If you go into the device manager and click on Network adapters, is there a wireless adapter listed there? Are there any items that have an exclamation mark next to them? If you answered no to both of the above questions, then there is no wireless adapter installed. You can purchase a PCMCIA wireless adapter rather inexpensively online. ($25) It will just pop right into the PC slot on the side of the laptop.

How do I add wifi to my dell inspiron 1000 laptop using a hotspot?


  • same way you connect to any wifi. switch on the hot spot option in the device u r using as a hot spot then go to your laptop and turn on the wifi.....if u r lucky the laptop will automatically search and give you an option to connect to the wifi hotspot....otherwise u will have to go to wifi settings of your laptop and manually search for the same....visit dell.com for further help.

Hi there, i have a dell inspiron 8500 and i dont know how to connect to wifi. whenever i click wifi on the bottom right. it says no wifi connections in range. but im litterally sitting next to my wifi....


It can be either on the left hand side or on the right hand side. Make sure that its on the side that has a dot that indicates its on. You'll notice the Wi-Fi on the dashboard/panel its lit.

Please comment if the information has been useful to improve my support assistance. Thank you and regards.

Does the dell inspiron 1100 have a wireless card or capability built in? if so how do i enable it?


There is no built in wifi support. You would have to purchase a PCMCIA wifi card, OR, you can get a USB wifi adapter. (If you choose the adapter, be careful, you can break the USB ports if your are clumsy).

The BEST option is the PCMCIA card. you can likely use one that is wifi only, or you may seek to get one that is wifi and cellular (contact your cell provider for such a card and subscription rates).

Installed a rangeplus adapter on dell 1000 inspiron xp sp3 home


See if you can go into safe mode by hitting the F8 key right after the dell splash screen and right before the XP splash screen comes up. If you can get into safe mode try to uninstall the rangeplus adapter and try reinstalling again after rebooting the system normally.

Which adapter do I need to visit 'hotspots' w/my Inspiron 1000 ?


you can use this one $59 but will have to install it (not to hard), to make sure you don't already have one when booting up hit the F2 key enter the setup/bios menu and see if one is listed under wireless, if it shows one enabled.
if it is you can connect with it, there is no switch on these dells just a software switch.
this one slides in the side and sticks out link$31 as a cheaper option,
hope this helps

Cannot connect a hp psc 2410 printer to dell inspiron 1000 laptop


Try a powered USB hub, this will boost the power in the USB curcuit.
Also ensure that in Device Manager, USB Root HUB, Power Management tab, that the option to let windows turn off the device is unchecked.
