Hi!

Check with your laptop's manual or specification sheet if it came with a built in wireless adapter. If it does, then you do not need to use a wireless adapter. All you have to do is to configure the wireless utility of your laptop to connect to your preferred wireless network.

You can also check Device Manager to check if there is a built in wireless adapter. Assuming you are using Windows XP - Go to Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager. Look for Network Adapters. Check if there is anything under Network Adapters that says "wireless" or 802.11A/B or G. If there is, then again you do not need to install a wireless adapter.

Once you verified that there is a built in wireless adapter, just configure the wireless adapter utility to connect wirelessly to you preferred network.

Good luck and have a nice day!

According to the Manufacturer's Specs. this unit did not have built-in WIFI. You should purchase a PCMCIA wireless adapter.
see specs:

Since the laptop has XP, it should be easy to install.

Does Your Xbox have the built in WiFi, as in [This] model or are you using the adapter for the old one.

If the computer is able to see wireless signals but is unable to connect, it is most likely an issue with the card, which unfortunately is internal. It could just be the driver - go to support.dell.com, punch in your service tag and download the wireless driver for your PC and install it. If that does not work, reboot your wireless router. If that still does not work, it's the hardware and cheapest option is to a get USB wifi adapter.

Please test the WiFi with a laptop or netbook, if Internet works with it, maybe you have bad settings into the wireless adapter, you could use the PC wireless connection parameters (SSID, IP address, subnet mask, gateway, DNS) as reference with the data obtained with the TV wireless adapter, the only difference must be the IP address, the rest must be the same since they're using the same network.
