Question about Dell Latitude D505 Notebook
I purchased a used laptop and I am having problems getting it to connect to my wireless linksys.
The linksys is working correctly as there are 2 other computers linking up to it.
It appears to be something monked up with the laptop.
It’s a Dell Inspirion E1505.
I don’t even know where to begin as I am almost a computer dummy.
I have followed the “diagnose connection problems” and did a “repair” thing.
Sometimes it works momentarily, then loses connection and info says limited or no connection.
Someone please help!
