Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook
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?
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.
