all.
The system is running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit, so i have downloaded the relevant driver for the wireless card from the Dell website but when i try to install the driver i get an error message along the lines of "No compatible hardware found. The software you are attempting to install is not supported on this system."
It clearly states that this driver is compatible with Windows 7 64 bit.
Ive tried refreshing the hardware list in device manager and searching for new hardware and ive cleaned the connector on the wireless card and reinstalled but it still isnt being recognised.
Which wireless card would you recommend for my Dell XPS 8300 desktop? It has an Intel iCore 7 CPU with 16 GB ram running on Windows 7. There are three empty PCI Express x1 slots. The router is an old Linksys Wireless Broadbank Router, 2.4 GHz, 802.11g, purchased back in 2005.
find a Driver for the NIC for windows 8 64 bit Pro. I have a Dell Latitude E6410 and the driver from Microsoft worked for the most part but I was having issues connecting to my Windows phone 8 device (Nokia 920). First I though it was my phone but when I tried other devices like my Surface I could connect with no problem. I am also running Windows 7 32 bit, when I boot up that OS I had no issues connecting to my phone. I also had issues with stable connections to my 5Ghz Wi-Fi access point. Well if any of these symptoms sound like something that you been going through then check this driver out. I used the 43224AGN 802.11 a/b/g/n 2x2 driver and now everything seems to work.
i have a Dell Precision T3500 tower running Windows 7 Ultimate. This was built and shipped in March 2011 equipped with a EMEA Dell Wireless 1520 PCIe card, which has a wireless antenna attached to the port. The PC is about 30ft from the wireless router, a BT Home hub.From outset I noticed that I was gettimng very slow connection speeds to the internet, but supposed this was because our broadband was using a standard BT line with copper cables, and we are some 3 miles from the BT exchange. I was getting speeds of around 300-500kb/s. BT have just finished installing BT Infinity in my area, offering 'up to 40mb/s' speeds. I upgraded on Friday of last week.
Here's the problem: we have three laptops in the house and they are now all getting between 15mb/s-20mb/s speeds, including my Dell Inspiron laptop which is using a Dell Wireless 1501 Mini Card to connect wirelessly. Sat next to this laptop is my Precision tower, with the wireless antenna. However, the PC is getting a speed of only 3mb/s.The modem and router are obviously working fine. Forget 40mb/s, I am quite happy with 15mb/s. But why is the PC wireless speed so poor?. For a brief five minutes or so on Friday the PC DID get 15mb/s but not since then. I cannot see any way to configure the wireless card to increase the speed.I tried disabling the Dell network adaptor, and installed and plugged in a Belkin USB wireless adaptor (on which my wife's PC had achieved 15mb/s) but this slowed the wireless even more - to around 100kb/s.
I have a Dell XPS 8300 desktop. The desktop recently got a virus which caused me to completely reformat the computer. I thought the PC came with a drivers CD but either it did not or I cannot find one. Now that I installed a fresh copy of Windows 7 it will not connect to the internet. I have tried downloading all network drivers, bios drivers and making sure BIOS is enabled but still I am unable to connect to the internet.
What can I do to fix this problem or is there any place that I can purchase the actual drivers CD for my PC so that this does not happen again? I have gone to the drivers and downloads page, put my tag number in and literally downloaded every single driver listed and still it is giving me the "no connection detected" error.
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).
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.
Want to use WOL on 8300 with Broadcom Netlink card. Everything seems to be configured correctly: bios, network card, port forwarding etc. In fact I can wake up the 8300 over the internet following a complete shut down, but only if I do it within 3 secs or so, then it fires up OK. If I wait a little longer it will not respond to the Magic packet. I notice something strange which I suspect may be related: when I restart the PC, in the power management of the Broadcom card the box is checked that allows te computer to turn off the Broadcom card to save power, while I am sure that I unchecked it before shutdown. I suspect this setting is somehow overwritten by Windows. mentioned all BIOS setting are to enable WOL. As if Windows is ensuring that the Broadcom card is powered down so it cannot receive the Magic packet to initiate a startup.
I checked the NIC Properties and the Speed & Duplex only shows the following 10 half, 10 full, 100 half, 100 full and auto. There is no 1000 half and 1000 full. My old gigabit NIC on my old computer shows all, 10s, 100s, and 1000s and the auto. They tried to fix it and even changed the driver but it still is not showing the 1000s. Their option was to change the motherboard with a refurbished one and my computer was just bought just 2 months ago. The original computer had 12GB memory, I7, AMD graphics card, 460 PSU. no blue-ray, no usb 3. The new setup is 16GB memory, I7, Nvidia GeForce GT 550 Ti, Usb 3, Blue-ray, I think 800 PSU.I am running Win 7 Home Premium 64. I have a Gigabit connection from my internet service so I wanted the NIC to go that fast too. The specs shows the computer to have a Gigabit NIC but the properties is not showing the 1000s.
