Wireless card in E1505 Dell not finding networks in range

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.

Hi. You can download the driver from Dell website. I strongly recommend that even there will be more recent versions out there, stay with the versions released by Dell, Dell before releasing a driver tests it with the systems to ensure full compatibility and zero-problems with other devices:

Also for future needs, it's advisable that you go to the following web page:

Can not connect to internet using wireless


Did you input the WEP key? I will assume you are using Windows XP. So go to control panel, network connections and then go to the wireless connection and then select view wireless connections double click on the one with the highest strength, which should be your 2wire. When it asks for the network security key type in the numbers that are located on the sticker on the bottom of your router between the [########] brackets.

Internal wireless card has been disabled. How do you fix this?


Hi car7924,

First, make sure that the wireless switch on the left side of the computer is turned on (this should make the WIFI light go on -- beneath the lower right corner of the screen). If it doesn't work, then try going to Start Menu > Control Panel > Network and Internet Connections > Network Connections.

You should see the Wireless Network Adapter in the window that comes up. If you don't, you need to download the driver for that adapter. The most common adapter in the D820 is the Dell 1390 WLAN MiniCard, and the driver for it can be downloaded at the following web address:

http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/Other-DRIVERS-TOOLS/Others/Dell-Latitude-D530-Wireless-1390-WLAN-MiniCard-Driver-A17.shtml

If, on the other hand, you do see the Wireless Network Adapter, but it says "Disabled" underneath the name, then right-click it and select "Enable." This should make it work.

I hope this helps - please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Kind regards,
H2H
