Dell Inspiron 1525 not connecting wirelessly to Sky broadband

My Dell Inspiron B130 wireless connection


Still using same Router with same WLAN protocol?
Same Network driver?
Never Updated?
Wich standard you use? 802.11 B? G? A? N?
Update Router site and client (PC) sit.
Old protocols and driver are much more densitive to interference.
New router, Microwave, Cordless, Remotes can dramatically modify a previously perfect environment.

Vista OS can't connect wireless to Dlink DI-614+ rounter


yes it does but what exactly is this it's your comp that's not connecting to your wireless network..so here try these steps...
first click start>click in start search>in that box type in services>it gives you an option of services on the same start menu at the top click on that...
it will take you to a new screen that says services at the top on that screen you need to scroll down at the bottom and look for wlan auto configuration rt click on it and click start if start is greyed out press restart....
close services down..
click start>click connect to form the start menu> and check it gives your network name in there .if it says anything like no network found in range. pls make sure that wireless switch on your laptop is turned on...
if still you're not able to connectr it's a concern with the drivers of wireless adapter on your comp genrally on new comps its quite common get the drivers reinstalled....
