SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: dv2000 internal wireless adapter not detected.

Is there a blue light to show that the wireless is active on the laptop? If not, switch the wireless connection on once windows has loaded. It may be that you have a faulty connection between the wireless card and the motherboard. Check out this link:

SOURCE: can't enable Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN Mini-Card

I had the exact same problem and went through the same steps that he did. It was only when I searched for a physical wireless switch (on the left side of my Dell D630) that the problem was solved. I didn't even know it was there and must have inadvertently knocked into the off position.

My dell vostro A860 cannot connect to wi-fi.am usin windows 7.wat might be the problem?


Wireless Internet has become increasingly popular as a means of connecting to the Internet. Wireless networking allows for users to connect to the Internet without having to physically plug anything into the computer. If you are not able to connect to any wireless Internet connections, it is important to take a few simple troubleshooting steps on your own to understand the cause of the issue and resolve it.

1.Try connecting to multiple wireless networks. The first step in diagnosing a lack of wireless connectivity is to try more than one wireless network. This will give you an idea of whether the problem is with your laptop or just with the single wireless network to which you are trying to connect. Take your Dell D600 to one or more free public wifi hotspots and try connecting wirelessly there. If you are able to connect to other wireless networks, the issue is more likely with the single wireless network you first tried to connect to; contact the person that manages that network to resolve the connectivity issue.
2.Verify that your wireless card is enabled. If you are not able to connect to any wireless network, it is important to make sure that your laptop's wireless components are enabled. All modern laptops come with what is called a radio button, a way to enable or disable your laptop's wireless card with the touch of a button. The Dell D600 has the radio button assigned to the F2 key. To make sure it is enabled, hold down the Fn key on the bottom row of the keyboard and press the F2 key. A pop-up window on the laptop should now indicate whether your wireless card is enabled or disabled; make sure it is set to enabled.
3.Verify your wireless card drivers. Navigate to your computer's Device Manager by clicking "Start," right clicking on "My Computer," choosing "Properties," clicking the "Hardware" tab and clicking "Device Manager." Locate "Network Adapters" from the list of hardware devices and click the "+" icon next to it to expand its contents. Among the contents, locate anything with "Wireless adapter" in the name and check to see if it shows a "?" "X" or "!" over the name. If it does, or if there is no wireless adapter showing under network adapters, your wireless card may need to be replaced or may need a software-driver update. Contact the manufacturer of your computer or take the laptop to a computer-repair store for further assistance.

I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards.

How do i get wireless on my dell latitude c800?


Hi. You need to check first if your computer has its wireless driver installed. Wireless adapter should be turned on and enabled. Click on the computer icon on the lower right side of the screen and wireless adapter should be able to search for your wireless router. Click the name if your router then click connect. If it is asking for a password, type in your router password. You should be connected to the internet by this time.

Can't connect to internet


there is a switch on the front or side that needs to be put to the on position, if it's anything like mine it is very small and hared to see. If you normally have a LED that tells you that the adapter is on, it's normally near that.

No wireless working


Is the wireless adapter enabled? Some can be disabled by a small switch on the body of the laptop or by the function keys on the keyboard.
