Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook
Kindly help me fix these problem. I have a Dell INSPIRON 1501, but i cannot connect to wireless network. It tells me my Base System Driver and SM Bus Controllers are not working.
What can i do?
Depending on your ISP, this may be a common problem. I have Verizon DSL and wireless is included on the modem. I recently expirenced a similar problem and i hardwired my laptop to my modem (you can do this with your router as well) via ethernet cable and this worked for me. once you get internet this way, unplug the cable and you should be connected wirelessly

Go to "Device Manager" and look if any yellow or red alerts are being displayed next to any devices. To access the "Device Manager" go to the 'Control Panel", "Administrative Tools", "Computer Management" and select "Device Manager" located in the left side column. If they are alerts, you need to go to www.support.dell.com and select "I'm looking for drivers and downloads". If you don't have the proper version of Adobe you will be prompted to install it. Once installed return to "drivers and downloads" and enter the "service tag", (serial number) of the 1501 laptop. Dell keeps a listing of drivers for every customer's computer they sell.
