Dell Wireless WLAN card error message

Hi there. I noticed you had replied to a post about this problem previously. I just wanted to make sure that you are saying to uninstall the driver, restart the computer, and then reinstall the driver. I have an Inspiron 1501 and get this error message over and over. I have done a scan with my anti virus software, but it still keeps popping up. I was worried that if I uninstalled the driver, I wouldn't be able to get back online without it. Obviously, I am a novice here and don't want to do anything that will cause more problems. The error message actually reads, "Dell Wireless WLAN Card Network Controller has encounter a problem and needs to close." If you could point me in the right direction or help me out, I would really appreciate it! Thanks a bunch!

Previously, my D Link Wireless, installed in my Dell Dimension 2400, worked just fine. We moved and now it doesn't see any wireless connections (yet my laptop is working fine). The error message has to do...


You may do a right click on the WLAN card in the network connections window
Then click on "Properties"
Then click on "Configure"
Then click on "Power Management"
There would be a check box over there "Allow the computer to turn OFF this device to save power"
Uncheck that box and restart the computer.
Hopefully, it should resolve the concern for you.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1420 that has a Microsoft Windows Error message that will not go away even when closed. It says "Dell Wireless WLAN Card Wireless Network Controller stopped working and was closed"....


Try Deleting the wireless card from Device Manager.

Beware though, if you do this all your wireless settings, such as network names and keys,will probably be deleted as well.

Then right click on the name of your computer and click scan for changes and that will then reinstall the card. Can't say it will help but it's woth a shot.

Can not connect to internet using wireless


Did you input the WEP key? I will assume you are using Windows XP. So go to control panel, network connections and then go to the wireless connection and then select view wireless connections double click on the one with the highest strength, which should be your 2wire. When it asks for the network security key type in the numbers that are located on the sticker on the bottom of your router between the [########] brackets.

Dell pc will not work with linksys router


HI Boston
I believe the wireless card that you have in your laptop is a dell wireless card.

Here are the instructions on how to get your wireless working
Start-All programs-dell wireless-dell wireless wlan card utility-open the window and on the uncheck let this tool manage your wireless.
Please make sure that Enable radio is checked otherwise no wireless networks will be detected by the computer.
Once that is done go to start control panel in the left hand side make sure classic view is what is there. Go to network connection and you would see wireless network connection. Right click and click on view available wireless networks.
click on refresh network list if any of the networks are not seen.
Still no go try to enable the radio of your wireless card by pressing fn+F2 and then try.

if your getting limited or connectivity right click on wireless network connection go to properties, select on the top the tab wireless networks and remove your network from the preferred networks click on ok.

now get back to view available networks and try to connect to your wireless network.

make sure if there is a security on ur network you are aware of the ntework key and its case senstiive as well. otherwise ask linksys to give it to u.

if your wireless says connected check the ip address and post it here . for finding ip address start-run-cmd-click on ok

in the command window type ipconfig and post the ip address here.


alternatively also try updating the wirless card from the site
