Some Dell laptops have trouble with the wifi card, and if you try to reinstall the driver from dell.com, using the service tag from you laptop, sometimes it is difficult since there is a chance that you will find 6 or 7 different drivers for the same model, and it takes time to find out which one is the right one. My suggestion: If you can, use system restore (you can find instructions online on how to do it), and go back a few days to the day when the wifi was ok. If you try everything and "nothing", then buy a mini receiver from amazon or ebay and use it on a usb port, they work even better then the wifi card.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Debby, here is what you do; remove the battery. Next unplug the charger from the laptop. (Please make sure it is turned OFF FIRST)
Next, hold down the POWER BUTTON ON THE DELL LAPTOP for at least 30 seconds NON-STOP!!! After 30 seconds, let go of the button. Now, insert the charger ONLY and NOT the battery. If the Dell Logo comes on, problem SOLVED!!!! If not, repeat again.

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.
friends ... i discovered a way that you can power on the dell studio 1535 easily ...
first of all you know the power button .. it's now working ( or stuck ) in the other side of the labtop, there's a wifi button, when the labtop is already shutten down, you can press it and it will give a light then shuts down the light in the button, that means that it gives power, now to complete the process you should know the touch button in the left side that means Dell MediaDirect ( touch control button of the dell studio ) ..
ok, Now, do exactly what i'm telling you :)
1- when the computer is shutten down, plz press the wifi detector button one press 2- it will give a light then shuts then gives light again for a longer time. 3- when giving the first light for a short time, do not wait, press the media touch button quickly, continuesly and separetly. it it doesn't work ... try it for many times tell you know when exactly to press the media touch button
then you'll see that the labtop starts as if it was in sleep :) thanks :)
Since it sounds like an issue with the Power first try to release flea power.Disconnect the charger,remove battery,press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds.Reconnect the battery and charger.Turn on system and check if it turns on. For further help please check Dell Inspiron 1525 Manual. Also confirm if the light on the charger stays on,when connected to the system.
Hi, I think from you question your Wifi is TURNED OFF.if it is a Toshiba there is a switch on the front edge.if its a Dell there is a switch by the start button.Check to see that YOUR Wifi is turned on and active. Take care
