If you are sure that it works ...just change the frequency ...see that the wlan has more than one ...numbered from 6 to 16 or so ...try that ..better look into the wireless router or what ever you have to see how it is set .
you can also try to reinstall the wifi driver ..cause it might be damaged..or not proper installed

Contact your ISP. maybe there's a compatibility issue between your wireless router and your laptop. Since you can connect to other wireless network, it means your laptop is perfectly fine.

Hi there, the only reason it doesn't work it's because the wireless key is not correct. It usually shows limited connectivity when the wireless key is not correct. Even just a letter upper or lower case will cause the problem. Since you are connected with the other computer go under the Router settings and double check the wireless key. Check what kind of encryption the router is using, make sure your wireless adapter can support it.

Problem with the display on screen

Try connecting an external monitor to the laptop and see if the colors are also present on the monitor. If the monitor display is fine, then your laptop’s LCD display panel is defective. If the monitor also displays the colors, then your problem is with either the video card or motherboard located inside your laptop.

You can verify the wireless card is connected properly by following the instructions in the service manual but I don't believe you can verify the connection of the wireless switch without completely disassembling the system. If it is under warranty do not attempt this at all, call Dell.

If it connects when the wireless light is lit then something is obviously loose.
