    I have done every trouble shoot available too and it still will not work.

  • Anonymous Jan 07, 2008

    Um, I do not know how to email you but I can post what it says here. There is the yellow exclamation mark on it in the device manager. The errror ir read now is when I initially click on it to see the properties it says the adaptor state is not in the registry. When the properties window opens, it goes to the advanced panel, on the general panel the error message is This device cannot start. (Code 10)

    click to start trobleshooting to start the trobleshooter for this device.

    (noneof the trobleshooter suggestions have worked yet).

    I have to leave to North Dakota today, but will be back next week. I will moniter this during my travels though.

    Thanks for your help/

First you want to make sure the pc is even powering it and it is discovered. Restart your computer, right at boot hit F2 or DEL when the pc logo shows (first thing you see) if you cannot get into your bios refer to your manual. When you get into the menu, use the arrow keys to scroll around, enter selects information, escape backs up a screen. Very simple interfeace, just browse around in all the tabs/menus until you see details about devices, or integrated peripherals. The page will show information about your wireless card, the brand, model, mac address, and enabling/disabling and not all the features may be available on your model. Make sure you can find that information in the bios. If you find it or not, continie to boot windows byt hitting escape a few times and choose save without changes. You get a reboot and windows will start again. when you get to the desktop click Start>Run  Type in the text field:   devmgmt.msc
this opens the device manager. Scroll down until you find network devices. expand the + by clicking on it and it will show devices in that category. Make sure you can find your wireless card by brand and model in that tree. Make sure it doesnt have a red x next to it or a yellow icon. if it has a red X right click the device and choose properties. From there choose the option near the bottom, its a drop down menu, select "Use this device"
If it has a yellow icon or any other icon, go into the same properties menu (right click) and email me the message in the info area in the middle of the properties page.

We have BT broadband. When we occasionally have to reset the router, everything except the 2 Dell Dimension 5150 desktops works via wireless. They refuse to reconnect. All the other Desktops / laptops work...

Not sure exactly what your hardware setup is, but I would reboot the broadband router, then reboot the wireless router. Everything should come up clean, but give it at least 5 min. To help connect after reboots, you can choose "repair" from the wireless icon in the system tray (XP?) or renew your IP address. Start --> Run... and type ipconfig /renew

Hope this helps!

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.

Dell C640 wireless not working

I used Everest home edition to find the wireless drivers for my DELL C640 laptop.   The wireless card in it is an  ntel PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B MiniPCI Adapter (IBM). I've downloaded the wireless driver from Intel's website, here:*+XP+Professional〈=eng&strOSs=44&submit=Go!#DRI
It's the 3rd result in that search page. If the link doesn't work, simply search for Intel® PRO/Wireless 2100 Network Connection on Intel's site. 
That Dell C640 wireless driver works fine for me, I'm using the wireless card to type this :)    
good luck!
