Be sure you have the driver installed for the wireless card ..To do that get to the support site and download he driver for your operation system ..and run it into laptop first .
After that make sure you have a wireless source in the are a..(router or a hotspot ..)
Some laptops..have a switch button to turn on the wireless card ...Look for it ..it can be located near the power button or near the wireless led ..or somewhere on the front edge ..If it do not have one ..it means it has to be activated directly from the network places folder..Just open the folder..look for the wireless adapter icon .., click right on it ..and enable ..
This should make it visible in the task-bar tray ..and from there ..click right on the wireless icon ..and select view connection ...and in the window there is a search or scan for network link in the left area..Click on it ..and see what networks are available ...select yours..or one which is not protected by password and go for it ..
Good luck and do not forget to rate my answer..It helps my activity on the site ..Thank you for using Fixya !

I hav dell inspiron 1525 and i installed new windows vista but i couldnt connect to internet because it says "install wireless networking hardware and verify that correct drivers are loadedcan you please...


I presume that Vista has just been installed and connecting wireless. Check if the Wireless switch is on (edge on the right side. IF no change, install the software driver that is on Drivers/Utilities CD that came with your computer. Please comment if the information has been helpful. Thank you and regards.
