Question about Dell Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have an older dell desktop with a pentium4 and runs on XP. It has a Dell truemobile 1180 USB Adapter that connects to wireless networks. Everything worked fine at the last house with 2-4 out of five bars. Now when I try to connect to my network (that has 4/5 bars) it says "windows is unable to connect to the selected network. The network may no longer be in range. Please refresh the list of available networks, and try to connect again." So I refresh, and up pops my network with four bars and so the cycle goes.

In the Network Connections window, right click on the USB adapter and select Properties. Select the "Wireless Networks" tab. In the Preferred networks area, select the name of your wireless network so that it is highlighted. Then press the Remove button. Click OK.

Windows should now inform you that it has located an available network. Try connecting into it now.

TrueMobile won't connect to my network


Over the past few months I have seem more of this issue. I am beginning to think that there may be Microsoft updates that could be conflicting with the wireless network adapter config. But this is only a speculation.

In the mean time, you may have a faulty wireless card. If the unit is under warranty, have Dell replace it. If not, you could disable the internal one and purchase a Linksys Wireless G or N USB adapter from Staples....just to rule it out.
