Question about Dell (T2349) Wireless Adapter

1 Answer

I am a teacher at an elementary school and I am trying to connect a Dell Wireless 1450 Wireless USB adaptor to a brand new Dell computer. We have wireless internet at our school. I cannot get the thing to work or connect or even get the computer to pick up the wireless connection. What am I doing wrong? I have connected the adaptor to the computer.

Hi..
so you are not able to see the networks at all,1st make sure that we are detecting the wireless network and that the drivers are installed in the computer
follow these steps..
click on start,control panel,network and internet connection and then network connection.
2)under network connection you will see a conneciton that says wireless network connection.
3)right click and click on view wireless networks,once you are in this box if it says windows cannot configure then perform step number 5 and if you can see the network perform steps no 4.
4)you will probably see the network of you school,click on the netwokr name and you will see a tab that says connect,click on connect and if the network in your school is secured then it will tell you to put in the password which you can get by speaking with the network administrator..once connected it will tell you that you are connected and then try going online..
5)if no networks are detected and says windows cannot configure,click on start,all progams,dell wireless and then click on dell wireless wlan card utility,
6)In this card utility you will see a that says general and under that tab you will see a box which will shows you the available networks then click on the network and then either you will have a connected button or cofigure button now depending upon the network it will either tell you to put the password or the network key once you do that the wireless should get connected and you should be able to go online now...
hope this steps will resolve the issue...Best of luck...
let me know incase if you see a different screen..

Try first this driver from Dell site, its another XP driver but I'm pretty sure windows 7 should be able to use it. I've been running '7 for ages now and used many many xp drivers just fine.

My main computer is vista, the one with wireless router , but I want to use my xp computer with the dell 1450 wireless usb adapter. it won't work


Dell do not provide support for vista on the 1450 USB adapter - see here http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/dsn/en/document?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=bsdv&dl=false&docid=20075A1DBD60D650E0401E0A55175C46&doclang=en
I have not tried this - but found on another forum http://www.vistaforums.com/Forum/Topic5380-21-1.aspx olution:
  1. 1) Install the Dell 1450 USB drivers on a PC with XP32 (assuming your target machine is 32-bit)
  2. 2) Copy the "2K" drivers from the install directory ( c:\program files\dell wireless ) to a flash drive.
  3. 3) Copy the "2K" drivers from the flash drive to the Vista machine. After you plug in your 1450 choose to manually select the driver then browse to that folder. You should be up an running in a few seconds.
The extra connection manager software that came with the adapter won't run on Vista but you'll still get a good wireless connection.

Upgrade of router giving connection problems


You need to check the settings on the wireless adaptor to make sure it is the same as the new router. If you had set the old router with a password, then you need to set the new one the same way. If the new router is not set with a password and the connection is open and not secured, then you need to change the settings of the computer wireless adaptor.
