From your statements, its evident that the wireless n/w doesnt work at all, activate the wirelesss n/w on your laptop by pressing and holding the FN key and then press the F2 key on the keyboard, this would enable the wireless n/w on your computer,

Dell Inspiron 1525 not connecting wirelessly to Sky broadband


If your wireless router is configured with SSID, encryption, MAC address filtering (if enabled) etc. then the Dell wireless card needs to be configured with these settings to allow it to communicate with the wireless router.
Check the settings on your PC's wireless settings, and configure the Dell the same way.

Dell Inspiron 6000 not picking up wireless signal


There are lots of problems of using wireless LANs in metal buildings, especially if you are trying to go outside the building and into another building. What I have had to do where I work is put an external antenna on the wireless router and use that to transmit the signal beyond the metal shell of the building.

If that still does not yeild satisfactory results, you can set up another wireless router in the "home" location with an external antenna to act as a recieving point for the other router in the office ... essentially this is setting up a site to site network. With both routers working together you should resolve the wireless drop out issue.

Bestbuy also sells a Wireless Booster, this works the same way as I explained with using two routers however if you go that route be sure you have the option to either add an antenna or you can place it near a window (glass cuts down on your signal than steel).

If this fails look at replacing the wireless card; this setup will still provide benefical even if you need to replace the card as it will provide stronger signals in stormy weather as well.

Dell Inspiron 6000 with network card Intel/Pro Wireless 2200 BG


So u can connect to the router, but you arent allowet to access the internet?
The router gave your dell a new ip-number, but it dident gave you access to the net. You ned to do the settings in your router manual, let the router give your dell full access.

Good luck