I just bought an XPS 8300 brand new.After woeking OK a few days, now it connects to the Broadcom Netlink Communication card only after rebooting 3-4 times at cold-start.
All the other home computers are connecting from the first shot. (two laptops and another desktop. They much slower computers.At the begining I have re-installed the driver (from DVD and downloaded), but not this is the problem.
The computer has to get a bit warm.When it does not connect, the Dell Test tool DOES NOT SEE (does not appear in the test list) the Broadcom NetLink Gigabite Ethernet card.
I have a Dell XPS 9100 system which has a Dell Wireless-N 1525 PCIe WLAN (a/g/b/n) card which I would like to transfer into my new Dell 8500 which comes with a Dell Wireless 1703 WLAN (g/b/n) half minicard. This is because the Dell 1525 is dual band and is faster than the Dell 1525. I would like to get the procedure for installing the Wireless-N 1525 PCIe WLAN card into the XPS 8500 (and replacing the 1703 half minicard).
Cannot get my Intel WiFi Link 5300 wireless card to install properly on my my Latitude 6500 using XP SP3. I can go to the Intel website and download the latest driver but once everything has been downloaded and ran, then restarted the wireless icon says that my driver is not installed.
I have a Vostro 460 desktop, recently bought, and then realized it would be better to add wireless router. Bought router and a PCIe wireless mini card that was suggested for my PC on Dell order site. The card arrived and am trying to install. The end plate with the aerial socket is not compatible with the removable access blanks in rear of case. Have I been sent an incorrect or unsuitable card, or is there some trick or adapting needed to install this card?
Got an XPS 8300 with a 1501 Wireless-N WLAN half-mini card. I'm using a Linksys WRT160n router which can handle up to Draft 802.11n.
When wired directly to router I'm getting ~21-25Mbps. When I go wireless, it's pitiful - down to ~2-4Mbps. We just got a new laptop in the house (a chromebook actually) and the wireless throughput on that is equal to my wired throughput (21-25Mbps).
I'm using WEP security on the router.
What settings to check/modify to get my connection speed up? Everything I checked seems to be OK and the driver version is up-to-date.
I recently received the blue screen and had to do a clean install of Windows XP on my Dell Vostro 1520. I then proceeded to install the Dell drivers and downloads in the order according to Dell's website. But the wireless driver continually gave me a Setup.rul 380 error, so I did a manual install of that. Unfortunately something is still incorrect. The internet connects, but the wireless icon at the bottom has a pop that says "Adapter Problem. Driver is not installed." I don't know a lot about computers and I'm not sure if I did something wrong, but I can't figure this one out.
I own Inspiron 152 and I want it to support the 802.11 N standard, since it currently supports only B/G. The currently installed wireless card is "DW 1395". Which card should I buy to replace the existing one in order to support wireless N.
My Dell XPS 8300 has been connecting to the internet without a problem for months until this morning. This morning the computer will not connect either through the LAN or wifi adapter. The network tray icon has the yellow triangle and says "no internet access."
I have reset both the computer and router multiple times and I have also unplugged them in between. Other computers in the house connect to the router without a problem wirelessly. This leads me to believe there is something wrong with the networking/system software configuration. The computer can't ping the router. It may be the software/system config was corrupted in the last 24 hours and I may need to reinstall the operating system which I would rather not do.
It doesn't appear that any unusual software updates were made in the last 24 hours beyond Adobe Acrobat and Flash. There have been no system updates that I could identify within the last month or so.
I have a Dell Inspiron 1520 here, that we could not get to connect to the Internet, we'd only get "Local Only" both wired or wireless on any connections. After messing with it for a few hours decided best to just reformat and fix it that way. After a fresh reformat (Vista Home Premium) we get the exact same issue, with a clean install. All other computers connect with no issue, this one doesn't wireless or wired, just "local only"
dell 1520w-win7 64 bit pro version - installed new hd. Internet connection via wireless losing signal regularly since new hard drive install.."DELL 1520 oem Broadcom Wireless not working. Tested using Win7 onboard system. Says everything was ok. Yet the wireless is not "on" on the 1520 laptop. Purchased a new one; had no OEM software. Purchased Win764 bit Pro version. Installed it; finally found the original OEM resource disk from Dell and installed it. I downloaded a later version of the driver and yet it is not working.Is there a problem created by Win7 installation? How can I wake up the wireless so it can wirelessly receive and send items to my Smart Phone."
