Question about Dell Inspiron E1705 Notebook

1 Answer

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.

How do i get my dell inspiron E1705 to connect wirelessly?


Hello,

First of all make sure the Wifi is turned on your laptop.
You need to press Fn+F2 at the same time to turn the wireless on. Once its on you need to connect to the wifi network in range and you are good to go.

Thanks

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 do i use my built in wireless connection to connect to the internet,please.


make sure that your wireless or wifi light is on,you may try to press Fn and F2 at the same time to enable or swith on wireless..if wifi is already on,try going to start >> control panel >> network connections,go to wireless network connection and double click it, it will give you a list of wireless network,or right click and then "view available wireless network", if you get an error that windows cannot configure wireless connection,go to start >> all programs >> loo for either dell wlan utility or intel pro wireless, by opening that app,it will also search for wireless network in range,just double click on the network name where you want to connect and you sould be connected provided that "wireless network" doesnt have encryption like wpa or wep key..if your connecting to your home network,you should have wireless router at home and wireless is enabled on the router.
