You have described the issue pretty well, however, there are some more questions which still need to be asked and we would need to go through a series of troubleshooting steps before ariving at a solution. So, I would suggest - Go to the fixya homepage and click on the free live chat link on the top right corner and whenever you see me online, just initiate a chat with me and we will carry on from there. Cheers

Can't get connected to wireless mst laptop

Here's the checklist:
  1. Make sure the wireless transceiver is turned on. Almost all laptops have a switch that lets you turn it off when not in use to conserve battery energy. The switch is usually on the front edge of the computer.
  2. Check the router protocols (for steps 2, 3, and 4, connect to the router's web page using a computer connected to the router with a network cable). If, for example, the router is using 802.11n only, and your laptop has an older wireless card (802.11b or 802.11g), they won't talk to each other. In that case, you would want to set the router to mixed protocol mode.
  3. Check the router security settings, and make sure your laptop's settings match. They should be using the same encryption (TKIP or AES), authentication type (WEP, WPA, WPA2 - WPA2 is preferred) and wireless security key/password. The laptop computer's settings are found by right-clicking the Wireless Network icon in the System Tray and selecting Properties.
  4. If the router has a limited client list, make sure the MAC address for your wireless card is properly entered on the list. If the wireless card was factory installed, the MAC address should be on a sticker on the bottom of the computer.
  5. Consider range limiting factors. If the router or laptop is located too near ductwork, metal appliances or even metal furniture framing, this could create blind spots in the broadcast patterns. Sometimes moving a few inches can make a significant difference. You can check this by right-clicking the wireless network icon in the System Tray and selecting View Available Wireless Networks. A list of networks in the neighborhood (including yours) should show the relative signal strength of each router at your location. Note that the strength of weaker signals is often highly variable - it may be different each time you refresh the view.
I think I covered everything other than hardware problems. Sometimes you can get everything matched, but the router and laptop still won't talk until you shutdown and restart both (turn the router back on first). I had a Windows Vista unit with this issue when Vista first came out - after that it never again had a connection problem with that router as far as I know.

Un able to connect the Wireless access point, from my laptop. It is showing up in "view Avialable Wireless Networks" and it is not getting connected when I say connect

The solution is to remove (Uninstall) the Dell WLAN Management software this removes the device as well. Then Reinstall the wireless card with the Drivers ONLY. (It seems the DELL software doesn't work properly with the DELL branded network card in a DELL Laptop; go figure)
When you download the driver it will unzip and try to install automatically; but this will only reinstall the offending software again, so you must cancel the installation after you unzip the file.
When I searched for new hardware again it found the device as a Broadcom wireless card but could not install the drivers. This allows you to click Update Drivers and point to the 'drivers' folder in the location that the files were unzipped to. Once the device driver alone is installed the wireless card works immediately and finds any available networks.

Contant need top reboot the program

Do a wireless scan on your computer and out how many wireless access is in your neighborhood. More than likely that your router is sharing the same wireless channel number as your neighbor's. Go to your router and cheange to opposite of what your neighbor is on.

It seems if your connected and saying limited or no connectivity.

Check this settings to your router:

Turn off the MAC filtering
Disable the wifi-protected setup

Try to change the channel of your router from 1, 6 or 11

Then check if you got the same problem as before?

Note: Try to use the updated driver of the adapter so that you can use the features that is been added to the software.

Network Cable Unplugged

This is odd as the connection icon with the cross on it refers to a wired connection and not wireless. Right click the icon then select dissable. Go to your wireless card in network connections and right click then connect. Also go into your routers properties and see if it is allocating your wireless card an IP address, this should show along side your other PC's allocated IP addreses.
