I'm having problem connecting to the wirless internet on dell lataqitude e5500. The wireless is on but im unable to connect to any wirlesss networks? Can this problem be solved?

If you are using a firewall disable it there is a wireless toggle switch on the side of your laptop. It slides back and forth to turn your wireless card on and off. It has a little wireless symbol next to it, and you should NOT see red. If you see red showing, it means that the wireless adapter is turned off. Slide the adapter to the ON position, and then try to repair your wireless connection. Hope this helps

It's likely that you need drivers for your wireless network adapter. This is definitely the case if you just reinstalled Windows.

1. Go to the Dell support sight at this link:

2. Select operating system.

3. Click the down arrow next to Network.

4. Click Download in the row that's named Dell Driver, 6/17/2010,, A36.

5. Download the driver and run it to install wireless drivers.

6. Restart computer.

Good luck, please post back to this solution if you have any difficulties, and thanks for using FixYa.

I can't find the wireless switch on dell latitude e5500

Go to the start menu and click where it says run or type in right above the start button in the white field and type ncpa.cpl then push enter. Where it says wireless network, right click on it then click enable. If needed, right click again and view wireless networks or Connect/Disconnect then connect to the wireless network. Also there could be a tiny switch on the right side of the computer where you turn on the computer, there might be a button to click to turn it blue. Hope this helps

Dell latitude cp laptop how do you make it wireless for the internet

All laptops have inbuilt wireless network cards. You would need to have a wireless access point which has internet connectivity at your home or office. If available, you need to search for the wireless network and get connected. Some networks are secured so you would have to contact the administrator for the key.

No, it's probably because you have setup a wireless home network with security in place.

Go through the settings on your husband's notebook settings for your home network and set your Dell up the same way. You will need to know the SSID for the wireless network, security type and key to set it up.
