You should have a drivers disk that came with the laptop that will have your WLAN installation on it. If not you'll have to use a PC with internet connection to download and save to a USB key or something to transfer the files to your PC and install. The url for your WLAN drivers is: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=22&l=en&s=dfh&ServiceTag=&SystemID=INS_PNT_PM_1521&os=WLH&osl=en&catid=&impid=

Dell inspiron 560 won't recognize network adapter


Try reinstalling the NIC driver. If its separate network card, connected in PCI adapter, try to remove and plug it back in to see if its found after.

If these actions do not help, maybe NIC was damager with the power outage, it can happen.

Dell inspiron 560 won't recognize network adapter


if there is no netework adapter in device manager or any device that is not instaled try checking in BIOS if it is enabled. sometimes after power loss bios is reset. if it is enabled in BIOS that short power outage probably killed your network adapter. you can add some PCI network adapter and solve your problem.

My Dell Inspiron 560 suddenly stopped connecting to internet through cable-modem.


Onboard adaptor hardware failure? Or is it missing Drivers?
Wireless adaptor - did you install drivers for adaptor? Did you check that WiFi on the adaptor is switched on?


On a side note: I've found that USB 2.0 Wireless N adaptors are the best for connectivity, as they have their drivers on the adaptor, are fully plug and play (Vista/7/8 and even some models on XP). I recommend Transcend (brand name).

Either that or the ethernet chip on the motherboard is failing - you will need to disable this one from the BIOS and install a simple PCI LAN card in its place

As soon as i went from a 'B' to a 'G' router, my internet has slowed dow , worse than dial-up


The Belkin Wireless G Router lets users share files and a broadband Internet connection among their computers-without using networking cables. It features 802.11g technology that makes accessing files and networked peripherals-such as hard drives, printers, CD-ROMs, and DVDs-easier than ever. 802.11g technology provides you with networking speeds nearly five times faster than the current Wi-Fi (802.11b) standard. An integrated, 4-port 10/100Base-T Ethernet switch also allows you to connect wired computers to the network. 802.11g technology is the easiest wireless network to implement. The Router uses the wireless 802.11g 2.4GHz standard to offer you 400 feet of wireless coverage. 802.11g technology is backward compatible with the 802.11b Wi-Fi networking standard, so it allows you to implement faster wireless technologies in combination with existing 802.11b Wi-Fi networks.

so if use "g" type router the speed cannot be slow there may be some other problem....that let the internet speed down....check that......
