I had usualy solved mysterious problems with other intel PRO wireless cards not authenticating, loosing signal, etc, by simply upgrading to the latest intel drivers. Also using the Intel connection manager instead of the windows or Dell/other notebook manfucaturer's product is far more reliable. Hope this helps.
You should have only 1 wireless adapter, the other 1 is the ethernet adapter. If you experience low signal strength even after updating the drivers, you need to customize wireless settings on the router. You need to change the wireless mode to "802.11b and 802.11g" or "802.11g", whatever you have in your router. If this is the same with all wireless networks, wherever you go, then its an issue with the adapter, you should get a replacement.
since i got the motherboard changed, the wireless adapter had changed and i didn't realise, i was trying to download the wrong drivers, i finally got the right driver for the dell wireless wlan mini card and now everythings working fine.
from what you say, it sounds as if you have your wired and wireless card connected at the same time.
This will confuse the router as it is trying to give two different ip addresses to the one pc, which it cannot do.
If you are using the wireless adapter, make sure you dissable the wired adapter as the router will continually look for the wired ip address while allocating your wireless adapter causing instability.
Next ensure you have a good clear signal from router to notebook as this can obviously cause problems.
Lastly ensure that the wireless cards TCP/IP properties are set to obtain ip address automatically, especially if your router is DHCP enabled to allocate ip addresses automatically.
