On the Inspiron 5100, the wireless card can be accessed thru a door on the bottom of the laptop.
1) Remove AC power and Battery
2) Turn the computer over, loosen the captive screw (labeled "circle C") in the modem/Mini PCI card cover, and lift the cover away from the computer.
3) Disconnect the Wireless card from the attached cables. These are the Antenna wires.
4) Use your fingertips to carefully spread apart the securing taps on each side of the Wireless card until the card pops up.
5) Remove the Wireless card.

Laptop states wireless adapter not installed and configured? worked before.


To check if the wireless card is bad or OK.
Go to Control Panel - Network Connections - Is the wireless network connection listed and if so is there a red X on this connection?
If so, right click on the wireless and click Repair - this may fix your problem, it forces the wireless router to issue the wireless card with a new IP address.
If it doesn't fix the problem then go to Control Panel - System - Hardware tab - Device Manager - scroll down to Network Adapters and expand and check your wireless card, is it Working and Enabled?
If has a yellow ? against it or not working then reinstall the wireless card driver.
If the wireless card is built-in check the BIOS to see if the wireless card is enabled, if not enable the wireless card and repeat the above steps.
If this doesn't fix your problem then the wireless card is faulty and you need a new wireless card. You can get a PCMCIA wireless card to replace the faulty wireless card. If the wireless card is built-in then disable the faulty wireless card in the BIOS before you install the new wireless card.

Wireless connection


What router brand/model do you have. Is it set up to broadcast it's SSID? Has encryption been enabled on the router?

Have you used Device Manager to make sure the new wireless card is operating properly.

I hope you'll answer these questions and let me try to help before you rate this...

Wirless network card


well i think obviously the network card is damaged and causing the pc to stop when checking the pci slot that the card is in. Return to the supplier as the card should light up orange or green when operating normally, and under warranty if Os has a 12 month warranty period. Assuming you haven't had a power surge, they should replace the card.
