    is there any way you can try another network card to see if maybe you just got a bad one or see if yours is going bad?

If there are lots of WIFI connections in your area look to see if they are all using the same channel. If you and everyone else is using say channel 1, then choose channel 6 or 11.

This will help speed things up.

How do i get my dell inspiron E1705 to connect wirelessly?


Hello,

First of all make sure the Wifi is turned on your laptop.
You need to press Fn+F2 at the same time to turn the wireless on. Once its on you need to connect to the wifi network in range and you are good to go.

Thanks

Hello, I have Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop and wireless Internet doesn't connect. I see the wifi light is ON and I see in Internet connection it shows my profile as connected. But if i browse internet does...


Please connect your computer directly to your DSL / Cable modem and check if your internet is working fine, if not turn off your modem and restart after a minute or two.

Now check again if the internet is working by directly connecting your laptop to your modem. if it is not working, contact ISP. if it is working, turn on your router and check if your wireless connection is working.

If you wireless connection is still not working, please check if you have plugged the modem to the internet / WAN port behind your router.

Also try logging to your router page (refer to manual for procedure) and try changing the wireless channel.

I am not getting internet connection. It keeps saying that there is no ethernet adapter connected but I have the ethernet cord plugged in. When I turn the switch on the right of the computer for the WiFi,...


The Ethernet is still can't use for WiFi so far,but it isn't not a problem for the WiFi connect matter because there is a Net Work card itself for most Laptop today including Dell Inspiron 1525 PC Notebook, it may be the Drive matter for the Net work system,you can update it ,or there is no WiFi Net work in your place obsolutely.

I have a dell inspiron 1525 and it wont charge


Hi,


If possible could you check output voltage of the charger with a multimeter? If you can get output voltage, then might be something wrong with laptop battery charging circuit. Contact Laptop Repairing Engineer.
