Dell Inspiron 6000 PC Notebook, No Wifi Radio Signal

Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook: A few days ago my wifi signal suddenly did not show up. Blue tooth signal is still on. Fn+F2 only turn blue tooth signal on or off. Does it mean that my wifi card is dead? Help.

    Thanks Rachel.
    Still have another problem. The signal is on, but now I can't get to any available network and the following message came up:
    "Window cannot configure this wireless connection
    If you have enabled another program to manage this wireless connection, use that software
    If you want Windowns to configure this wireless connection, start the Wireless Zero Configuration (WZC) service, ...visit"

Wifi doesnt work

Make sure you have a very strong signal before you decide its not working. It can say its connected, but if the signal is weak, you still might not connect.

Inspiron 6000 has trouble picking up wireless signal

Some wireless cards are better than others at picking up weaker signals.
The problem with any wireless transmissions is that radio signals cannot pass through metallic surfaces.
You should position your wireless router away from metallic surfaces/walls and position your laptop so it can receive the radio signals without it passing through any metallic walls. If possible place the wireless router higher than at desk level.

Wifi (laptop)

built in wifi cards are very limited in range, get an external pc card
then you can get an antenna to connect to that if needed.
I use both and find the external card is best in reception.
you can connect an antenna to the internal card but you will have to leave the access panel open or make a hole in it.
