I have been working with Dell on this problem for quite some time. They tried replacing drivers, uninstalling and re-installing the card, replacing the card with a new one, etc, etc. Nothing worked. Sooner or later the error came back. Their last "fix" was to suggest that I restore the system to factory default condition and start all over again. I refused to do this. I had spent over 8 months adding software, tweaking it and windows, etc. They basically threw up their hands and gave up.

The Dell tech who replaced the card tried the solution noted here and "supposedly" it was fixed. A few weeks later the error came back.

So... I still don't have a fix for this problem.

If anyone finds one please let me know.

I'll check back here periodically.

Thanx,

Randy

Good Day Dell Insiron 1525 Vista Home Basic I keep getting the windows pop-up "Dell Wireless WLAN Card Wireless Network Controller has stopped working" Problem Event Name: APPCRASH Application...


What if you uninstall the wireless network controller driver? I mean without the WLAN driver installed. In fact, this error means there's some drivers outdated issues and needs to be updated. First of all, uninstall the WLAN driver, restart your computer. Check if the problem still persists or not. If so, the problem is not with your wireless driver, could be another driver issue. Update all the hardware drivers, reinstall the latest updated Wireless driver (you will be able to find the latest driver from the Dell Official website, if you need help with this, let me know.). After everything is updated and installed, restart the system and check again.

If the problem persists, could be another problem with registry. Run a registry cleaner and clean the system as well. You can download a free System-Registry cleaner from here (click here). Open the link, click "Download Now", wait for 20 seconds, again click "Download File Now" link, and then save it. Install the program and run the cleaner (close all the running programs while running this program) by clicking the "Run Cleaner", proceed forward, you may also need to wait for few minutes/seconds while it scans the system. Again, click "Registry" on the left pane and click "Scan for issues" on the right (middle), wait for few seconds/minutes until the scanning progress reaches 100%. Click "Fix all selected issues", then "No", "Fix all selected issues" "Ok" and then "Close". Once it's done, restart your computer and check again.

Good luck.

If you need further help, let me know.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Could be spyware in action as FB is fraught with it!!!

Uninstal any anti-spyware programs(NOT to be confused with Antivirus program) / download free "malwarebytes" install / update twice / full scan.

Delete everything it finds. You may have to reboot also.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1420 that has a Microsoft Windows Error message that will not go away even when closed. It says "Dell Wireless WLAN Card Wireless Network Controller stopped working and was closed"....


Try Deleting the wireless card from Device Manager.

Beware though, if you do this all your wireless settings, such as network names and keys,will probably be deleted as well.

Then right click on the name of your computer and click scan for changes and that will then reinstall the card. Can't say it will help but it's woth a shot.
