Is Dell Truemobile 1180 wireless adapter compatible with Windows Vista or Windows 7 ?if yes,where can i find the drivers.?

As you can see at this link (section compatibility) this wireless adapter is compatible up to windows XP. In case you want to use it on win 7, I suggest to try BEFORE the installation to right click on the downloaded file and check at the compatibility tab the check-box for windows xp sp3.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Not detected wireless

I will do my best to help you with this concern.

1. go to Device Manager and check all drivers if nothing is missing...if yellow exclamation point.. found-update specified driver

2. In device manager under network adapter is where you check the driver if there's no icon on it like exclamation point..

3. if all drivers are updated-tried to connect to the network.
4. if this is a laptop. make sure the radio button/ wireless switch is on.. in connecting the network.
5. if this is a desktop, make sure the wireless adapter is working fine.

6. if still unable to connect try to contact your service provider and make sure you have the right WEP/ network key to connect to your network.

I hope this will help you.

How do i use the wifi?

You will need a wifi adapter (usually a small USB device that must simply be inserted) and you will need to install the appropriate drivers for your wifi adapter. Then you will need to reboot the PC.
Once that is done, or if your manufacturer has done that for you, you should see a small icon near your system tray, near the clock (you may need to expand the tray by clicking the arrow). The icon should be a series of growing horizontal waves. Click the icon and select the "Select Network" option from the menu. You should then be able to select your wireless network by clicking on it and entering any WEP Key (password) that is neccessary. Your WEP Key should be printed on the side of your router.

I cant enable my wifi ,fn key f8 not working

You can re-enable your wireless card through the Device Manager window.
Hold Alt and double click on the My Computer icon on your desktop. Select Device Manager and then scroll down the list until you find your wireless card. It should be listed under Network Adapters. Right click on and it select Enable. That should bring your wireless back up.

Low memory or hard drive space

Sir this error is probably give to you during the installation of Windows Vista Ultimate.
Probably the problem lies in the fact that your system's specifications might not be meeting the required for Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate.
  • These are the minimum requirements to run Windows Vista on your computer:
  • [*]800 megahertz (MHz) processor and 512 MB of system memory
  • [*]20 GB hard drive with at least 15 GB of available space
  • [*]Support for Super VGA graphics
  • [*]CD-ROM drive

But it is recommended that you use the requirements needed for smooth running of Windows Vista, that are:

[*]1 gigahertz (GHz) 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor

[*]1 gigabyte (GB) of system memory (512 megabytes (MB) for Home Basic)

[*]40 GB hard drive with at least 15 GB of available space (20 GB for Home Basic)

[*]Support for DirectX 9 graphics with WDDM and 128 MB of graphics memory (32 MB for Home Basic)

[*]DVD-ROM drive

[*]Audio Output

[*]Internet access

Please ensure the following:

1. Make sure you use the LAN port.
2. Ensure the cable is in good condition. Try using new cable.
3. Ensure you installed proper network card driver.
4. Ensure the network card using correct link speed (100Mbps).
