Dell 1450 Wireless Adaptor not working

The red light does not come on and I cannot get on the internet. Does this mean the 1450 is dead, and can I replace with a different wireless adapter?

Roster, Yes, you can replace it with a different adapter.

Does the device manager recognize the d1450u adapter?
If not re-install the driver for it.
Let me know how you make out.

My computer crashed i had xp media edition then i upgraded and installed windows 7. now my dell 1450 wireless adaptor will not work, i cannot install the drivers, i get a message that it is not compatable...

Try first this driver from Dell site, its another XP driver but I'm pretty sure windows 7 should be able to use it. I've been running '7 for ages now and used many many xp drivers just fine.

If this doesnt work let me know and I'll have another go at finding you a solution :)

When i changed my isp from talktalk to sky broadband my dell 1450 adaptor can not connect even though there is a connection via ethernet cable apparently dell say it is a software problem and want to...

When it says 'Conntected: 100Mbps" on the bottom, all it's saying is that you have a physical connection between your computer and the device it's talking to.
Now one thing you need to double check is that (I assume you have a wireless router) the router or whatever device you have connecting to your ISP modem has the correct network information. For example some ISPs will give you a static IP address that you have to manually add to your router. If TalkTalk does that, and Sky doesn't, make sure your router is automatically obtaining an IP address. This should connect you to your ISP and to the internet. Then your DELL machine should get an IP address from your router and then you should be good to go.
Let me know if you need any further assistance.

Upgrade of router giving connection problems

You need to check the settings on the wireless adaptor to make sure it is the same as the new router. If you had set the old router with a password, then you need to set the new one the same way. If the new router is not set with a password and the connection is open and not secured, then you need to change the settings of the computer wireless adaptor.
