Verizon Wireless Card not working with Dell

I have 3 computers, 2 work with my verizon wireless card. My Dell suddenly stopped recognizing the wireless card... I thought it was the card slot on my dell but when I tested my friends AT&T wireless card it was recognized immediately! Through lots of trials etc. I have figured out that it is simply something to do with the Dell and the Verizon Wireless card (I have even tried 3 other Verizon cards, one of which is a USB type, the other 2 are PC cards, none work!) I've spend hours on the phone with Verizon downloading updated drivers etc. and they can't even figure it out! Any thoughts? The problem started in December, previously it worked perfectly!

I can't get online with my Dell Inspiron 1545 w/ Verizon plug-in modem. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Mike


Hi,
I am one of Dell Certified System Expert.
For your issue, I have few suggestion. 1. Try to reinstall the modem and re-configure the modem again. 2. Try to connect your modem to a different computer to check if it will work 3. If your plug-in modem had a sim card try it to your phone to check signal and network.
if problem persist my suggestion is to contact verizon.

I am not sure which specific is your modem, however here is one of the sample for installing the wireless modem.

What type of wireless PCMCIA card would I need for my gateway solo 5300 if I have verizon fios in my home? Thanks


Any type 1 or type 2 PCMCIA or PCCARD (Not Express Card) should work fine. However, due to the age of your computer, I would buy the cheapest card that support WiFi G. Wifi G is not only faster, but has a stronger and more reliable signal over version B.

Please note that I just found this article on the Internet about Verizon Fios which you may wish to check out first. http://www22.verizon.com/residentialhelp/fiosinternet/networking/setup/wi-fi/124650.htm

Good Luck

I have an older computer that does not have a wireless card, but my internet is through a verizon um175 air card. i have gotten 10 different answers, and none work. 3 different answers from verizon alone...


Yes you can. Make sure that you disable DHCP in the lan settings section in the router. Use the computer without wireless card as the server, the router will be install in this computer. i have an air card with Sprint and I'm using Encore router and my Wii, and 3 more computer can connect without any problem.

Re: the Asus Eee PC 900 Notebook with a Linux operating system and am unable to connect. It will detect my wireless router (Cradlepoint MBR1000 using Verizon USB720). I upgraded to the Verizon USB 760...


what version of linux are you using? If it's one that came preinstalled with the laptop I suggest looking at Ubuntu netbook edition, *very* capable OS, if that can't handle it nothing will.

About my wireless card...


reset the network settings both on the computer and your router and start again. go to the website for your router and enter the ip or mac address for your wirless card and enable it on your network. to get your computer to recognise the network, turn off wireless, plug it in the local area connection first then for a few minnutes then enable the wireless and unplug the wire and it should recognise.

Wireless card not recognized


Make sure you are using the latest driver and software for the card. If you haven't already done so, I would also suggest trying the card in another computer, and a known good card in your D600, to see if the problem stays with your computer or follows the card. If it follows the card to another computer then it is most likely a problem with the card itself. If other known good cards also fail in your D600 it might be something with the D600 card slot. If the slot is the problem then I would recommend contacting Dell tech support. Larry Dell Customer Advocate
