Fitting PCI WLAN Card To A Desktop That Has Only PCIe 2.0 Slots?

Jun 4, 2011

when I browse for internal WLAN cards for my new desktop their interface is described as "PCI 32 bit", which is weird because expension slots on new desktop mobos are all PCIexpress.I know the PCIexpress's interface is physically different then PCI's, and that it carries 64 bits.So, will that work? Do you know internal cards that with PCIexpress interface?

Dell :: Vostro 460 Desktop - Wireless LAN PCIe Desktop Card Install

Jun 23, 2012

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?

Dell :: How To Install Wireless-N 1525 PCIe WLAN Card Into XPS 8500

Apr 11, 2013

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).

Dell :: Weak / Spotty Reception With DW1525 WLAN PCIe Card - Windows 7 64-bit

Jun 23, 2010

I have an XPS 8100 and have been very satisfied for the most part, but have had a persistent problem with the wireless card, the Atheros DW1525 WLAN PCIe Card. The wireless signal swings wildly between 3 bars and 5 bars - and the computer is close to the router. The card only weakly picks up other signals and it is often weak and spotty. I compared with my Dell Inspiron 13 (which has an Intel wireless N card), and it is literally 5x as fast on speed tests, picks up a lot of other signals, and is always 5 bars.

I tried to reinstall the Atheros drivers from the Dell support site, and that seemed to do the trick for a while.... the card was picking up as many signals as my notebook and at the same strength and speed. But after a Windows Update, the problem returned. I tried to reinstall the drivers again but got blue screen errors when I attempted to install Atheros' drivers... I spoke to a Dell tech, did a full factory image restore, and while I'm not getting blue screens now, the signal continues to be weak and spotty. I have Windows 7 64 bit..

TP-Link PCIe Network Card Not Detected

Nov 21, 2012

We a Q77 based Jetway JNF9E motherboard, and when we added a TP-Link PCIe network card it was not detected in device manager in windows XP. We tried a Dynamode card with a different chipset and that was also not detected. We then tried a PCIe Firewire card, and that was fine, indicating that the slot itself was OK.We then tried installing Windows 7-64, and that also failed to see either card. We updated the BIOS to the latest version, which had no effect. We then tried another PC with the same motherboard and that also showed the same problem. A USB network adaptor does work, but is not an ideal solution due to space contraints.

Dell :: Poor Signal Strength (1525 PCIe Card)

Nov 4, 2011

Just had delivered two vostro 260s desktops both with wireless cards pre installed.

My home wireless network has been in operation for months with a Linksys Dualband router and various devices (.11n and older) operating.

I set up the two PCs in my work room where the router is and they imediately connected successfully.  I moved one of the desktops to another room (about 12 metres away) and it can barely find the network.  At first the signal was not found at all then it would briefly find the network then lose it again.  I re-arranged router, modem, cables etc. to get it about 3m closer and higher up and now the new PC sees the network but the signal strength is poor and all internet actions are very slow.

To put this in some sort of context, I have an HP laptop which detects excellent signal strength from this router at the same location and all round my house.

Dell :: Precision T3500 Tower / Wireless 1520 PCIe Card - Very Slow Connection?

Dec 17, 2011

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.

Dell :: Inspiron 14R WLAN Card Disabled

Jun 30, 2011

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.

RT73 - WLAN Card Not Shown In Device Manager?

Jan 8, 2012

My wlan card has been dodgy recently disconnecting and reconnecing but now does not work at all. It is no longer shown in device manager I installed the drivers for it from the disc that came with it and ones from the internet but no luck from what I've read online it says my laptop (advent 9617 - ancient i know) came with the Ralink RT73 USB Wireless.

It also keeps popping up "this device can perform faster is you connect to a high speed port" I took off the casing to have a look at it and I can't see any dodgy wires or connections unless its somewhere I can't see or get to. I just took it out and put it back in but no luck.

I can still get on through wired LAN but live in shared accomodation and it's a bit inconvenient when I'm trying to work. Oh and there's no router problems as my phone and housemates laptops connect fine.

Dell :: 1395 Wlan Card Randomly Disconnect?

Jul 8, 2012

I have a problem with the 1395 wlan mini-card. Windows would connect to my wireless network automatically, without a hitch. Then, I suddenly disconnect from my network for no reason. when I check the wireless manager, I can't find my own network, but I can still see other people's. About a minute after that, I can't detect any network, and I must restart my laptop to fix the problem. All other computer on my network does not experience this problem. The other computer does not even report being disconnected from the wireless network. Turning the bluetooth and wireless card switch off then on again does not solve it, nor does going into device manager and disabling then enabling the wireless card work. The only way is to restart the computer.

I just finished upgrading my OS on the latitude XT  from Vista to windows 7. I formatted the hard drive before installing windows 7. This problem did not occur when I was using Vista, but it has occurred every time I boot up on windows 7. I have installed all the relevant drivers and my router is up to date on the firmware. The wireless network is encrypted using WPA2 AES, and has mac filter on, only allowing listed mac address to connect. It is broadcasting on channel 11.

I have used this computer for more than two years on Vista without this problem occurring, during which time I did several reinstall of Vista. Now, when I install windows 7 on it, this problem all of the sudden starts happening. I think it could be I forgot a driver or something, but I checked and rechecked, and did numerous reinstall of the mini-card driver to no avail.

Dell :: D620 Upgrade WLAN Card To 4965agn

Apr 2, 2012

Upgraded my D620 WLAN card from original 3965abg to 4965agn for wireless-n support.  The card is correctly installed (w/ 3 antennas) and the driver installed correctly but there seems to be a conflict with Dell Quickset utility which gives the error "WiFi Catcher band is not compatible".  Tried uninstalling the Dell Quickset, but not sure it completely removed everything.  Installed Intel PROset/Wireless but still unable to connect.  Could not find a Quick set version for Win7 - from what I have read, it seems the Vista version is noted that it does not support 4965agn.

Dell :: Inspiron 1520 Wlan Card Not Enabled

Mar 19, 2012

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.

Use the Dell Wireless WLAN Utility to enable it." When I right click on the wireless network icon it says "No wireless networks were found in range. Make sure the wireless switch on your computer is on. To see an updated list, click 'Refresh network list.'" I don't have a wireless switch. I have a wireless enable icon and it says Enabled. My wireless network is working because my phone sees it and two other networks in the neighborhood. I couldn't find the Dell Wireless WLAN Utility. I also tried my iPhone hotspot. Laptop did not detect it either.

Dell :: Wireless WLAN Card Reminder At Login E6400

Aug 16, 2009

I have a Latitude E6400 that I had to rebuild due to a hard drive failure, with a Dell 1510 WLAN card installed. Upon reinstalling the Dell WLAN Card Utility however, I now receive the following prompt every time I log into my machine:“Reminder: The Dell Wireless WLAN Card is still disabled. Slide the Wireless ON/OFF switch to enable it.”

I am able to connect to wireless networks without any issues, and when enabled it works great. I do however like to keep my wireless radio off when I am not using it. I certainly don’t need the software to tell me that my WLAN card is disabled when I already know that it is. How do I disable this message from coming up each time I log in? I don’t see any options in the software to simply disable reminders, however I don’t want to disable the software from loading altogether.

Dell :: Wireless 1502 WLAN Mini-Card For Inspiron 620

Dec 6, 2011

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 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?

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...
