Dell Inspiron 1525 - No wired or wireless network


I suspect the Vodafone wireless adapter software is controlling the Dell wireless adapter. Start> in the search box type CMD
  • Reset WINSOCK by typing netsh winsock reset catalog
  • Reset IPv4 TCP/IP by typing netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log
  • Reset IPv6 TCP/IP by typing netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log
Next make sure the vodafone applcation is not running
Check you are getting a ip from the router by Start> in the search box type CMD
  • ipconfig /all
This will return a list of numbers - what you are looking for is a IP number for your wireless connection
A very useful tool to use for wireless issues is xirrus, http://www.xirrus.com/library/wifitools.php If you can copy the program onto the PC thats not working and install and run, this test if your adapter is working and also will display all the networks broadcasting in your area. Which will prove the hardware works.

My Dell Inspiron 1525 works well finding unsecured


I don't know if you are using the standard Windows wireless LAN management, or the special DELL application for that. Anyway, try looking for a profile of that particular network in WLAN management (either Manage Wireless Networks in Windows networking, or something to that effect in in that DELL WLAN profile management) and deleting that profile, making it possible to search for it again "for the first time", so to say.

Dell Inspiron 1525 not connecting wirelessly to Sky broadband


If your wireless router is configured with SSID, encryption, MAC address filtering (if enabled) etc. then the Dell wireless card needs to be configured with these settings to allow it to communicate with the wireless router.
Check the settings on your PC's wireless settings, and configure the Dell the same way.

My Dell Inspiron 1525 has been connected to wireless networks in the area and working perfectly. Suddenly this morning the connection was disabled and now it tells me there are no networks available....


Sometimes when you boot up the wireless card does not get an IP address from the wireless router. If you have an wireless icon on the task bar with a red X on it then right click on this icon and click Repair, if not go to the Control Panel - Network Connections - right click on the wireless connection and Repair. This will force the wireless router to issue the wireless card with new IP address.
If this doesn't work check the Device Manager to see if the wireless card is enabled and functioning, if not reinstall the wireless driver and configure it to match the wireless router settings.

Wireless Internet wont work unless I plug in a wire


QuickSet utility Wireless options can cause these issues.

There is a setting to always deactivate on battery. Make sure this is not set up. The correct setting would be Always active on battery or Always On, or no power saving options for Wi-Fi. Depending on the version of QuickSet which you have.
