Open control panel -> network and sharing center (Vista/Win 7) and change adapter settings. See if wireless network card is available. If not, get the driver from manufacturers web site and install it.
If the driver is installed, check that WLAN is not disabled by some mechanical button on laptop. Some models have these.

Hi Piyush,

Please let us know if the LED on wireless switch shows Solid Blue or off. Please let us know if can see wireless LED on keyboard hinge.

to install wireless driver.

Please try connecting through Ethernet cable and check if you are able to access internet.

Go to the Dell Support web site and download the drivers you need from the list offered.

If you visit the Dell Drivers home web page using your Vostro 1000 then you can also have the site automatically detect your Dell Service Tag which identifies your computer more precisely and will tailor the list of device drivers for you.

Wlan not working on dell vostro 1000


Try disable, then re-enable the driver, if still no luck, try to locate the wireless adapters properties an check to see if all is in order, ch, SSID, everything must match to the wireless signal. (by the way where is the signal coming from ?) your router ? or else where ?

Dell Vostro 1000 will not recognise television


Are you sure it's "F8" only? Usually most laptops use the FN+F5 to change video to external display.
