you may have a poor or failing wireless card in your laptop and more than likely it is part of your motherboard and would be very costly to replace. Assuming your wireless router is good, get a wifi card for your laptop. Quick way to check your router is to have a friend bring over their laptop and check it when it is acting up.
Sometimes the wireless receiver can only connect with the signal in a location where the signal is strongest, in your own house, for example. If you carry the pc outside or elsewhere, it might not be able to connect because other wireless networks will not allow you to pirate their connection. Usually these require a password to logon. There is nothing really wrong with your pc. If you don't like this, you could try searching for an updated driver for your wireless card.
If the wireless card is about the size of a thick credit card then it is a PCMCIA card device. This card plugs into the PCMCIA slot on either the LH side or the RH side of the laptop.
You need to install the wireless card driver on the laptop and configure it to communicate with your wireless router which is connected to your Internet Service Provider.
This wireless card can also connect to the Internet on free WiFi sites.
As you are a novice, you will need a computer savy friend to help you or your friendly computer shop.
So u can connect to the router, but you arent allowet to access the internet?
The router gave your dell a new ip-number, but it dident gave you access to the net. You ned to do the settings in your router manual, let the router give your dell full access.
Go into the wireless configuration and see if the radio is enabled. The switch is for manually enabling and disabling the radio, if the radio has been disabled in the configuration then the switch will not work. The other thing you can do is, uninstall the wireless drivers from the device manager and reboot. The machine will find the wireless and reinstall the drivers. This should get it back up and running. NOTE- the radio is the terminology used for the wireless receiver, since the wireless card works on frequency it is considered a radio.
Have you tested the card in another laptop to be sure that its working? You shouldnt need updated drivers for it. Have used new card on 10 year old laptops before and they worked fine. Are you sure that the slot is functional?
