Generally, when I see this issue, the problem is usually one of the following:

The Card is turned off (Boot to BIOS and ensure the card is Enabled)

A firewall program (McAfee, Norton, F-Secure etc) is blocking network access. In this case, uninstalling the firewall, then configuring the network, then re-installing the firewall is the easiest fix

Screen goes blank when watching videos streamed from the internet


Sounds like your WLAN card this type of problem is common in HP and Dell. Try inserting a wireless USB card and intall the drivers for it. Disable your WLAN built in card by going to network connectins right click on the connection and choose disable. Run the USB card when streaming video from the internet. If the problem is corrected then the issue is for certain your WLAN card. @ that point replacing the WLAN card is optional. The USB card has better range anyway.

Hope this helps and please don't forgetr to rate. Have a great day!

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.

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.
