Question about Dell Inspiron Mini 10 Notebook

2 Answers

I just got my Dell Mini 10. I have a wireless connection only, nothing to plug in to (military housing). My 802.11b works, but my Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN Mini-card isn't seeing any wireless signal. How can I connect without being able to plug in? Dell Mini is new, out of the box.

Try changing your wireless router settings from 6 to 11.
Type 192.168.1.1 into your web browser and enter your router.
Usually the user name is admin and the password is left blank.

Look for "wireless settings" and change the channel from 6 to 11

My wireless on my Dell Inspiron Mini 10 has never


Your Dell may not have the wireless card driver installed.
Install the latest wireless driver.
You can download the drivers from Dell WEB site, the support download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop, better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on the bottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Tag label is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages, the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where the specific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you select the Windows XP or Vista version of the drivers for your Windows operating system. Click on this link to download the drivers: -

Hello, I got a Dell Inspiron mini 10 for christmas. and i can be on my home wireless network. then it will suddenly drop signal and i wont be on the internet any more. what's wrong with it?


hi Power off your router and wait about 45 seconds then plug in the power to the router again, restart your dell mini and see if the connect gets more stable. do you have any other wireless pc's in the house? if so do they work fine? if you dont have any other wireless pc's try to get a friend to come over with a laptop and see how their connection is to your network... that will definitely isolate if you have a router issue or a PC issue. keep in mind if you have other pcs in the house and they are hardwired into the router, they will not exhibit the connection loss that wireless pcs connected to the router will experience.


hope this helps!
