Question about Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook
My brother gave me his laptop before leaving for the army.
anyway i have been trying to connect to wireless connections (work,home,friends) and sometimes i can connect my home and my work have locks on them but i have the 64 bit code i put in and it lets me pass......... i think
basically every time i try to connect it says
"another application is controlling the wireless device"
but once in a while it will just connect
any idea what im doing wrong?
RIGHT-click on the intelPROSet/wireless "cone" icon and look for the option to allow windows to manage the wireless device. It may be under "options."
Try using the Windows wireless connection instead of the Intel one after toggling "allow windows to manage." If that doesn't work, try toggling the "allow windows" option on and off, with restarts in between.
What's happening is that both Windows and the Intel software are trying to manage the wireless connection at the same time. You need to make sure that only one of them is configured to manage your wireless connection. You may need to go into Network Connections and RIGHT-click on the wireless connection there as well.
I'll be offline for a few hours, but back up again this evening. Let me know how it's working.
