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=

Inspiron n5040 will not pull up any websites


Inspiron N5040 requires either a Wireless-N router (for Wireless-N Wi-Fi (802.11b/g/n)) or a Fast Ethernet (10/100) connection.

Assuming that you can connect to the internet (i.e., your router and your ISP connection is okay), you may download the latest drivers for your OS from Download free driver for notebook Dell Inspiron N5040 Windows 7 XP Vista . Hope this helps.

Wlan card disabled


The Dell Latitude E6400 laptop comes with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor for fast computing and an NVIDIA graphics card for video playback, gaming and Web browsing. The laptop has a built in Wi-Fi card, letting you connect to the Internet on-the-go. However, if you're unfamiliar with Dell or the laptop's factory installed Windows Vista operating system, you might not know how to enable to Wi-Fi.

Slide the switch on the side of the laptop toward the front of the laptop. This switch enables Wi-Fi connectivity on the Dell Latitude E6400. When switched into the back position, the Wi-Fi is turned off. Turn on your Dell Latitude E6400 laptop and log into Windows Vista. Click on the Windows "Start" button. Click on "Wireless," located in the Start menu's "Show" list. A list of currently broadcasting wireless networks appears on screen. With your Wi-Fi enabled, you can connect to any of these available networks. Secured networks ask you for a password when you click "Connect," while unsecured networks connect automatically.

I want wi-fi drivers for my compaq presario v6ooo for window 7


Hello,
Try using the Vista drivers. If it won't work, install the vista drivers "manually".
Here's the instruction on how to install the driver manually. Click here
Most of the drivers for windows vista works with windows 7 as well since they have the same platform.
Hope this works. Regards

Dell inspiron 1525 not connecting to internet


Hi,

I am one of the Dell Certified System Expert.

For internet connection, there are two ways to connect to the internet. One is through wired connection (connecting LAN cable) and connecting to wireless connection (through wireless router or through wireless Modem WLAN).

For wireless check the switch located on the left side of the portable after switching check the status light located at the front left of the computer.

check the driver if it is properly installed meaning no bang(!) or question mark(?) for both ethernet (LAN port) and Wireless Device.

To check the driver go to control panel then device manager. Check the network and you should be seeing the ethernet and wireless device. If not installed use the driver cd that came with the computer.

How to check the internet connection.
For Wired connection:
First check the cable, check the LAN port in the computer there should be blinking lights, if none try to reseat the cable. Check the ipaddress of the computer and the default gateway.

This is the instruction to get the IP address and default gateway.

For windows xp
1. Click start, then choose run then on the box type CMD then click ok.
2. on the black screen type ipconfig. get the ip address and default gateway.
3. normally it will give you 192.168.XXX.XXX
4. try to type ping 192.168.XXX.XXX (this should be the gateway)
5. If you receive replies, then you are connected to the router/modem
6. then try to ping www.yahoo.com
7. if still reply then you are connected to the internet already, might be your issue is browser or security on the computer.

For vista and Windows 7
click windows then in the start search type cmd, you should be seeing cmd on the top, right click then choose run as administrator. then follow steps 2-7 above.

For wireless connection
Check the switch, and the status light, if all are checked checked the ip address and default gateway as well, the instruction is the same above.

For more information about setting up your system please refer to the link.

Thank you for choosing fixya

I reinstalled my hardrive in my dell inspirion 1525 laptop, i put in the operating disc, it loaded windows xp but i dont have any sound nor do i hve internet and i have a wireless network already set up in...


you will have to hook up an ethernet cable between your laptop and router to download those files, and you should look and check to make sure all other files and software is installed. If anything else is missing, download them at the same time as well. then disconnect from the ethernet cable, install all drivers and software, reboot, and then see if it is working. Also, make sure the switch is turned on for your wi-fi on the laptop. Almost all dell inspiron laptops have a switch or button to turn the wi-fi- on.

On my Dell Inspiron 1521: Broadcom Network Adapter Error Code 10


Go to Dell and download the driver from there. The MS driver doesn't actually control the device, only controls function after device is active and working. Look on the bottom or back of the computer for the Dell service tag number, and use this to identify the correct device and get the device drivers. You may also find some other things there that weren't installed by the OS.
