My wireless works fine for my newest computer, but I can't get wireless to work on my old Dell Inspiron B120 with the old school Wireless 1390 WLAN 802.11g ExpressCard. Any solutions to how to set up wireless for this old notebook would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

The older computer probably cannot use WPA encryption. Try changing to WEP (not as secure, but better than no encryption at all)

My Dell Inspiron 1525 works well finding unsecured


I don't know if you are using the standard Windows wireless LAN management, or the special DELL application for that. Anyway, try looking for a profile of that particular network in WLAN management (either Manage Wireless Networks in Windows networking, or something to that effect in in that DELL WLAN profile management) and deleting that profile, making it possible to search for it again "for the first time", so to say.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1420 that has a Microsoft Windows Error message that will not go away even when closed. It says "Dell Wireless WLAN Card Wireless Network Controller stopped working and was closed"....


Try Deleting the wireless card from Device Manager.

Beware though, if you do this all your wireless settings, such as network names and keys,will probably be deleted as well.

Then right click on the name of your computer and click scan for changes and that will then reinstall the card. Can't say it will help but it's woth a shot.

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.

Lan wireless


I don't think the Dell B120 laptops come with wireless hardware by default, I think you have to order that as extra because mine didn't come with wireless
