Hi Brucemph,

I just physically fixed a dell with the same problem. Dell installs a wireless configuration software that will auto configure the wireless adapter in the event there is a "Conflict". It basically disables the default card. Look at the programs you have installed and find the Dell Wireless program. Open it and select the default wireless card that is installed on the laptop. Once that is selected, go to your network connection, right click on the network adapter choose properties, select internet protocol, right mouse click, properties and make sure the box is checked that say's obtain ip address automatically.

Let me know how you do.

Where is the wireless switch on the dell vostro 200


Unlike notebook computers, most desktops don't come with wireless networking built in. I can't find any mention on Dell's site that the Vostro 200 has wireless capability, so this computer doesn't have a wireless switch. To use your desktop computer on a wireless network, you'll need to install a wireless adapter. USB adapters are very easy to use since you just have to plug them in. They're not expensive and you can easily find them at retail stores and online.

Well Sir in this case i will advice you to disable the Dell Wireless Configuration Utility and instead use windows utility for a successful connection.

For disabling dell configuration utility follow these steps:-
1)Open dell Wlan utility , it will have five tabs at the top labeled wireless networks , link status , site monitor , diagnostics and information.
2)Click on wireless networks tab and uncheck the first option which says , "Let this tool manage your wireless network" then click ok or apply at the bottom right-hand side corner of the screen.

To Enable Windows Utility for Windows XP follow these steps:-
1)Open the Control Panel from the Start Menu.
2)From Control Panel click on network and internet connections and then open network connections from there.
3)Right-click Wireless Network Connection and choose Properties.
4)
Click on the Wireless Networks tab and if unchecked , then check the box for Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings. Then click OK.
5)Right-click on Wireless Network Connection, Select View Available Wireless Networks.
6)
This will lists all the available wireless networks in range. Select your network from the list and click Connect.
7)If you are connecting to a secured wireless network, you will be prompted for a Network key. Type the Network key(which is the password for the wireless network) and then click connect.
8)Your network list should now display your connection status. If you are connected and your router is setup for internet access, you are ready to connect to the Internet wireless.

Wireless issues with my Dell XPS/Dimension One desktop


Even if it's a new Dell, you may need to update either the drivers for the wireless card or the BIOS.

Also, verify which protocol your Dell is set to use (i.e. 802.11g, 802.11b, auto-select, etc.). Dell may have fixed to to a slower protocol for compatibility.

Does it say limited connection to network? You're connecting it through a wireless router right? Do you see your wireless router when you search for networks?
I had similar problem with my previous Dell laptop. Wireless use to work untill one day it just stopped, found the networks, but kept giving me limited connection whenever i tried to connect. I found out the problem is linked with the driver. Dell laptop i had was also on XP OS.
Maybe try reinstalling the drivers. After I formatted my computer and reinstalled drivers, it started working again.
Hope this helps.
