First of all make sure your dell "sees the wireless network, if it does - go back to your router program, write down all pertinant info needed for the dell under wireless network connections; SSID, encryption password, type of encryption, etc. fill in the info you wrote down. That should fix it.

Limited connectivity
If you get a 'Limited connectivity" on you wireless connection on your laptop, it means that the wireless card on your laptop probably did not get an IP address from the wireless router.
To fix this problem, right click on the wireless icon on the Task bar and then click Repair.
This will force the wireless router to issue a IP address to the wireless card on the laptop.

I have a Dell Inspiron B130 Laptop that I'm trying to connect wirelessly. It's not recognizing our home wireless network but my husband's laptop does. What can I do?


Hi,

First of all make sure that your antivirus software firewall is not blocking it.
I suggest you uninstall all the antivirus softwares your pc has completely first and then restart your pc and see if your laptop recognizes the wireless internet.

let me know the result.

Thank you for using fixya.

I have a dell wireless mouse and it used to connect with my computer and work fine. I've had it almost a year but now it will not connect to my dell laptop. The light on my laptop and on the mouse will...


Most wireless keyboards and mice have their own wireless receivers (one that should be connected to the computer). The wireless receiver usually has a connect button that you need to press in order for you to connect the keyboard or the mouse. Try holding down the connect button on the receiver and on the keyboard at the same time for five seconds and release them both after five minutes.

If that work, do the same for the mouse.

Hope this helps and have a great day!

Dell Wireless 2350 BroadBand Router


You may get some benefit from downloading and installing Netstumbler

This util will allow you to scan the channels and select a chanel with less devices on it. then change the broadcast channel in the wifi router. This may reduce interference in the connection.

Also cordless phones are notorious for interfering with wifi routers so put some distance between the router and the base if you can.

Another option is to get an external antenna for the router to boost signal strength

something like THIS or THIS and place up high on a shelf. Just check your router antenna is the sort that comes off... should unscrew. not all do unfortunately so be careful not to break yours!!

BTW - the router is not a bad unit but it also is not the best around either REVIEW
