Re: cant browse at a particular place
Before you attempt
to use any Wi-Fi network, find out what the SSID, Channel, Mode and WEP
key are. Some Wi-Fi locations do not require a WEP key. Many Wi-Fi
providers have this information on their web site or when you purchase
access you will be provided the information.
Ensure you have a firewall program installed and running. This will protect your data.
Start up your laptop and once booted, look for the Wi-Fi network icon in the bottom right of the screen.
Click on the Wifi Connection icon on bottom right of screen and you
should see a window that indicates connection, strength and duration.
Click on the Properties tab.
The next window will show the type of networking card installed. Click on the Wireless Networks tab.
Once the Wireless Network Connection Properties window is open you
will have two options depending on how you set up your laptop.
do not see any networks listed in Preferred or Available networks, you
will have to manually add the SSID. Click on Add.
You will have to enter the SSID and WEP key (if required). Click OK and
you should then see the network you just added in the Available
If you see the correct SSID showing in the Available Networks, then
you need to click on Configure in order to enter thecant browse at a particular place - 92752af.jpg that is
In the next window, enter the SSID for the Wi-Fi network you want
to access. Make sure you do not have CAPS lock or NUM lock while
entering the information. If a network key is required, click on "Data
Encryption and then enter the Network key you have been provided with.
Again make sure you do not have CAPS or NUM lock on. Click OK when
entered. If you have entered the key incant browse at a particular place - fccfda9.jpg message will pop up
and you will need to re-enter the key.
Next go to Start - and where it says Connect To click on that and

Network Connection and it should work.
occasions when the connection doesn't work, in these cases check your
firewall software and make sure it allows you to connect to the Wi-Fi
network. To check this, disable your firewall software and check the
connection again. If you can connect with the firewall program
disabled, you change your settings. If your firewall program is not the
problem check the SSID and WEP key information that you entered. Both
of these are case sensitive. If you had obtained SSID information from
the Internet, check with someone in the establishment to see if the
SSID has been changed.

1. In the BIOS (Boot up and press F2 to go into BIOS, find the wireless on/off setting)
2. Function (Fn) key + F2 to toggle between wireless / no wireless
3. A physical toggle switch on the left of the laptop next to the PCMCIA slot, signified by a wireless symbol (antenna with radio waves around it).
Hope one of these helps. If none of the above, try installing the proper drivers from the Dell website and try again.
yes of course you can use that , you just have to remove the voda fone card and insert o2 card in the system ,
for removing instructions , you can check out the system manuals,
from the website www.support.dell.com

It's quite cool and fast as described, I used the Vodafone Mobile connect HSDPA and I can confirm the good performance.
One serious issue are the costs, as you pay for the downloaded MB once you exceed your free data limit, Not sure if you want to use it privately, then you need to monitor the amount of downloaded data closely otherwise you will be poor very soon :-). Check at the Vodafone Home page the costs.
Install DELL Application for WireLess 370 Bluetooth Minicard. The application contains bluetooth kernel and driver. Device Manager would not show any device with "?" mark. The device would not be detected until you install the above application.
