I have replaced my dell inspiron 6400 screen cover. Now my wifi connection does not work. I am getting a message "no wifi networks found". Manual diagnostics tool shows "scan test"...


1st : check if the wireless capability of your notebook is enabled. There might be a switch or button that needs to be pressed to enable the wireless capabilty of your notebook.

2nd : check the device manager if the wireless network card is listed with no question mark or exclamation point. if it has, then reinstall the driver.

3nd or the wireless card might loosen.. at the bottom of your notebook, you will find several screws there. look for a small box usually with 2 screws. Open that up and you should see a black and white cable connected to a small card. Ensure those 2 cables are connected. Ensure that the laptop is powered off when you do this. Then try it again.

Hope that works.

Dell inspiron 6400 wireless not working. I have tried Fn+F2 option and it shows that wireless is on, but when I go to 'Intel Proset Wireless' utility, the message asks me to 'Enable Radio'....


  1. Re-seat the wireless card
  2. Reset the bios defaults to ensure that the wireless is enabled in the BIOS
  3. Download and install the latest BIOS ver
  4. Download and install the latest Intel Wireless driver
See if you can then connect, if not, then try disabling encryption in the router and see if the system will connect in the clear.

Dell Inspiron 1525 not connecting wirelessly to Sky broadband


If your wireless router is configured with SSID, encryption, MAC address filtering (if enabled) etc. then the Dell wireless card needs to be configured with these settings to allow it to communicate with the wireless router.
Check the settings on your PC's wireless settings, and configure the Dell the same way.

Wont connect to belkin 54g with wpa security applied


Please try using Wireless 'G' mode only in the router. Also, try using 'TKIP' and not TKIP+AES for encryption.

Please rate this solution, if it works for you.

Inspiron 6400 detects networks but does not connect to internet


Make sure you are connecting to your own internet connection through your wireless router and not on your neighbor's.....limited connectivity means you are out of reach or signal is blocked....
