Question about Dell Inspiron E1705 Notebook

Can't connect to my wireless network via my Inspiron E1705

It's picking up the signal without any trouble but I get the error message about wzc and article 871122. I've tried following the instructions in the article but it says I have to follow the instructions from the manufacturer (Dell) for my wireless card. My machine's not under warranty any more so Dell won't talk to me.
Help!

Use the program that came with your wireless card. Do not let windows do the job. You will find this in your wireless settings. Is it the wireless device that came installed in your computer or an external device? Look at the wireless card and let me know what brand it is. This will help me with your problem. On your laptop you will have to take some screws off of the back to get to the card. Make sure that it is hooked up.

Hello,

First of all make sure the Wifi is turned on your laptop.

Your obviously having a network configuration issue. Go into Network icon, set up a network connection, make sure you have Wi-Fi and that your laptop is picking up the signal then manually set up or scan for the wifi access point, your laptop should pick up the access point and a name should appear for that wifi spot. Once that is done then you can rename your access point with your name or HOME whatever you like, its hard to explain through here.

How to fix intermittent wireless signal with Dell Inspiron 1501


It's the Wireless Zero Configuration service that's doing it. Every 10 minutes or so, the WZC service goes out and tries to look for wireless networks. During this time, it can sometimes disconnect from your wireless network. Usually its brief, merely a few seconds, but long enough to kick you out of games, messaging clients, etc.

There is no easy way to resolve this other than stopping the WZC service after startup and successful connection to your wireless. Unfortunately, if you disable this service altogether, your computer will never connect to any wireless and when looking at the Wireless networks list, it'll mention the WZC service is disabled.

You will also need to re-enable this service everytime you take your PC to places where you'll be connecting to other wireless networks. To stop this service, follow these steps:
  1. Go to Start -> Run -> and type "services.msc" (without quotes)
  2. Scroll to the very bottom of the list
  3. Right click on the Wireless Zero Configuration and choose stop
Once it stops, continue working with your wireless network. If you no longer have disconnection problems every 10 minutes roughly, you've solved your problem. Repeat the above steps after every reboot as the service will be re-enabled after the computer restarts.

Not pickin up signal


Upgrading the firmware (which forced a software reset) solved a similar problem I had with an SMC router. Have you tried logging into your router via an ethernet cable and doing a software reset? If you try this, be sure you have all the information you need to set up your wireless network again because the reset will wipe out all this information.
