SOURCE: can't connect using wirless internet with dell inspiron 2200

There is no switch on an Inspiron 2200. I would go to Dell's website and download the drivers for your model # and then uninstall the existing adapter. then try installing the new driver and let me know what happens.

DELL VOSTRO 860 UNABLE TO CONNECT WIRELESS NETWORK ON WINDOW VISTA


Check and see if your wireless network card has any problems.

My dell vostro A860 cannot connect to wi-fi.am usin windows 7.wat might be the problem?


Wireless Internet has become increasingly popular as a means of connecting to the Internet. Wireless networking allows for users to connect to the Internet without having to physically plug anything into the computer. If you are not able to connect to any wireless Internet connections, it is important to take a few simple troubleshooting steps on your own to understand the cause of the issue and resolve it.

1.Try connecting to multiple wireless networks. The first step in diagnosing a lack of wireless connectivity is to try more than one wireless network. This will give you an idea of whether the problem is with your laptop or just with the single wireless network to which you are trying to connect. Take your Dell D600 to one or more free public wifi hotspots and try connecting wirelessly there. If you are able to connect to other wireless networks, the issue is more likely with the single wireless network you first tried to connect to; contact the person that manages that network to resolve the connectivity issue.
2.Verify that your wireless card is enabled. If you are not able to connect to any wireless network, it is important to make sure that your laptop's wireless components are enabled. All modern laptops come with what is called a radio button, a way to enable or disable your laptop's wireless card with the touch of a button. The Dell D600 has the radio button assigned to the F2 key. To make sure it is enabled, hold down the Fn key on the bottom row of the keyboard and press the F2 key. A pop-up window on the laptop should now indicate whether your wireless card is enabled or disabled; make sure it is set to enabled.
3.Verify your wireless card drivers. Navigate to your computer's Device Manager by clicking "Start," right clicking on "My Computer," choosing "Properties," clicking the "Hardware" tab and clicking "Device Manager." Locate "Network Adapters" from the list of hardware devices and click the "+" icon next to it to expand its contents. Among the contents, locate anything with "Wireless adapter" in the name and check to see if it shows a "?" "X" or "!" over the name. If it does, or if there is no wireless adapter showing under network adapters, your wireless card may need to be replaced or may need a software-driver update. Contact the manufacturer of your computer or take the laptop to a computer-repair store for further assistance.

I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards.

I am unable to do a factory image restore with my Dell Vostro 1310 laptop. I am unable to select repair in advanced boot menu.


Hi,
You can't select repair from advanced boot menu without CD. If you purchase your laptop with pre-loaded (ORIGINAL) operating system you can restore by pressing F11 while restaring. It'll restore your system as same as you by from showroom. If it is a pirated software you need to insert bootable CD of Windows 7 or whatever you need & restart your system. Press F10 or change first boot device in BIOS mode. Select DVD drive. It'll continue installation...

thanks & regards

To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router's wireless settings configured and also needs the wireless cards in all the laptops and or computers to be configured with the router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.

Internal Bluetooth card, service manual link: http://support.dell.com/support/edoc....htm#wp1179838
Make sure you have the correct drivers installed for your OS and make sure that both wireless and bluetooth are enabled in the system setup. To do this, boot into the system setup by rebooting your computer and tapping on F2. On the left pane, look for Wireless (navigate using the arrow keys) then hit Enter, then navigate to bluetooth, make sure the setting is set to ENABLED (complete instructions for navigations and options selections should be illustrated on the lower portion of the setup screen). Once ENABLED, reboot into your OS and go into to control Panel open the bluetooth icon, make sure your external Bluetooth device (phone/smartphone, etc.) is set to discovery. Search for the device to see if it is detected.

The Bluetooth Icon will appear in the systray (lower right corner of your desktop task bar. Right click on that icon and then select the option you need. Make sure you enter the same device code in both the laptop and the device you want the computer to connect to. Hope this helps FixYa!
