Dell pc will not work with linksys router
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
