Dell Inspiron 1525 not connecting wirelessly to Sky broadband

Using brand new Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop. Will connect to network and ethernet through ethernet cable but will not connect through Wireless despite the wireless signal being "excellent".

Have tried resetting router, downloading latest Dell wireless drivers but with no joy.

Using Vista Home Premium.

My PC that is 7 years old and runs XP connects fine through Wireless.

Any thoughts?

If your wireless router is configured with SSID, encryption, MAC address filtering (if enabled) etc. then the Dell wireless card needs to be configured with these settings to allow it to communicate with the wireless router.
Check the settings on your PC's wireless settings, and configure the Dell the same way.

Have you tried resetting your Wifi adapter, next time you can't connect, try using the network troubleshooter and it will ask a couple basic questions. Usually by the end of troubleshooter it will reset your wireless adapter.

I have forgotten my password to conect to the wireless broadband, can you help me to connect to my new computer


Use an Ethernet cable to connect a "wired" port on the router to the "wired" port on your computer.

Access the router's built-in web-server interface, and run the "Wireless Network Setup Wizard", to configure your wireless network.

My Dell Inspiron 1525 has been connected to wireless networks in the area and working perfectly. Suddenly this morning the connection was disabled and now it tells me there are no networks available....


Sometimes when you boot up the wireless card does not get an IP address from the wireless router. If you have an wireless icon on the task bar with a red X on it then right click on this icon and click Repair, if not go to the Control Panel - Network Connections - right click on the wireless connection and Repair. This will force the wireless router to issue the wireless card with new IP address.
If this doesn't work check the Device Manager to see if the wireless card is enabled and functioning, if not reinstall the wireless driver and configure it to match the wireless router settings.
