Re: dell wireless 1450 usb adapter

Any wireless router will be ok, they are all the same standard normally 802.11G, but if your adapter is 54MBPS go for a 54G router, or if 108MBPS, go for the faster router.

My main computer is vista, the one with wireless router , but I want to use my xp computer with the dell 1450 wireless usb adapter. it won't work

Dell do not provide support for vista on the 1450 USB adapter - see here
I have not tried this - but found on another forum olution:
  1. 1) Install the Dell 1450 USB drivers on a PC with XP32 (assuming your target machine is 32-bit)
  2. 2) Copy the "2K" drivers from the install directory ( c:\program files\dell wireless ) to a flash drive.
  3. 3) Copy the "2K" drivers from the flash drive to the Vista machine. After you plug in your 1450 choose to manually select the driver then browse to that folder. You should be up an running in a few seconds.
The extra connection manager software that came with the adapter won't run on Vista but you'll still get a good wireless connection.

Dell 1450 Wireless Adapter is losing the connection after 5 minutes and then can't find the connection again without re-starting the computer. Frustrating!

Here are a few suggestions:

1. make sure that in device manager this device is set so that it does not get turned off to save power. (Start-Control Panel-System-Hardware-Device Manager-Network Adapters-Right-Click the wireless card-properties), also do the same for the USB ports

2. Install the latest drivers from - (since it is a USB Device, if installing latest version of the 1450 drivers does not fix it also update the BIOS and Chipset Drivers of your system)

3. Check for interference, especially from 2.4GHZ cordless phones

Check to see if the same thing happens when you take it to someone else's house.

I hope some of these suggestions help

Dell Wireless 2350 BroadBand Router

You may get some benefit from downloading and installing Netstumbler

This util will allow you to scan the channels and select a chanel with less devices on it. then change the broadcast channel in the wifi router. This may reduce interference in the connection.

Also cordless phones are notorious for interfering with wifi routers so put some distance between the router and the base if you can.

Another option is to get an external antenna for the router to boost signal strength

something like THIS or THIS and place up high on a shelf. Just check your router antenna is the sort that comes off... should unscrew. not all do unfortunately so be careful not to break yours!!

BTW - the router is not a bad unit but it also is not the best around either REVIEW