Dell Inspiron 1520 Windows XP SP 3?My Dell suddenly will not connect to access point / wireless router / DSL. Other computer in house connects fine. Computer is auto-updated by Windows, McAfee, Secunia, and frequently checked with System Mechanic, McAfee, Lavasoft, MalwareBytes. One of the auto updates may have been interrrupted.Says Wireless adapter "not present"...Does not recognize wireless in the area. Try to "repair" adapter, but message says adapter not present.I then use System Restore to 4 day earlier date and laptop connects immediately. I see a new symbol "Local Area connection on Actiontec m1000 has been added in the Network Connection window, and the Wireless Network Connection says it is connected to the correct network that has worked fine for several years.I have several Windows updates for the Malware Tool that install immediately if I reboot, but then I cannot connect to the network and have to use System Restore (which is taking longer and longer to restore...appx 1.5 hrs now).
The problem I am having is that my Dell xps 8300 does not seem to want to connect to the Internet and just comes up with the yellow exclamation mark over the signal bar, other computers are connecting to the router fine.
I'm attempting to setup this computer (Dell XPS 8300) for the first time. When I try to connect to my wireless router, it's as if the network card doesn't recognize ANY networks. (Usually, even my neighbors' signals bleed over.) I'm not too computer savvy, but I've never experience this before. Usually, I fire up a new computer and it asks for my router key. This one doesn't even act like it can find a signal. I have a Broadcam NetLink Gigabit Ethernet card installed. When I check my hardware, it says that "this device is working properly."
I just bought a XPS 8300, I use Google Chrome for a browser, cable modem internet connection, and quite often, web pages will not load quickly, or will take a couple of reloads to load properly. Any advice on how to cure this annoying trend of mine?
Here's my internet connection: modem to router (via ethernet), router to desktop (via ethernet). I should have a LAN connection. However, my desktop is on a wireless connection. Diving in further, I notice I do not even have a LAN connection available on the "Change Adapter Settings" screen (see attached photo).
How can I get my LAN connection back? I have tried to download different drivers, but to no avail.
I just purchased a XPS 8300, and I need to run both the Windows 7 32 bit and 64 bit operating systems due to some legacy software I have that won't install (or run) on the 64 bit Window 7.when I boot to the 32 bit Windows 7 my ethernet drivers are not loaded. Does the ethernet adapter provided supports a 32 bit OS and if so, how I might find and download the drivers for the ethernet adapter?
Since 2 months I have the following problem: the first time each day I power on my computer I cannot get internet access. I cannot reach the networkcenter to check if anything is wrong. Sometimes after a long wait (10 minutes) I get the alert: network adapter is not available. The only option is to power down the computer and to power on again. Usually then I have internetacces. I have run all kinds of diagnostics on the dell site but when internet acces is working nothing seems to be wrong. I have a XPS dimension 8300 with a Broadcom Netlink Gigabit Ethernet adapter
I have a laptop that I have to reinstall everything again and have 4 cd's and not sure where to begin inserting them into my computer to reinstall everything. I tried doing it once and my internet connection wouldn't work and many items had a ? under my computer and properties so must not have downloaded the drivers right?
I have a Dell XPS 8300 desktop and have been having issues with the modem connecting to the wireless network just fine but, I'm not able to access the internet. This has only occurred over the last 24 hours and is frustrating. I've read some other recent posts and have gone back and done the System Restore to before the installation of Windows Updates a day or so ago and that has worked twice today. But I'm not a PC expert and I would like to know how I could resolve this issue permanently without having to undo the updates with System Restore every time I power up and log in. How do I figure out what setting is being undone to disconnect the internet connection from my XPS 8300?
I have an Inspiron 1520 which, approximately once per day, is losing the network connection. Basically I can be right in the middle of something then all of a sudden anything internet related (eg browser, email, skype, other software) stops working, and then a few seconds later the little globe disappears from my network icon at the bottom of my screen.
The only way to get my connection back is to reboot my computer. I've tried the "repair connection" tool, but that doesn't work. I've tried waiting, but that is futile (and impractical)
This happens whether I am directly attached to the router via cable, or I am going through wireless.
Other devices are unaffected at the time. It is only my computer that loses the connection. The two phones, two other laptops, desktop and tablet all remain connected. (Hmmm - I seem to have far too many devices!)
Do I have a failing part? Or is this maybe a software issue? I'm thinking perhaps it is software because after a reboot everything returns to normal and the problem tends to go away for 24 hours or so.
My grandma has a Dell Inspiron 1520 running WinXP and has a Dell Wireless 1505 Draft 802.11n WLAN Mini-Card. The other day I reformatted her computer for her to clean things up and since then I have been unable to connect to the internet. Her computer will recognize the wireless network and connect to it but after a few minutes of trying to authenticate network address it will pop up a little window that says "limited or no connectivity." I've read countless forums on the internet using my computer and have come to the realization that it's an invalid ip address. In one post I read someone provided an ip address, subnet mask, default gateway, and a preferred DNS server code that I typed in which then showed that I was connected with wifi but still says authenticating on the WLAN card.
