Question about Dell Latitude D610 Notebook
I have a latitude D610 that was purchased about 5 years ago. For four years, it has been unable to detect wireless networks. I have turned off and restarted the card, but to no avail. I know the antenna are probably in the screen, and I think they are damaged. Is there any way to fix this issue without buying any new hardware?
Are you running the Dell Wireless Utility? Try stopping that service (go into Services, find the Dell program on the list, and Stop it, and then change the startup type to Manual) and start the Wireless Zero service (and change the startup type to Automatic).
When the Wireless Zero service is running, open your wireless networks list and see if you can see any networks (assuming there are some nearby to find). If you get a message that says something like "Wireless Zero is not configured to manage your network connections," go into the Advanced properties and put a check next to the box that says "Allow Wireless Zero to manage my wireless networks").
If you still can't see any wireless networks when there are some around, then maybe you do have a damaged antenna. It's probably not worth spending the money for parts and labor to have it repaired or replaced, especially if your computer is five years old.
