    Yes, the Dell has a wireless G/B card.

    Is it turned on (switch on the outside of the case)?

    What modem and router are you using?

Wireless connection is intermittent


You may have interference with other devices in the same range as your router.
If you have Vonage then you may have issues with some routers also. If you do have Vonage, then try to make sure your router is not on the same leg of your networ as your vonage modem.

Can not connect to internet


My first guess is that your Dlink ADSL modem is really a modem router, so you are getting double routing. Sometimes this works just fine, though, so I'm not confident that's the whole explanation.
You'll need to setup your IP plan carefully
set the D-Link modem(router?) to bridging mode & the DLink wireless router does the login to Exetel.
DLink wireless router WAN side: DHCP + login to Exetel
DLink wireless router LAN side: 192.168.0.1
Subnet 255.255.255.0
DHCP on: range 192.168.0.10 to .20
DNS Servers: 220.233.0.3, 220.233.0.4
with PC's wireless adaptor set to DHCP
so picks up eg:
IP address: 192.168.0.10
Gateway address: 192.168.0.1
DNS Servers: 220.233.0.3, 220.233.0.4

3d reach card


If there is a wireless g or b network within range you should be able to connected to it provided the wireless network is either open or you have the WEP or WPA key. By "within range" we are basically talking about the same building.

D-Link AirPlus DWL-G630 - problem after installing XP SP3 and new drivers


You might have a problem with this one because it is a wirelss B card (10 mbs). Most networks are connected to wireless G(54 mbs). Some networks will allow b and g as mixed signals if the router was setup that way.

Thats one of the reasons why D-Link hasn't supported that card for about 4 years now. They have drivers for it on their ftp server but they probably don't work in Vista as well as SP3.

You should upgrade to a wireless G card. The Actiontec modem can be set for mixed b and g as well.

First put in the cd that came with the wireless USB adapter. Close the auto setup page(we will use windows wireless network manager which works better with windows firewall . Plug in the wireless adapter and the laptop will automatically install the driver. If for some strange reason it asks you to install new found hardware, follow the promts and install manually and select cd and the directory the WG1111 drivers are located. Press ok and wait for install. Restart the computer.

After restart the computer will come up with a caption New Wireless Networks found. Double click on the wireless Icon in the bottom left hand corner. It will open a seperate screen with all wireless connections avaliable to you. Might be 1 or more networks, depending on whether your neighbours have wireless networks. Anyway find your specific wireless network could be for example NetGear, Dlink, or my home network. Click on connect your wireless connection. Another smaller screen will appear with Key in your password twice( WEP key or WPA key)
Key in your key or password twice and apply or ok. It will connect and close screen.
Restart computer!
After restart the computer will pick up your connection automatically and your ready to go on line. If you move your mouse down to the icon with wireless network in bottom left hand corner it will show your wireless connection in a caption stating the connection name and how strogn signal is. Connection complete.
NOTE: YOU MUST HAVE A WIRELESS MODEM OR WIRELESS HUB CONNECTED TO YOU MODEM TO USE THE WIRELESS WG1111. THANKS!

Wireless network not detected despite all elements seems working


Hello there.

This is a common problem. What i typically do on notebooks that use Intel Wireless, is install the latest drivers and Intel software from their website. 9 times out of 10 this will make it pick up a network that was not previously found, or fix problems with timeouts and so on.

Please click here then choose your version of windows, click 'Go!' and then click "Download" beside the section called "Intel® PROSet/Wireless Network Connection Software for Windows* XP/2000 32-Bit"

When you download and run this file, and install the software, you can then use the Intel utility to connect to the wireless network.

Hope this helps.
