Question about Dell Inspiron Computers & Internet
My laptop will connect to the wifi wherever I take it, except my house. It refuses to connect with the security code saying "invalid security code" even though I have countless other devices that use the same security code and connect instantly. I even bought a new modem to solve the problem and it does the exact same thing with that.
I would recommend "Forgetting the Network" first off in your Connections Settings. After re-scanning, make sure it is set as Home Network. From that point type the passcode into a notepad/wordpad and copy and paste it into the prompt for the passcode (this will ensure it wasn't even a finger slip).
I will continue to check, but I have only ever had a similar issue with a 4-in-1 scanner...which was just a letter's capitalization wasn't entered correctly.

SOURCE: Can't turn on wifi
you should have ACER Empower installed, so check that the wireless adapter is enabled, or press F2 on start up and look in the bios for the onboard wireless adapter and see if its enabled. If non of the above make any difference look in control panel>system>device manager>hardwre tab and look down the list for an exclamation mark, if you find one then the driver for the wireless is not installed, hence showing no device. If that does not work either then there is a possibilty that the wireless card is faulty.

check to see if driver is installed. click the start menu, Right Click "My Computer" Click Properties, go to the "Hardware" Tab, click "Device Manager"and check under "Network Adapters" to see if your card is there. if not, there will be a yellow ? right beneath "Network Adapters", see if your card is there, if not, you can google search the name and "driver download" to get your PC the driver.
