Can not connect to the wireless network

I have just bought a Dell laptop XPS M1330 with the built-in Dell mini card 802.11 b/g. However, the wireless signal was shown that "Can not connect to a network" at the initial set up and restart while my old laptop easily connected to the same unsecurity wireless network.
What should i do?
Thanks.

    1. Where are you connecting wirelessly? Is it on a hotspot or your own wireless access point?

    2. Are there other wireless computers working?

Refresh the network list from WZC and check if the network exists. Check the signal strength from the utility. check for any interference. Try using a different channel . As a last step try upgrading the drivers.

How can i use the sim card slot given behind my battery of dell studio 15 laptop? which type of sim card is supportable?


The SIM card is for a mobile data plan. If you go to say...AT&T and purchase a wireless data plan on the cellular network and insert the sim in the back of your laptop you will have internet access on the cellular network.

Where is the wireless card found in the dell lap top


Two possibilities:

1. the laptop has _NO_ built-in wireless capabilities -- you have to insert either a USB wireless-adapter or a PCMCIA wireless-adapter;

2. the laptop _DOES_ have built-in wireless capabilities, and the "mini-PCI" wireless card is somewhere underneath one of the "access" doors on the bottom of the laptop, or somewhere "under" the keyboard.
If it's there, leave it there -- don't try to remove it, unless you KNOW what you are doing!

In my dell studio 15, there is a sim card slot at the battery compartment. what is the function of it?


That slot is an ExpressCard Slot for WWAN cards that require a sim card in order to connect to the provider's network. Not all WWAN cards require sim cards to connect. If you get an ExpressCard WWAN card, and that card requires a sim to connect, then usually there will be a place on the card itself to put the sim. The sim slot in the battery bay is because most mini-cards do not have room to add the required sim card slot and still fit into the system.

Hi, Sometimes the built-in Windows Wireless Configuration Utility fouls up. You may have to install and use the Client Manager Application for the TrueMobile 1150 Wireless Network Card.
