Wireless Connection Problems between an Dell Laptop and Actiontec

Wireless Problems

I've got a Dell Inspiron E1505 and it uses a Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN Mini-Card but I'm having problems logging onto my landlord's wireless network.
She uses an Actiontec DSL Modem with the wireless router in one (GT724WGR). It's a WPA-PSK.
Any time I try to connect to it, my wireless never authenticates.

I've double and triple checked the 'password', so I know that I'm not using the wrong one. There are two other computers connected to it, but they both use a USB wireless thing. Mine is inside my laptop.
I've updated my wireless card's driver and that didn't help the problem.
And I know that my wireless is still working because I was able to log onto my own wireless router. It's a Linksys WRT54GS.

Have you got permission to connect into her Internet using her wireless router?
If so you need to get the WPA encryption key from her to configure your wireless card's encryption to get access.

My Dell Inspiron E1505's wireless switch is off.


This happened to me using a Dell Inspiron laptop. The wireless switch was disabled and the answer was supposed to use both the blue Fn and regular F2 function key to enable wireless connection. I tried Fn and F2 together and it did not work. I tried just F2 alone and it worked.

Here are my recommendations for this issue:

1. Reseat the battery.
2. Remove All External Components
3. Check the battery connectors on the battery and the system. Examine the connector on the battery and the system. Make sure that there is no physical damage and that it is clear of debris.
4. Remove All External Components
5. Try a known-good battery in the system, if available.

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.

Network problems connecting to internet


Hi. If Dell is correct, then yes, it would be expensive. Your other alternative is to buy a PCMCIA Ethernet Card. They range from about $20 to $40. Or, you could go with what you suggested and do wireless via a wireless router.
