Question about Computers & Internet
Hi! I just got a new laptop, and I tried everything but the wireless wont connect, it does pick up the signal though. My other dell works perfectly fine, so I don't understand what the problem is.. Thank you!
Usually this is a driver problem, in which you have the wrong driver trying to configure the wireless. Some wireless drivers and cards are so similar that they will install and either show and network but won't connect, or show the card working but won't see the network. Take the cover off the bottom and get the make and model of the card, then find the right driver either at Dell's support site or driverguide.com. Dell uses several different wireless cards and checking the make and model of the card is the only sure way of knowing you have the correct driver.
