Dell Inspiron E1505 will not connect to wireless network

Even though other computers in office or at home are able to connect wirelessly, my laptop is not. I have it search for existing networks, and it comes up saying there are none available when in fact there are.

    Thank you for your imput. I tried what you suggested - again, the Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN Minicard and the 1394 Net Adapter are both enabled. The 1394 says it is connected, the Dell Wirelesss minicard says it is not connected. When you double click, a window comes up saying there are no wireless networks found in range. That's not possible, because I am connected to a computer that is connected via wireless and the laptop is right next to it. What could be the reason why the minicard, though enabled and "working properly" does not recognize a wireless network?

Try this, go to Control Panel, Wireless networks. Delete all connection showing, if any. Once done, close and restart your computer. Retry your wireless connection.

If you card does not find any networks, you may need to turn the wireless card on. This can be done from the Start menu and then wireless setting. Good luck. (Re-post if you still have problems.)

Hi,
You need to check for the wireless switch located on your laptop. Once the wireless switch is on, you'll be able to see networks in range and you will be able to connect to your network wireless.
Good Luck!

I have an inspiron E1505 and i am trying to connect to my network to get rid of viruses. I am trying to connect using Intel ProSet/Wireless, but I am still not able to connect. Any suggestions?


Hi
Need to know when you try to search the network in the intel proset , does it find the network name or not . ie. does it see your wireless connection.

Alternatively you can use the following link for troubleshooting

My labtop keeps on disconnecting from the internet it says something like unable to connect the preffered wireless network and I dont have any idea why.


Open "Networks".
Click "View Available Networks".
Click your preferred wireless network.
Click "Disconnect", to prevent your computer, in the future, from connecting to that non-functional network.
Choose a different network.
Click "Connect".

Wireless card in E1505 Dell not finding networks in range


The 1390 WLAN Minicard may not be configured to communicate with your wireless router.
Check the wireless router settings, (check the wireless settings on your other computer) and configure the 1390 WLAN with the same settings eg. SSID, WEP/WAP encryption, etc.
Is MAC address filtering enabled on your wireless router, if so add the MAC address of the 1390 WLAN to the MAC address list in the wireless router.

Check the TCP/IP properties of the 1390 WLAN card the Internet protocol should not have a fixed IP address, set it to Obtain an IP address automatically including the DNS.

Use the Ipconfig command to see the IP configuration of the network cards.

Use the Ping command to see if you can communicate with wireless router.
