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.

First of all make sure that there is a wireles adapter on your laptop.
There are some XPS M170 Models without one.
If you have one, we can try to solve the problem?
1. Make sure that the driver of the Wifi adapter and the Chipset are propertly installed. Try to download the newest driver from the dell web site accordng your os
2. If there is a third party conection software like Conection manager or else, deinstall it an let windows manage your networks
Hope this helps you. I will need a screenshot and some further descriptions in order to solve the problem if the 2 solutions above dont help.

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.

Wont conect to internet


do you have an internal wireless adapter? Is the switch switched to on? Are you close enough to the wireless router. Do you have the right security code selected for connection to router? I would try resetting router and modem if the above is not the problem.

The builty-in wireless card connection stopped


Purchase either a USB or a PCMCIA wireless-adapter, install it, connect it, and use it, after "disabling" the built-in wireless-adapter.

Or, if your computer is still under "warranty", exercise the warranty to get SONY to fix it.

Bad wireless network conection?????


It could be because of a few issues. The signal from the wireless router could be too weak, try moving closer to the source of your wireless access. The wireless adapter could be faulty. There could be something in the area that is interfering with the signal (another device running on a similar frequency).
