Wifi problems with Dell Inspiron E1705


LOL, sounds like you didn't hit the correct key or keystrokes.

First of all look in front and on the sides for the Wireless Switch and make sure it is turned on. Then once it is on you can toggle the wireless on or off by Keystrokes. Press and Hold the FN key located at the lower left portion of the keyboard, then hit the corresponding F1 thru F12 key that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit will have the icon of the wireless signal )))) or it will have the icon of a tower with the wireless signal )))). Normally when the correct keystrokes is hit the screen will display Wireless On or Wireless Off.

My wireless wont turn on with the Fn and F2 key.It was recently formated so i dnt knw if thats the problem


If your computer was formatted then may be a posiibility it doesnt have the drivers for the wireless card. Or may be its disabled from BIOS.
Fisrt make sure drivers are installed else you need to install drivers from dell CD or get it from dell website http://support.dell.com

To check BIOS settings.... Turn off computer Turn on and hit F2 to enter BIOS setup Find if Wireless switch is disabled Enable it incase its disabled or set it to default. Save and exit restart computer....it should be working now.

How to find wireless switch on dell inspiron 6000 laptop running windows XP


Hi there,

There is no physical wireles switch on your laptop. You should however, be able to hold down the "fn" key at bottom left of the keyboard and then hit the F2 key at top left to turn your wireless on or off. If that does not provide the desired effect, then your wireles adapter may be disabled, in which case you should right click on the wireless icon in the bottom right system tray and choose "Repair" or "Enable".

Best of luck to you.

Excellent signal but not able get access online


I always see if the wireless works withOUT the burden of the encryption. Half the time the key was wrong just to spite me. Then add in encryption after you've proved everything else works. Another not-so-funny thing is the function key RadioOff (blue function key + F2 I think) gets hit by accident sometimes and turns the radio off without telling you. You can see a msg in the Dell Wireless software on the..second tab I think, when this toggles off...--Jeb
