Question about Computers & Internet

I am looking for the driver to download onto my Dell XPS desktop running Windows XP to connect my Dell 1397 WLAN wireless network card from my Inspiron 1545 laptop. My laptop sees my network group on my destop but will not connect to it. When I try to download the "driver" from the laptop to the desktop, I get a message saying it cannot do it becuase the software/adapter is not loaded on the desktop. Help!

This is more of a operating system issue then a network card issue. It dose fall in networking. Just make sure that both computers are connected to your router. Once done read the information on the link below.

Your Dell may not have the wireless card driver installed.
Install the latest wireless driver.
You can download the drivers from Dell WEB site, the support download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop, better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on the bottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Tag label is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages, the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where the specific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you select the Windows XP or Vista version of the drivers for your Windows operating system. Click on this link to download the drivers: -

I have a westell 327w router and it won't connect to my laptop which has a dell wireless 1397 wlan card. I have tried everything I know how to do. It connect to my older laptop but won't connect to my new...


check if your dell wireless card is properly installed. to do so, right click on the MY COMPUTER icon on your desktop (or click start > right click my computer), then click on properties. Click on the hardware tab and go to device manager. a small box will appear which will list all of the hardware installed on your computer. click on the positive (+) sign beside network adapter, and make sure that it will show your dell wireless 1397 wlan card without any exclamation point or question mark beside it. if it does have the yellow ! or ? beside it, it means it's not properly installed or it's not yet installed so you might have to use the cd to install it. If you don't have the cd, download the driver from this site, http://support.us.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&releaseid=R189133&formatcnt=1&libid=0&fileid=259099 (xp).

if it is, make sure that your laptop is detecting your network from your westell 327w. to check, click start, connect to and click on wireless connections. on the wireless connections window, click on the name of your network and disconnect (if its connected already) and try to connect again.

if this doesn't solve the problem, try to click on START > RUN and on the pop up box, type in NCPA.CPL. on the network connections window, right click on the active wireless connection and click on properties. click once on tcp/ip settings to highlight the item and click on properties on the lower portion of the box. on the general tab, make sure that obtain ip address and obtain dns server is set to automatic. click on the alternate configuration tab and make sure that it's set to automatic as well.

that should solve the problem. if it doesn't try to post again what happened on this thread. thanks.

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.

I reistalled Windows XP and sincew doing so I have lost my wireless connection


This is probably because your wireless adapter or network driver was uninstalled with the installation of Windows XP. I suggest looking up your motherboard and finding its network driver. If your wireless adapter is a card, then look up that driver as well.
