Question about Dell Inspiron 9300 PC Notebook
A few days ago web pages came to a screeching halt using Firefox or IE7. The wireless connection indicates it's fine with an excellent signal at 54 Mbps. The Dell Diagnostic test at F12 says the wireless card is working. I have Norton IS in place and it says there are no virus problems. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the wirelss card until my fingers bleed. When I hook up the computer directly to the cable modem, the problem disappears. Does this mean there is an intermittent fault with the built in wirelss card? Any suggestions will be appreciated.
Norton is the problem, try and update your wireless drivers. If this doesn't work, go to the device driver and uninstall the wireless card, reboot the machine and that will force windows to load a fresh driver to the card. If windows asks to search windows update, allow it and let it complete the install, while you are doing this make sure you are connected to the router via a cable. good luck. If none of that works, you may try going to Norton and getting their Norton Removal Tool, this is the only way to truly rid the computer of this program and Norton has been known to "out of the blue" make wireless useless.
