Hello Mpquinn,



The first thing that I would advise you to do is,



Uninstall the WiFi Adapter totally from the System first,



(For WIndows XP)

Right-Click on my computer Icon, Properties-->Hardware-->Device Manager,



select the WiFi Adapter under network adapters, and right click on it, then select uninstall



Next, Click on Action on that Same page, and select "scan for hardware changes",


This will bring up a prompt to install the new hardware found (Which is your Wifi Adapter).



(For WIndows Vista)

Right-Click on my computer Icon, go to



Properties-->>Device Manager, select the WiFi Adapter under network adapters, and right click on it, then select uninstall



Next, Click on Action on that Same page, and select "scan for hardware changes",



This will also bring up a prompt to install the new hardware found (Which is your Wifi Adapter).



After this, Press your Wifi button on the system and ensure that it is On, then Scan for wireless networks.



It should connect like that.



Try this out and kindly let me know how it goes,



Hope this helps.



Thank you for using Fixya.


Goodluck

I cannot connect wirelessly to my dell netbook to my orange livebox


Have you tried to enable the wireless?

Look for the wireless switch on the side or front of your mini and have it turned on. Press Fn+F3 and see if the wireless adapter is enabled already.

Wireless net work & Erternet cable


Start by rebooting your livebox. Could be a few other things, make sure the drivers for your network devices, ie.. ethernet port, wireless card, are working correctly, if your drivers are, then it could be faulty hardware. Check to see if you can get online with everyting working properly at a place that offerts free internet, that will rule out your machine.

Battary indicator blinking


Those LED's indicate a battery failure. If the battery is less than 14 months old, contact Dell for a replacement, if it is older, then you can find a new battery on Google for about half the price Dell charges.

Connecting powerline ethernet adapters through orange livebox


Try to eliminate the problem into smaller parts. Try networking the two via the same power outlet via a multiple power board first in the same room. I don't have much experience with these powerline ethernet but i'm sure the configuration of these will be very similar as wireless router / access points and wireless adapter cards. However what I do know is that your power outlets need to be on the same "phase" of your electrical power system, so if you do this test I suggest (from one outlet board) you know the equipment works and your setup procedure works. then try seperating again and if it still doesnt work, check if your power outlets are wired on seperate phases (depends if your house has 3 phase wiring incoming to your home or not). Try another room or another outlet.
